You will learn practical skills to manage your emotions, face your fears and thrive in new circumstances.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by the changes happening in your life? A new job or no job, a new relationship or no relationship, a new living situation or life milestone? Do you notice yourself constantly worrying about the future but feel unable to make decisions in the present? Do you feel like you are just going through the motions getting through the day with no time or desire to focus on yourself or connect with people you care about? Stressed. Out of balance. Stuck.

I work (remotely now) with individuals and couples on issues around self-esteem, depression, anxiety and interpersonal conflicts. I listen and pay careful attention to each person's story, which includes the difficulties as well as the strivings, and to the subtext which is often not yet articulated or clear to the patient. In creating a warm and comfortable environment together we can understand and define the personal meanings of the conflicts and the emotional and behavioral patterns that have been obstacles to having a better life. As a professional violinist I also work with creative artists and their struggles.

Therapy can be a space to expand your sense of yourself. While a specific problem may bring you to therapy, I believe that my patients are often helped by gaining insight into (and ultimately, mastery over) long-standing patterns in their relationships, feelings, or behaviors. This approach helps to create lasting change. I work with children, adolescents, and adults who have a variety of concerns, some of which include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, life transitions, or a vague sense of being disconnected from oneself. I am LGBTQ-affirming and have experience working with LGBTQ and gender-expansive individuals.

More specific concerns about lifestyles, and transitions in life, include such things as working on intimate relationships, marriage, starting/blending families, divorce, mid-life crises, health issues, addictions, and concerns of non-traditional lifestyles for artists or gays and lesbians. My approach is eclectic, and includes both cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic techniques. I combine a warm, empathic, positive approach with a careful scrutiny of the issues, often challenging old ideas.

I work with clients of all ages and backgrounds, specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, body image, self-esteem, and those in the LGBTQ+ community, of which I am a part of.
Psychotherapy is the process of connection. Through it, we learn how to deeply connect with ourselves - how we feel, what we need, and who we truly are. We connect with our past, from the big painful events that still sting, to the small foggy memories we almost forgot we had. And all the while, we connect with each other.

In addition to addressing anxiety, depression, relational problems and a host of other psychological issues, psychotherapy offers a means for deepening insight into motivations and the workings of the mind.
I believe that meaningful transformation is possible through the therapeutic process, and I am committed to helping you address the issues and conflicts which undermine your ability to achieve happiness and satisfaction. I have several years experience working with adults in a variety of settings (VA and private hospitals, university clinics and psychoanalytic institutes). My orientation is primarily psychoanalytic/psychodynamic, although I employ other approaches, such as mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, and self psychology interventions, where appropriate. I also believe that understanding the role of culture, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation is a vital part of treatment.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
