I consider it my passion and privilege to accompany you on the journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. My first priority as a therapist is to help you feel welcomed and understood. Together, we work to create a narrative of your life history that provides a context for understanding your most troubling thoughts, feelings, and choices. As you begin to understand and accept yourself and your past, it becomes easier to take risks in current relationships and in life. As a therapist, I try to create a safe enough environment for us to explore your most painful and shameful experiences and to begin to experiment with new ways of being and relating to the world. My ultimate hope is to facilitate a process in which you feel a greater sense of freedom from the ghosts of your past and courage in participating in all that life has to offer, with all its richness, beauty, and inevitable pain. I feel honored to be part of your journey of healing and growth, even as I feel grateful to those who have accompanied me on my journey.

More Info About My Practice

I work with adolescents, adults, and couples. My passion is in providing longer-term, depth-oriented therapy that not only addresses immediate symptoms and concerns but attempts to create lasting change in long-standing emotional patterns. In addition to traditional long-term therapy, I offer short-term treatment and consultation, depending on your needs and preferences. Although I welcome individuals who have never tried psychotherapy before, I am particularly interested in working with those who have found previous treatment experiences unhelpful or limited. To everyone who comes to my office, I attempt to extend my compassionate presence as well as the benefits of extensive training as a psychoanalyst and many years of experience as a clinician and an academic.
