My Approach to Helping

In life, we travel through the present moment while simultaneously being influenced by the past. At times this may feel confusing, jumbled, frightening or damn-near impossible. Who am I? What am I doing? Where am I going? These are just some of the questions we ask ourselves -- the ones that keep us up at night. While I cannot answer these questions for you, through Psychoanalysis I can offer you the space to explore these deep questions and support you through your journey into yourself -- with all its twists and turns.

This is a collaborative process. Together we will take the plunge into your history, wade through experiences and relationship dynamics that have shaped your world, and dream of new possibilities and potentials that have until now remained out of reach.

Psychoanalysis is not easy, but nothing that touches the soul is. To quote Neville Symington, "Psychoanalysis is not for the person who has had a breakdown and just wants to start functioning again, because as the analysis proceeds he may have to revise his whole life and alter it radically. I think that psychoanalysis is for those who have a curiosity about life, but also wish to live it inwardly" (from The Psychoanalytic Experience). If you wish to explore yourself in-depth and exist as your truest self, I invite you to contact me. I am accepting Clients virtually and in-person in Los Angeles and Newport Beach.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Research Psychoanalytic Candidate at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles under the supervision of Cheryl Dale. I work with adults of all backgrounds and expressions of gender, sexuality and selfhood in general. In addition to my Psychoanalytic training, I also hold an MFA in Art & Art Theory, which informs my work deeply.
