    My approach to psychotherapy is based on psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, which means I try to help you make sense of your experience, understand repetitive patterns in your life, find meaning, and feel better. I am influenced by both traditional and contemporary psychoanalytic theory including: Object Relations, Jungian and Post-Jungian Analytical Psychology, Self-Psychology, and Intersubjectivity Theory. I also have a strong interest in psychotherapy integration. I try to work collaboratively and empathically with patients to find an evidence-based approach that works best for you. I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Mindfulness-based strategies into my clinical work.
