Practicing and learning new ways of thinking, reacting, and understanding are possible within the safety of a therapy relationship in which old beliefs are challenged and new ones are tested. Practicing new behaviors is easier when you understand why you needed the old one and feel ready to try the new. I am interactive and respectful of each person's uniqueness. Psychotherapy can be a deeply moving experience as well as transformative, and I can help you address and transform the inner beliefs and interpersonal difficulties that sabotage your success in love, friendship, and work. Years of experience have seasoned me as a clinician.

We are now in a communal health crisis together. It exacerbates feelings of anxiety and depression that we may have, and can make us spin as we try to adjust to Pandemic reality. Many of my clients are parents, people with career questions, immigrants, social justice workers. Many are either coping with a current situational issue that is confusing, overwhelming, or painful, or with a longer term pattern that they would like to change. I work in an engaged manner, hoping to build trust and a collaborative relationship that will allow you to look at old patterns and create new emotional and behavioral options, especially now.

It's not always easy to be a person. My job as a therapist is helping you figure out what works for you. I'm particularly good with clients who feel they don't fit the mold of societal expectations. I enjoy working with people who may be cautious about psychotherapy. My areas of expertise include relationship issues; depression and anxiety; chronic illness and disability; the impact of illness on couples and families.

There is so much pressure about who we should be. Sometimes we have to hide parts of ourselves to fit in. And we lose touch with who we truly are and what makes us feel alive. This disconnection to our truth can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or not good enough. Are you longing to feel accepted for who you are? Therapy is a non-judgmental space for you to explore what matters most to you. I can support you in healing old wounds and transforming patterns that lead to feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or drained. I offer approaches for holistically healing and connecting the mind, body, heart, and spirit.

I believe that the most important trait that leads to a successful outcome is motivation to learn about oneself. This is the essence of desire- or willingness- to change. I am trained as a psycho-analyst, and try to apply the essential understanding of people that psycho-analytic theory and practice, even when- as is usually the case- the psycho-analtyic method is not indicated, for reasons of time, money, and/or practicality. I work with all kinds of people, but feel that the common denominator is a strong motivation to examine oneself honestly and forthrightly, and to interact emotionally.

We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss. Re-igniting our inner-fire and natural emotional balance can understandably be a challenge. Trauma-informed somatic psychotherapy can help! I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client On their journey, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore balance between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire.

Children can encounter many stressors, and when a life transition or other challenging behavior are present, the family can find themselves overwhelmed and in need of support. I work with children & teens, ages 7 - 18, from a diversity of backgrounds. With nearly 10 years of experience working closely with children and parents, I'm familiar with a variety of presenting needs that can arise. My first step with each child, is to listen so that they feel understood, heard, and supported.

My approach to therapy is insight- and depth-oriented. I am interested in not just symptoms, but the underlying causes of behavior. I want to know not just what but why- why you may be feeling down, or anxious, or have difficulty connecting with others. I have found that, with this knowledge, comes the capacity for healing and change.

I work with clients to treat anxiety disorders, depression, and bipolar disorders, as well as increase their ability to regulate emotions and replace impulsive behaviors with effective ones. I also help clients to identify their own intrinsic strengths and values. The effect is an ongoing flow of positive experiences, which help to build confidence, boost self-respect, and improve interpersonal relationships. I offer clients positive regard, non-judgmental stance, and a compassionate environment, where they can feel safe expressing their experiences, thoughts and feelings.

Some people struggle for weeks, months, or even years before considering psychotherapy. And it makes sense — it's hard to confide in a stranger and can take a while to find the right fit. We want authenticity and experience in a therapist but also someone relatable and easy to talk with. When couples counseling, family therapy, or child/adolescent support is needed, the search may seem even more daunting. We need a clinician with the interpersonal skills, temperament, and adaptability to forge a meaningful connection with our partners, children, and the networks who support them.

We find unique healing in your own path for change, expansion, and self assurance. My best source is your own psychology. We find the tools within you for our work. We will seek clarification for yourself and understanding of others. Good psychotherapy provides not only a safe haven to relieve anxiety, depression, or any psychological pain, but also provides tools for your continuing growth. We add the richness of Jung to insights from psychoanalytically based psychotherapy. Also note that I have an additional practice in support of conscious dying.

I am interactive and direct and use the therapy relationship to understand dynamics that may not be visible to my client.
