About

Andrew’s practice is rooted in empathy, rapport building, goal development, and a strengths-based approach to help clients address key focus areas in therapy. He is dedicated to a collaborative relationship with the direction of care determined by each client, with the guidance and support of a therapist to help achieve their identified therapeutic objectives. He utilizes psychodynamic practice to help clients reflect on experiences that have shaped their lives and present issues of focus. Andrew provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help clients gain a greater understanding of the connection and interaction between one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Engaging with CBT and DBT will help one better manage strong, complex emotions and apply strategies to address difficulties with conflict management and interpersonal relationships. Andrew additionally practices from a trauma-focused perspective by working with clients who have endured many forms of traumatic events and experiences.

When not in session, Andrew enjoys exercise, watching sports and movies, and spending time with his family and friends. Outside of working on issues directly connected to a therapeutic outlook, Andrew is invested in getting to know each client as a human being, valuing their personal interests and qualities as part of building a comfortable and relaxed space for the most productive personal work to take place.
