Good therapy focuses on helping people overcome obstacles to living a productive and fulfilling life -- whether in relationships, work, or creative self-expression. As a psychotherapist in practice for 25+ years, my aim is to create an environment where patients can learn about themselves, grow, and, most important, change. My work has been guided by my social work background and psychoanalytic training, and has been deeply influenced by my connection to dance and the arts. I work with people of all ages and backgrounds who struggle with anxiety, depression, personality problems, bereavement, life-threatening illnesses, and family/relationship issues.

I firmly believe that we as human beings grow in relationships as an empathic and attuned other bears witness to our struggles; my role is to provide a safe environment and a skilled ear in which you are able to become better acquainted with yourself: your thinking, behavior, and feelings so that you can ultimately live a more fulfilled life. For some this means a few months of work and for others a few years.

When facing life's difficult challenges, it is good to know that there are places that you can turn to for help and guidance. However, finding a gay therapist can be anxiety producing because when people decide they would benefit from seeing a therapist, they are often experiencing significant upset in their lives. This is usually not the ideal moment to be dealing with the stress involved in finding someone with whom it feels safe and right to be vulnerable.
