"Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to reflect on the deeper dimensions of your experience, and to recognize your own unique callings in life. The goal in existential therapy is to experience greater freedom in making the choices that empower you to be the kind of person you most want to be. Psychological freedom is twofold: freedom from the unwarranted fears, anxieties and assorted forms of emotional distress that constrict our life engagements, and at the same time, a freedom to engage in the vital relationships, creative activities, and genuine responsibilities that characterize a meaningful and fulfilling life."

"We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships."

"EFFECTIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY .... ---involves more than someone giving you sage advice or counseling --- involves more than sitting and talking with a kind, patient and empathic professional --- involves more than simply identifying and changing negative thoughts and doubts --- involves more than feeling your hurt feelings and catharsis --- involves more than learning mindfulness or meditation --- does not occur in a few sessions. Effective psychotherapy integrates all these processes tailored to your life and provides you with TOOLS with which to make better decisions about your life, and manage and heal your emotional issues and traumas. ."

Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist.

In addition to treating addiction, I also treat anxiety, depression, isolation, hopelessness, and low self-esteem. These disorders and daily difficulties, I believe, stem from feeling lost in the world, from being hurt or traumatized by others in your life, and most of all, from feeling disconnected to your true authentic self and the world around you.
