About

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy adheres to a case-by-case perspective. Namely, to the assumption that every individual is unique and requires a different course of treatment. The basic working hypothesis is that every analysis is different in its content, in its trajectory, in its frequency and duration. Through the act of free association one speaks freely about anything that comes to mind and engages the issues brought up in depth. The trajectory of treatment is directed by the speech of free association, along with the analyst's interpretations, toward the singular truth of one's symptoms and their subsequent alleviation.
I am a credentialed mental health nurse with extensive training in Lacanian psychoanalysis, which informs my practice as a psychotherapist. I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy to individuals and families from early-adolescence onwards in the lifespan. I also provide individual and group clinical supervision and secondary consultation.
Reach out via phone or email if you have any enquiries about engaging with my services. I currently offer face to face sessions, telehealth and over-the-phone consultation.
