I Work With:


I work with men and women (age 18 and older) to overcome the challenges associated with:


  • Anxiety

  • Panic attacks

  • Depression

  • OCD

  • Sexual/physical/emotional abuse history

  • Infidelity 

  • Unhappy relationships/marriages

  • PTSD

  • Life dissatisfaction

  • Difficulties with life stage transitions


I also particularly enjoy working with young adults who feel “stuck” or have had a failure to launch into independent adult lives.


I am LGBTQ+ friendly and work with all cultures, ethnic groups, races and religions. I want to understand you and if I don’t understand something about your culture, I will take it upon myself to either ask you or learn more on my own.


My Approach:


I generally work psychodynamically, which means that I am interested in helping you understand the forces/thoughts/feelings/life experiences that keep you from living and loving well.  In therapy, this looks like a conversation in which you lead the way. I'll help you make connections between your thoughts, feelings and memories so that it becomes clear how these forces are affecting the way you relate to others and experience the world. We can always discuss how active and/or directive you would like me to be.


I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and use some of the principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy in my work.  These are more structured therapies that may include homework for you to do in between sessions. These modalities tend to offer some symptom relief in the short term if you practice the skills you learn in between our sessions. 


Multiple sessions per week is often a good choice for those who find they have a lot more to say at the end of a once a week session, those who are working through traumatic memories or those who are simply very curious about who they are and what makes them “tick”. I am currently undergoing training to become certified as a psychoanalyst. For those who are interested in psychoanalysis, and can make a commitment to three or more sessions for a period of at least a year, I will offer sessions at very low cost. Please contact me for more information.


I believe that there is a real power in telling our experiences, thoughts and feelings to another person. For me, it is an honor to be present with another human being and bear witness, without judgement, to his or her life story, no matter how much struggle or trauma that story may contain.
