I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience and a post-doctorate degree in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis from New York University. Psychotherapy can help to create or restore a sense of balance between your needs and the demands of others. Treatment goals are tailored to your priorities, but often include enhancing one's self-confidence, clarifying optimal choices in complex situations, and fostering one's ability to live more fully and vitally.
I specialize in the psychotherapy and psychoanalysis of mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties and other related psychological dysfunction. Fear, despair, self-sabotaging beliefs and destructive behaviors can be transformed into opportunities for personal growth by expanding possibilities for yourself, being more authentic and building more fulfilling personal relationships.
When you are ready for deep and lasting change in your life, meeting with several therapists can help to refine not only what issues you want to work on, but also to discover which professional relationship has the potential for trust and innovation. Contact me for a consultation or reference.
