My Approach to Helping
Finding a therapist can be a daunting process. I believe it is important to feel at ease in order to do the work therapy entails. I provide a comfortable, down-to-earth environment that will allow you to develop insight, find more choices in your life, and to build self confidence. I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, however unlike classical analysis I do not act as a blank screen and have a contemporary approach. I provide feedback and believe in mutual collaboration between patient and therapist. I also believe it is important to modify my approach based on the needs of the individual.

The group is open to anyone experiencing a loss, regardless of the relationship to the person or the amount of time that has passed since the loss.
