Our efforts to protect ourselves from painful feelings often lead to greater suffering. Fleeing from our emotional truth, we unconsciously perpetuate the very distress we seek to avoid, repeating unhealthy relationships or self-destructive patterns of living. We may find ourselves overwhelmed by anxiety, anger, despair or emptiness, feeling like our lives are not our own. It takes courage to explore our feeling-life and face the emotional truth of our past and present. I offer a safe, reliable and uniquely human environment in which to cultivate future possibilities of integration, spontaneity, creativity and self-realization, to fully inhabit life.

Effective psychodynamic practice requires the compassion and insight that comes only from personal experience. I bring the fruit of 22 years of personal psychotherapy, including 14 years of psychodynamic group work, and a quarter-century of study to a practice grounded in the psychodynamic (psychoanalytic) and existential (Daseinsanalytic) traditions.
