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.
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 people feel the psychoanalysis must be out-dated without realizing there is a vital contemporary continuation of the classic ideas since the days of Freud.
Despite all the different forms of treatment claiming to be "psychotherapy", I have found over and over again that the basic idea of listening with respect and curiosity provides the deepest understanding of our problems. It is this deeper understanding which leads to real relief, lasting change and growth. I provide medication management for my patients.
