2/8/2021- Hi there. At this time, we are limiting our operations to existing clients. If you’re a prospective client, feel free to submit your contact information so that we can let you know when we reopen this Spring. A few reasons our clients come to therapy: 1. "I'm tired all the time" 2. "I'm frustrated." 3. "My supervisor doesn’t know what he/she is doing!" 4. "I overthink everything." 5. "My partner does not listen to me.” There are many, many other reasons that people seek help. Please know that you are not alone. I cannot say it enough: You are not alone! We look forward to being helpful to you.

There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art.

Working together, we can find solutions to the problems or situations causing stress. I find that, for most of my clients, therapy is a short-term need. You can then use your new skills in similar situations that arise in the future. My goal is to have you leave therapy with a range of tools that work for you.
