About

I believe all people desire peace of mind and contentment. I have helped people with emotional struggles for over 25 years, empowering them to attain greater acceptance and compassion for oneself as well as the people in their life and family. I take a mindful approach to therapy which encourages peace of mind and an appreciation for one's own uniqueness and strength. By listening to a patient's life story from a compassionate, non-judgmental stance, I have witnessed the development of strength, confidence, and courage necessary to gracefully weather the storms that are an inevitable part of life.
I work from a psychoanalytic model and view this as a very helpful orientation for understanding human concerns, difficulties and desires. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy also promotes the ability to live a vital and fulfilling life, with understanding, compassion and an ability to feel at peace with the world.
I help both individuals and couples attain satisfying relationships and contentment. I have also worked extensively with gay and lesbian patients, in various phases of their acceptance, openness and capacity to live a full life with a true appreciation of who they are and the relationships in their lives.
