These days, we're all huddling under COVID's shadow of uncertainty. You may be feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and less tolerant than 'before'. You didn't used to feel so disorganized, disoriented, and discouraged in pre-virus days. Perhaps some symptom you'd forgotten about or pushed aside feels newly offensive. I am a psychoanalytic therapist and my ideal client is ready, curious, persistent, possibly angry, sad, and frightened, but willing to wonder with me about the mind's mysteries and its capacities to tilt, stymie, support, inspire, and surprise you. Is the unconscious friend or foe? Might now be a time to investigate?

People can get stuck in painful emotional states and relationship patterns, for all kinds of reasons. I help people with chronic emotional pain, depression, anxiety, and the aftereffects of trauma and abuse. I focus on helping people work through sources of pain, and build their capacities for a satisfying life. In couples counseling, I help partners hear and understand each other in new ways, and create the space they need to thrive as both individuals and as partners in a relationship.

We all have an image of our best self. This is the person we'd be if we just weren't so tired, so anxious, so angry or so depressed. I think about my work as the process of helping people to become who they already know they are - or could be. Our work together is to find out why you feel those things in the first place so you can move past them and start feeling happier, more productive and more connected to the life you want.

I believe that individuals and couples seek counseling and therapy for one primary reason: a desire for something to be different in their lives. Thus, I focus on helping people (1) identify differences they are seeking in their lives and relationships and then (2) developing the skills and internal capacities to make these differences a reality. For some, this involves changing ineffective behavior patterns; for others, it means treatment for depression, anxiety or other emotional/psychological blocks that hamper living a full and engaged life. What do you want to be different for yourself in your life?

I believe a commitment to therapy is a commitment to oneself. It is very powerful to commit to grow and change in ways that increase a sense of personal satisfaction with one's life. I work with individuals who want to resolve issues of unrest, dissatisfaction or distress that recur in their lives. I believe as clients learn to increase their trust in themselves they can better trust others and better direct their lives.This work involves coming to a better understanding of the influence of past experiences, as well as present influences, and may include exploring deeper spiritual isssues.

We are learning that T/trauma is at the root a majority of suffering. With this, the possibility for healing, freedom, growth grows. Seeking support is the most courageous and resilient action you can take. The stigma about "therapy" being for people that are somehow "weak" or "broken" is rapidly falling apart in light of the truth that weakness and brokenness more often stem from the choice to not seek support. The myths and stigmas surrounding healing ("therapy") are rapidly deteriorating as many come to see that a more joyful life is possible.

Since the pandemic hit I have shifted to exclusively online video and phone therapy sessions and I find that these modalities work really well. I can help youth in adolescence up to elder-aged adults do the hard work necessary. I intend to be a witness and a companion while listening to you and your story. I am fascinated by the experience of severe anxiety and have had success treating it. I have a lot of experience to bring to bear particularly on the experience of US Military veterans who have been through war and combat trauma. I am especially interested in working with veterans with military sexual trauma.

As a board-certified psychoanalyst social worker, I help individuals work through depression and anxiety, traumas, personality disorders, and general problems in living. The conflicts or stuck feelings that bring a person to therapy tell us about internal experiences that need to be acknowledged and understood. Our problems are often the result of patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that can be addressed in therapy.

People often come to therapy struggling with a particular feeling, relationship, or question that they can't seem to escape no matter what they do. Why? Research shows us that our struggles are typically about far more than they appear on the surface. Often the problems of our present are deeply rooted in our pasts and the lessons we learned from our families, cultures, and formative experiences. Yet, many are unaware of the learned assumptions that govern their lives, even when they get in their way.

It can be difficult to start therapy, especially during this unprecedented pandemic. Often coupled with a desire for change can be confusion, frustration, or feeling stuck, with little idea what to do next. Whatever your reasons, this is an honest place to be, and making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. It can help to speak with someone that can gently guide you. I provide a space that is warm and compassionate, where you are accepted as you are. I view therapy as a space to become more aware of yourself, your relationships, and your life experience.
