If you’re struggling with a challenging situation in your life, it can feel overwhelming—but it doesn’t have to be that way. You deserve to experience happiness, confidence and inner peace. I treat adolescents and adults struggling with depression, stress and anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, PTSD, relationship concerns, and attachment issues. I also provide couples counseling, family therapy and parenting support. My approach involves psychodynamic psychotherapy and relational therapy. I also introduce some cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).
One of my specialties is trauma and PTSD therapy. Everyone defines trauma differently, be it a loss of a loved one, a failed marriage, a physical or sexual assault, or any event that has impacted your life. I believe that, whether the traumatic event occurred yesterday or 20 years ago, you don't have to suffer its negative effects indefinitely.
Life’s challenges don’t have to define you—or limit your potential to enjoy a fulfilling life and healthy relationships. Old patterns can be broken, making room for you to replace sadness with joy. With over 25 years of experience as a therapist, as well as training as a psychoanalyst, my goal is to help you heal, survive and thrive.
