I am a growth-focused therapist who uses a combination of cognitive-behavioral, systemic and interpersonal techniques to help patients gain insight, focus and co-create change for better living and thriving.  My training as a cross-cultural therapist and research allows me to relate to and treat a variety of worldviews and cultural interests.  Approximately 85% of my practice is comprised of patients with whom I do not share their particular worldview, be it ethnicity, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age to mention a few.  I think this has been a strength of my practice and presence in the therapy session.  The triadic relationship of cultural awareness, knowledge, and skill represent tapestry upon which I apply my clinical skills and theoretical formulations of treatment.
