I believe that good mental health is a product of treating the whole person. This approach often includes psychotherapy and sometimes medication, as well as mindfulness meditation, exercise, and a healthy diet. In my experience, a whole-person centered approach can decrease reliance on medications and help the patient achieve a sense of agency in their psychological wellness.

As a psychoanalyst my approach is grounded in a humble appreciation for how individuals work to create a way of life that is safe and enriching, based on an understanding that at times despite best efforts we can feel pain, sadness or anger or even wrestle with unwanted feelings or behaviors that we cannot quite name. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can be helpful in that it allows one to incorporate a view of the past that can shed light on present struggles.

I offer a holistic, personalized approach to obtain not only symptom management, but healing, which will enable you to live a vibrant, full color life. I employ a "whole person" approach during evaluations and sessions. Aside from gaining information about troublesome symptoms, I feel it is important to establish a narrative to determine how and when these symptoms originated and how they are currently impacting your life. I often work with patients who want to limit or taper off of psychiatric medications.
