My motto is, "Use your head and follow your heart."
Would you like to relax, become less anxious and depressed? I teach stress management techniques and help people recover from traumatic experiences. Sometimes we'll laugh together.
People I work with describe me as warm, concerned, available, and interactive.
I am a licensed psychoanalyst as well as a yoga teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance and the International Yoga Therapy Association; I am experienced in helping people of all ages and backgrounds.
Sliding scale referrals and some insurance plans accepted.

This book is written for people in therapy, therapists, and therapists in training.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
