Your attempts to live a life closer to the essence of who you are, to find the heart and soul of yourself is a quest I too am on. Realizing that in our attempts to ward off pain our familiar self became a walled-in fortress, we seek a way out and a way forward to who we really are. My own search for reconnection to the spirit of my life has taken the form of being a psychotherapist to those trapped in that fortress and, as a result, feeling more and more unreal.

I help people access their inner healing resources to live more productive and fulfilling lives. I work from the perspective that we all encounter struggles from time to time and in harnessing one's inner resources we can learn how to thrive in hard times and prevent further suffering. In my work with children, teens and adults I help identify effective coping strategies and stress management skills to improve wellbeing. My clients typically struggle with psychological, emotional, and spiritual challenges, including low mood, excess worry, difficulty with focus or attention, relationship and school or work issues.

I am experienced in treating both adults and children with the use of Psychoanalytic methods. I use the object relations approaches of Klein, Winnicott and Bion. In child therapy, I engage children on a deep level through play, dreams, art and conversation. With adults, I use free association, night and day dreams. My object is to expose patients to their primitive, deep anxieties allowing them to work through their troubled minds, facilitating internal growth and development, and positive social interactions. I also work with mothers and babies having bonding difficulties. My practice is busy so use email for best results.
