I offer psychoanalysis and psychotherapy and I do not prescribe medication. Together, we focus on understanding your symptoms and mastering your upsetting impulses, conflicts, and relationships. You will learn to modify the way that early relationships affect current relationships. You’ll make links between your thoughts, feelings, and experiences now and in the past, decode your dreams, recognize your ways of protecting yourself, and acknowledge how you have been held back so you can then move forward in career, friendship, and love.
Certified in psychoanalysis for children and adults, I am internationally well-known for psychoanalysis/psychoanalytic psychotherapy with couples and families, individual adults and children. Author, editor, and teacher, I give supervision and consultation for therapists. I offer psychoanalysis, assessment, consultation, and therapy: no medications.
I provide an atmosphere of privacy, safety, and acceptance. You will be free to say whatever is on your mind, eventually including things that you had hidden even from yourself. Together we will face your anxiety and depression and find alternative ways of dealing with them, which frees your energy for creative work, friendships, and pleasure in intimacy.
