I am a psychoanalytic therapist who works with repetitive relationship problems, anxiety, panic disorders, long-term depression and men's issues. These often show up as poor self-esteem, feelings of loneliness and disconnection, false-self, obsessions and addictions, and unexplained physical symptoms. Sometimes people feel that something isn't right, but they aren't sure what. When friends, family and self-help aren't enough, I take the time to get to know you and listen for what repeats itself in your thoughts and actions.

Are you feeling stuck? Hopeless? Unsure where to turn? We have all been there. I believe therapy provides safety, hope, understanding, and a way forward. I'm committed to creating a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space for my clients. I know from experience that holding onto hope for meaningful change, even when clients can't hold onto that hope for themselves, is one of the most powerful things I can offer.

Do you desire to move forward but don’t understand what may be holding you back? Are you seeking a supportive partner in your healing process? What is important to you when working with a therapist? I follow the notion that the relationship is one of the most important aspects of the healing process and utilize it as one of the main tools in the work with my clients. Whether it is processing trauma, exploring anxiety or depression, addressing relationship issues, or getting through a transitional phase of life, among many other reasons, sometimes therapy with a strong therapeutic relationship as a foundation can make a difference.

My style is loving, non-judgmental, and creative. My role is to help empower you to change. I do this by uncovering unconscious mechanisms that drive your current issues. Unconscious material comes into focus by our discussing your past relationships and life events. You will take an active role in therapy by looking inward. As your therapist I will assist you by promoting honesty, self-compassion, and self-acceptance in order for you to connect with your authentic self to come into your natural state of well-being.

If you identify as Poly/Non-monogamous, Kinky/fetishistic, Queer/Trans, or Anti-capitalist you already know the tyrannical way normativity polices “others” who deviate from conventional cultural scripts. Even more so when your preferred expressions of intimacy and embodiment are deemed “problematic”. I do not equate “healthy” with “normal”, nor aim to be prescriptive about how you “ought“ to experience being in this world. Living along the fringes of normativity isn’t an easy choice. But it can be a worthy choice, fulfilling and purposeful! Yet it may also be accompanied by high costs that feel compromising to dignity & self-worth.

I believe the most effective therapy begins in a trusting and judgment-free zone — a space where you feel safe being honest with yourself about your values, needs, and desires. Together we will explore your struggles, fears, and feelings of being "stuck." I am here to help you discover alternative ways of existing that feel in alignment to your true Self, whether this looks like improving your relationships, increasing intimacy, developing better communication skills, or setting healthy boundaries. You are not alone in this process. Together, we can identify how to use your uniqueness and strengths to achieve your goals.

I believe our destiny is not created by our history. Far too often we let the script of our past taint the next chapter of our life. Are the chains of grief, trauma, addiction, abuse, betrayal, sadness, fear, anger or self-hatred holding you back? I am curious…… What sparkling moments in your life have you forgotten about? What would life look like if you broke free and left all of the labels behind - even just for a moment? Is there a possibility you could awaken from a nightmare and begin to dream differently? What if the rebirth of creativity was possible? What if hope was renewed and slowly a new story began to form?

At times, we all need help with everyday challenges -and even more so when problems show up. It is difficult to reach out for help. Especially in a culture that emphasizes self-reliance and independence. Problems (such as depression or anxiety) can disconnect us from the relationships that might help us to heal. Since 2016, I have worked with individuals, couples, & families to manage the problems they are facing and help re-connect them to significant relationships. I have helped others with relationship challenges, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and addiction.
