I work with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds, those struggling with anxiety, depression, those feeling "stuck", creative blocks , work-related problems,relationship conflicts, grief, and aging issues.
I see psychotherapy as helping individuals reach beyond problem solving to a deeper contact with their embodied self and imagination. My psychoanalytic training informs my knowledge of the effects of the past on present living. I believe that intellectual insight must include embodied experience to generate change. My training in Somatic Experiencing and Embodied Imagination (a form of dreamwork) augment my psychoanalytic understanding while opening up access to unknown aspects of self. My years of working as a therapist however,have confirmed my belief that any psychic change occurs within a therapeutic relationship of trust, respect, safety and compassion.

Life's challenges are many and COVID 19 has created a monumental shift in how we live and how we think about what it means to be human. It has put a different perspective on existing challenges while at the same time creating new ones. Facing such challenges in a supportive relationship can make a difference during these times of heightened anxiety. This type of self-examination takes courage and trust, and I feel privileged when asked to accompany someone on their journey. The success of this type of work lies in the relationship itself.

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.

For over thirty years, as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, I have helped adults, adolescents and couples to solve problems of living. My experience has given me a deep respect for the process of psychodynamic psychotherapy and its ability to help people lead more satisfying lives. Often, people seek therapy when they are feeling stuck in work or relationships or when they are experiencing depression, anxiety, pain or other somatic and emotional stresses. Therapy helps them replace ineffective or destructive patterns, leading to a much fuller range of life choices as well as deeper, richer emotional connections to other people.

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.
