My approach to psychotherapy draws mainly from psychoanalytic (also known as psychodynamic) psychotherapy.
Hello, I offer psychotherapy and medication management for adults in Oregon. Presently, I am offering both telemedicine visits and in person visits. My preferred approach to working with you is to get a good sense of who you are, how difficulties started, and how you can find solutions for yourself. When I prescribe medication we will talk about the options in detail and then help you decide what makes most sense.

Because of my interest in psychoanalysis, I have decided to pursue additional psychotherapy training, and I am currently a candidate in the Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program at the Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute.
The foundation of my practice is a thoughtful, integrated treatment approach that centers around psychodynamic psychotherapy. For adolescents and adults, I offer a more intensive form of psychodynamic psychotherapy, known as psychoanalytic psychotherapy, for those interested in a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. I also work with children and their parents, and I provide psychodynamically informed play therapy for children who need help expressing, working through, and mastering difficult feelings. I am board certified in both general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry.

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.
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

In addition to an internship at The Menninger School of Psychiatry and residency at Harbor-UCLA, I have completed formal training in psychoanalysis at the Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute.
Many successful people live with an inner torment, saying to themselves, "If I only had someone to talk to", but they are afraid to seek help. It feels overwhelming and shameful. In fact, my patients often feel better after just one session, because I listen in a way that respects their autonomy and their own perspective. Together we strive to understand the problems in a truly nonjudgmental way.

I am a board certified psychiatrist and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist offering help to those struggling with mood disorders, anxiety, trauma or relational issues. I find I can help patients by identifying some of the causes of their suffering. We can then work on these issues through therapy, use of medication if necessary, as well as by learning the resources the patient has within and by learning how they can best get support.

I am a board-certified psychiatrist specializing in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I work with adults suffering from depression, anxiety, relationship problems, effects of trauma, difficulties in work or school, feelings of emptiness, and other forms of psychological pain. Psychoanalytic therapy is an intensive, exploratory process. I aim to provide a context in which to explore deeply personal aspects of your private mental life, and to work together to better understand who you are and the difficulties with which you struggle. Through this process, I hope to help you to live more fully and fulfillingly.

My areas of expertise include Mind Body Medicine and the psychodynamic treatment of anxiety spectrum disorders, depression, trauma, and issues relating to body image and obesity. I teach and speak extensively on how the physiologic mechanisms of the inflammatory process promotes the above disease states and how, through the utilization of psychoanalytic and mindfulness techniques, optimal change can be achieved. I utilize the combination of psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy and mindfulness heavily supported in the medical literature in my private practice. My faculty participation in the Contemplative Health Project has allowed me to study and participate in meditation and guided imagery internationally.

I am a general psychiatrist who treats adults and older teens suffering from anxiety, depression, and the effects of childhood or adult trauma via weekly psychodynamic psychotherapy and, if needed, medication management. In therapy we will seek to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment where you can come to know and understand yourself more fully through exploration of your current experience, memories, dreams, and more. In my experience, this understanding can provide healing and a way forward.

Psychiatrists are the only doctors who don't look inside the body to assess a problem. Think about it; all other doctors use imaging and labs to look inside a person’s body when making a diagnosis. That coupled with your symptoms is how they determine what the problem is. Unfortunately, mental health providers have learned that how a person feels is their only tool in assessing somebody. Because of this, psychiatrists often have no idea what’s causing the problem. This limits the treatment options to a prescribed “band-aid" that is used to reduce symptoms, instead of addressing the underlying cause of a problem.

I am a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst specializing in psychotherapy for emotional challenges that interfere with living fully. My focus is on working to understand the dynamic forces within ourselves which contribute to these limitations. Medication can sometimes be a useful adjunct, but I do not emphasize it.

Patients come to me with a variety of different issues, from addiction to depression, anxiety to ADHD, and many others. My initial goal is to listen to your current circumstances carefully and then discuss multiple treatment options. These options usually include gold-standard treatments like talk therapy and medications, but may also include newer treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or ketamine. Together, we will explore all of these different options and create a treatment plan together that reflects your goals and preferences.

Every individual comes to therapy with a need to be deeply understood. We all experience longing. We suffer, celebrate and grapple with psychological pain. There are areas of our life that lack liveliness or vitality. We struggle in ways that are deeply private and that may not be fully known even to ourselves. I strive to help each person feel safe enough that such private feelings can emerge and be explored. Whether you are looking for help through a crisis or with long-standing psychological suffering, my hope is to understand who you are uniquely as an individual.

My mission is to provide treatment plans tailored to your needs, focused on options and solutions that give you the best chances to succeed. I am thorough and take time to understand major life stressors, environments and interpersonal relationships that contribute to your distress. The acuity I encountered working at a psychiatric hospital prepared me for private practice and led to my conservative approach to prescribing. I value patient feedback and include it in treatment decisions. My practice focus is medication management and for those patients I offer therapy. My blended therapeutic approach includes elements from many modalities.
