My practice focuses on helping people with anxiety, depression, and mood disorders, PTSD; individuation within the framework of psychodynamic psychotherapy. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents (18+), adults, couples, and people involved in the arts. Childhood experiences and relationships with one's family of origin influence an individual's personality and provides a template for future relationships. It can therefore be fruitful to understand via therapy that your family relationships are not destiny. I believe therapy is a psychological and spiritual journey, requiring empathy, patience, and validation of feelings.

I can prescribe medication, if necessary, as an adjunct to psychotherapy. I believe that psychotherapy can be healing and transformative. My theoretical grounding is psychodynamic and interpersonal. Keeping silent and shut down over the years can lead to a variety of painful issues - depression, anxiety, obsessions, physical ailments - which can often lead to difficulty functioning and conflicted relationships.
