Psychotherapy, as I define it to my patients and students, is the collaborative inquiry between patient and therapist into the patient's patterns of interaction and patterns of expection. This kind of study leads to greater personal and interpersonal freedom, which allows for the reduction or the elimination of symptoms. Psychotherapy can be of brief duration or an extended enterprise focusing on long term difficulties. The decision on which form of psychotherapy to undertake is usually based on an evaluation of 1 to 3 sessions, where a treatment plan is developed. I am interactive in my approach.

I believe that parents and children both want what is best, although they differ in what that looks like. Both benefit from a new perspective on their actions and motivations so that they can achieve greater understanding and compromise. My particular strength is connecting with someone's experience and perspective. I believe that in moments of pain and suffering we all need to feel that we are not alone and that things can be different. My role as their therapist is to be a companion wherever they take me, while honoring the very real obligations that they answer to.

CURRENTLY: I am accepting new teletherapy patients. These sessions are reimbursable at the same rate as in-person therapy. As a psychologist and psychoanalyst, I aim to help patients understand the trouble in their lives and make significant changes. I believe it is important to take the time to get to know patients' stories. My approach is both collaborative and challenging. Sometimes this involves helping people look at parts of themselves that are painful, or hard to see clearly. Many patients benefit from long-term, intensive therapy, while others find that shorter-term therapy helps them solve immediate problems.
