I work with patients experiencing relationship issues individually, as well as in couples therapy. In my work, I aim to help you become more attuned to your partner, learn to set appropriate boundaries, as well as develop a greater awareness of your own needs in your relationship, and identify ways to assert them.
I appreciate the challenge of working with patients with personality disorders, who are often misunderstood. I have attended several seminars and training courses to deepen my understanding of these conditions and to give me tools to help my patients better. I approach my patients with personality disorders with utmost sensitivity and aim to create a safe emotional environment for them because I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is absolutely key to our successful work together.
I have worked with patients with anxiety for many years, using a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques. I have seen positive results in my patients with anxiety, such as reduction in avoidant behaviors, less fearfulness, and greater willingness to engage in social and other anxiety-provoking activities.
I believe that many problems in our lives arise out of inner conflicts just outside of our conscious awareness. It is my job to help you uncover those unconscious conflicts preventing you from achieving your full potential. I will partner with you to help you understand yourself better, and to enable you to effect meaningful change in you life.
Oftentimes, traumatic experiences are transmitted across generations, usually through unconscious processes that parents and children are not even fully aware of. Outside of their awareness, trauma exerts its implacable toll as it lives on in subsequent generations of a family. Therapy can help people gain an awareness and understanding of the trauma and its manifestations, and to free themselves from some of the destructive effects of intergenerational trauma.
