At heart, my therapy is psychodynamic and relational, viewing who we are today to be a result of all our life experiences and especially our interactions with the people we're closest to. Much of my understanding is based on attachment theory, a carefully researched framework identifying how relationship patterns evolve and impact behavior over time. To this core, I have added insights generated by modern scientific research into the mind and brain. Particularly useful information has come from studies into the nature of our emotions and what creates contentedness versus negativity, and into our mind's ability to improve itself by deliberately changing how we think. By blending the contributions from all these sources and more, I can offer a treatment approach to match each person's individual needs.
