Welcome! I'm glad you're here.
We all struggle and we all have a need to tell our story. Every part of your history, the decisions you make, the relationships you engage in are infused with unconscious elements. We’re all guided by these powerful forces in our lives. Psychotherapy is a process of mutual discovery; of putting feelings and experiences into words and understanding why you do what you do.
I’m a licensed therapist with extensive training and a decade of experience helping individuals from a variety of backgrounds. I specialize in the challenges posed by a difficult childhood – the resulting trauma, relationship instability and personality disorders.
My approach to therapy tends to be direct and insightful. I help you to understand and challenge entrenched dynamics that may be holding you (or your relationship) back. I do so with warmth, empathy, humor and a deep respect for your history.
In my practice, I offer individual therapy, therapy for couples and families, and more intensive treatment, including psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is an intensive kind of therapy and involves a deeper focus on unconscious material, as well as on the relationship with the therapist as it evolves over time. Psychoanalysis involves meeting 2-4 times weekly; if you have interest in this way of working I may have sliding scale openings, if needed.
I encourage you to reach out to me or schedule your first appointment. We can make arrangements to meet in person or virtually. *Please note I don’t accept any health insurance plans. I’m glad to provide you with receipts to submit for any reimbursement available.*
I look forward to hearing from you!
