I believe that psychotherapy is a collaborative process that is tailored to fit the patient's--whether adult, child or adolescent--needs. The process of change and development occurs optimally in the context of an empathic therapeutic alliance. My areas of specialization include depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, identity confusion and problems of unfulfilled development. I believe that effective treatment involves a process in which doctor and patient work together both to understand current problematic patterns and to facilitate new ways of being and relating.
I provide individual, couple and group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My approach is aimed at strengthening the self and removing interferences to interpersonal relationships, both personally and professionally.
I have a subspecialty in child and adolescent psychology and psychoanalysis, therefore I bring this understanding to work with adults, since many personal problems have their origin in childhood. I am board certified in 3 areas: Adult, Child/Adolescent and Group Treatment
