About

I believe that insecure relationships (of many forms!) are the root of most suffering. As a result, my work is focused on those who wish to improve their relational lives. This includes single people who aspire to having a romantic relationship, but who seem to encounter difficulties in securing one; those who are already in a romantic relationship, but are facing challenges; people contending with struggles with friends or family; or people who aren't so sure about how they relate to, well, themselves. I also work with those who aren't even necessarily sure what has them down or anxious, but who hope to learn and to get unstuck!
Together, we'll explore the origins of the conflict(s) you're experiencing as we look at your early, formative relationships; your thinking patterns and assumptions about yourself and others; your relational behaviors; and the stories you tell yourself (or neglect to tell yourself!) which have contributed to your sense of self.
My style is warm, engaged, and collaborative. I strive to offer you a relationship in which you can not only receive nonjudgmental listening and insight, but also real, pragmatic help. While I adapt my approach to your particular needs, my foundation is psychoanalytic psychotherapy; a two-year post-graduate training has significantly informed my thinking.
