"A decision to consider psychotherapy suggests you are experiencing difficulties in life which you hope a professional can help with. Perhaps you have noticed some repeating patterns that get in the way of love or work but do not understand why. I have practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for more than thirty years. I work individually with adults and adolescents and have additional training in couples therapy. My style is responsive and interactive. I ascribe to the value of firm therapist-patient boundaries.

"I have a profound respect for people who come to therapy since it is truly difficult to ask for help and try to find relief from suffering. Often life is not easy. I work to help people identify and bear their feelings, find solutions, explore less known parts of themselves, and expand their capacity for living more fully. Feelings of depression, anger, loneliness, anxiety, or being stuck can be understood and the burden eased. I believe that our experiences growing up significantly influence how we see ourselves and others, and that these patterns can be understood and altered."
