I provide both time-limited and long-term individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I work with a wide range of issues ranging from depression, sadness, anxiety, grief, work-related difficulties, parenting related issues, and intimacy related concerns to more severe issues such as schizophrenia, personality disorders and trauma related symptoms. I also work with couples and have extensive training in working with families and adolescents.

I work best with people interested in making significant changes in their inner lives and circumstances. In my practice, I provide you with a place to speak freely, so that through this singular experience of speaking you can articulate your desire and live your life according to your passions.

As a Candidate Psychoanalyst, I see people in Lacanian Psychoanalysis. If you are interested in exploring the option of analysis, we can meet for a few preliminary sessions in order to establish whether this is a good fit for what you are looking for. For more information on Lacanian Psychoanalysis, please see my website.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I find that my way of working is quite effective with highly successful people whose way of being in the world is no longer serving them like it used to. These folks often feel empty, angry, confused and as having lost their passion. I have worked quite successfully with many people who seem to fit this particular set of circumstances.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

My theoretical orientation is highly influenced by the fact that I am a Lacanian psychoanalyst in formation or training. My practice also draws from schizoanalysis, family systems theory, Gestalt and existential philosophy.
