I work with patients individually and have been inspired to witness personal transformation and growth even after the most difficult life circumstances. My practice includes longer term psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, short-term consultation, and supervision of mental health professionals of all disciplines. Although my approach is primarily psychodynamic, I believe it is important to maintain an integrated treatment perspective because every person is unique. Particular areas of interest include the impact and psychological cost of keeping family secrets, personal growth over the adult life cycle, building resiliency, privacy

My treatment focus is primarily talk therapy that emphasizes an individual's capacity to grow and develop over one's entire life. I have found that in 40 years of practice that a safe place where one can feel, express, and work on painful issues promotes resilience and wellbeing.

My affiliations include Clinical Professor, Psychiatry, Oregon Health and Science University; Training and Supervising Analyst, Oregon Psychoanalytic Center; Faculty, Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles; author of 4 books and 150 papers, chapters, and reviews; speaker at national and international meetings.
