Hello. My name is Andrew and I'm a clinical psychotherapist (LCSW #88861). I provide individual therapy to adults via telehealth in California and Connecticut.That I use a blend of Psychodynamic Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy, which means that we will focus on developing insight and collaborating on therapy goals. What matters most to me in therapy is creating a safe and trusting environment for you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

We'll start with brief introductions and then we'll review standard policies and practices. Once we get through business side of things, I'll ask you what is bringing you into therapy and also what you're hoping to get out of therapy. Here is where we start to develop our treatment goals which will give us a good direction going forward.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I strive to be compassionate, mindful, and affirming. My experience in various mental health settings and roles throughout my 15 years has given me a broad foundational knowledge and perspective. My primary hope is that you at least feel heard, understood, and accepted.
