I am trained in both traditional Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Therapy, and also in more alternative techniques such as Gestalt Therapy, Stress Management, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Meditation/Mindfulness, Trauma and PTSD Therapy. I strongly believe in using whatever methods work to help you realize your own strengths, gain new perspectives, and learn new coping skills.
