Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, MS, RN, APRN, BC

Times of change and uncertainty can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from ourselves and others. Anxiety, depression and stress reactions can become common experiences. Psychotherapy offers opportunities to increase your understanding of why and how this happens as well as what to do about it. I work within an interpersonal and analytic perspective while incorporating the well known benefits of mindulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This combination creates curiosity, self-discovery and change. My style is warm, collaborative and flexible. You will find me actively involved rather than silent or distant.

In my work with individuals with chronic medical, psychiatric, pain and substance disorders I have come to truly appreciate how very individual and uniquely these manifest in the suffering patient. In the experience of of the one afflicted, their disorder is as distinct as the sufferer him or herself. As no two persons or illnesses could possibly be alike, neither should their most effective prescribed treatments be expected to be.

Every patient seeking psychotherapy must contend with the irony that despite sincere efforts at self-knowledge, he or she feels helpless, frustrated and demoralized. Psychoanalysis is intended to repair and restore a full capacity for living and, with thirty years of experience, I can assert that this is exactly what it possible. Each patient needs to feel deeply supported and understood for it is out of such a genuine encounter with the analyst and with himself/herself that new self knowledge and a renewed optimism about life arises.
