***ONLINE SESSION AVAILABLE***Have you found yourself making changes to your life, such as a job change, a new partner, weight loss, or move to a new city, and you feel disconnected? Do you find yourself asking questions, "Why haven't things changed? What is wrong with me? Will I ever find happiness?" In many cases, the external changes are not enough. Many times what is needed is a change within ourselves. With creating inner changes we are able to find healing, joy, and peace within ourselves, so that the external change can be fully enjoyed.

You are not a problem to be solved. I believe we are each evolutionarily designed for growth and change. In the right container and supportive environment, you have the potential to understand yourself better than anyone else, to access your own insight, and to know what will help. My role as a therapist is to be a fellow traveler in the room as you navigate the session. I can point out moments of interest, places of frozenness, and potentially useful signs, and support your own innate creativity in meeting the story of your life.

Often life throws things at us that we have little control over: a pandemic, loss of a loved one, an abusive childhood, oppression, a disability, and the like. All of these can cause pain and hardship and left untended, can compound or prolong our suffering and even become debilitating. We can't avoid pain but luckily we come pre-equipped with the tools we need to live meaningfully in spite of the pain we experience so we can avoid unnecessary suffering. Therapy can help us reclaim those tools, navigate life's challenges, and manage our pain so we can be more free to focus on the things that bring us joy and contentment.

As a board certified training and supervising psychoanalyst my expertise is in helping individuals identify and change the thoughts and feelings about themselves that cause depression, fear, and low self-esteem and to discover and modify the patterns of relating to others that cause anxiety, alienation, and separateness. In therapy we work to create experiences that liberate thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from the ideas and ways of being and behaving that inhibit their free and creative expression. Treatment aims at increasing one's effectiveness in dealing with life's problems and in achieving one's goals.

Therapy is a partnership that grows in an atmosphere of safety and acceptance. It allows us to rediscover the parts of ourselves we had to disown as children in order to keep our caregivers close; to learn new skills to handle grief and distress; to build healthier, more nurturing relationships; and to gain access to our own direct experience of the world, perhaps for the first time. I nurture this collaboration with clients by recognizing that each individual possesses the wisdom he or she needs, as well as the innate capacity to love, to connect, and to thrive.

Whether concerns manifest as self-hatred, shame, relational difficulties, regret, spirituality, depression, anxiety, or other ways altogether, I wholeheartedly believe that there is more to the story than meets the eye. I create an honest, gentle, and trustworthy space for exploring clients' internal worlds. Consistently, I find that as we invite painful feelings and thoughts out of isolation and into a dialogue between two minds, powerfully new and unexpected realities emerge.
