I have more than 20 years experience working with clients to help them heal from painful past experiences. This often includes addressing family, career, and relationship issues, as well as recognizing dominant patterns of thinking and behavior. In my practice I use a relational psychodynamic framework that focuses on examining the ways we relate to ourselves.
