My Approach to Helping

The right therapist can help you better understand yourself - who you are, how your hidden fears and motivations affect how you think - to disrupt life patterns that hold you back.

I am a licensed psychotherapist with extensive training in contemporary psychoanalytic practice and theory. I help you explore past experiences that get in your way in a caring, safe, judgment-free environment. In so doing, we can help you overcome issues such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, anger, stagnant career or personal life, and difficulty with maintaining or creating healthy relationships.
