My Approach to Helping
Life, distilled, is about how you handle your relationships with other people. (Good) therapy, distilled, is a collaboration between two people with a common goal: to close the gap between who you are now and who you want to be. I work very interactively with my patients so that, together, we can create the right kind of therapy experience to transform them. Many of my patients are therapy "veterans" who were underwhelmed by their past experience in therapy --finding it awkward, stagnant, or, frankly, boring-- and are now interested in doing a different, more active, kind of work on themselves. I use my training in relational psychoanalysis, as well as my strong interest in Buddhist psychology, to specialize in working with people --usually smart, creative, somewhat unconventional people-- who want to ask themselves meaningful questions and address core identity issues. I see your decision to start therapy as a commitment to yourself to live more consciously, to get to know what matters to you instead of getting stuck on what's expected of you. To help you get there I listen, ask questions, interpret...and say what I really think.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

There are people who will tell you otherwise, but I am emphatically not one of them: it is important to respect—even like—your therapist as a person, and to have the sense that they are at least making a credible effort to live out the principles they’re espousing. Bonus points if you get the sense they like you back, but at the very least you should feel that they respect—and see possibility in—you. Don't confuse being liked or respected with being made too comfortable, though; if your sense of yourself is never being challenged in therapy, you’re probably not getting much out of it. It's not your responsibility to make your therapist comfortable, either; a good therapist will help you feel free to ask them questions, give voice to your honest reactions to how they are interacting with you, and even disagree with their conclusions. The fit between you and your therapist is the single most important predictor of how successful the therapy will be—studies consistently prove this—so take the time you need to find one who speaks your language... or, at least, one whose language you want to learn.
