My Approach to Helping

At some point in our lives we all experience the full force of life’s challenges. Sometimes the distress, pain, alienation or isolation is too intense for us to traverse life’s path alone. Yet, for many of us, asking for help or inviting others into our private world is equally difficult. I hope to convince you that therapy can help us understand conflicts underlying these challenges. Through insight, self-empowerment and enhanced emotional regulation, we can become more adaptive and begin to heal and grow in the face of challenges or transitions. Therapy can also help to cultivate a greater sense of meaning and purpose in our live.

I specialize in psychoanalytically-oriented treatment for emotional difficulties or dissatisfaction in life, including anxiety, depression, grief, relationship difficulties, NPD, OCD, trauma, aging, and first generation immigrants andor their children. The frequency of treatment is typically once a week and sometimes twice a week.

In my pursuit of contentment and meaning in life, I have traversed English literature in Shanghai, cognitive psychology at McGill in the 90s, and research on subjective experiences of happiness at the University of Chicago. My passion has always been to be a fellow traveler with individuals in their journeys to insight and enhanced satisfaction in life.
