"People seek therapy for wide-ranging and deeply personal reasons. The common theme among these is the desire to improve some aspect of your emotional health. Together, we will work to explore and alleviate those areas of your psychological life which cause distress or limit your happiness. The human condition is complex and rich with meaning at all levels; therefore, my goal is to understand each client as a "whole person," not limiting our work to merely symptom-reduction, but also enhancing self-knowledge and overall wellness to achieve a more balanced and satisfying state of being."

"In my practice I offer a welcoming setting and provide a safe space for your suffering or difficulties. When you speak about yourself to someone who is trained to listen and examine the circumstances that motivated your consultation, a change occurs. A psychoanalyst is a person trained to hear what is happening under the surface, and provides a place where you may speak and hear yourself differently. I have been working as a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist for 25 years and I have found that words can hurt, words can make people sick, but words can also save. Talking cures."

"I believe it takes courage to seek the right counselor; and, I know that the "right fit" can make a huge difference in an individual's, couple's, or family's life. I want to help identify and transform the painful cycles that keep us alone and turn them into positive cycles to provide us the longed-for connections. I believe that no one recovers alone, and that our relationship (all by itself) may not be enough to bring about the desired change thus I encourage all resources that might help: 12 Steps, DBT, Mindfulness, medication, Yoga, reading, etc."

"Because you will be putting a good deal of time, money, and energy into therapy, you should choose a therapist carefully. I believe you should feel comfortable with the therapist you choose, and hopeful about the therapy process. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to be helpful to you. I have more than 20 years helping people work through grief and loss, life transitions, relationship struggles, career indecision, anxiety and depression. In addition, I have considerable experience helping individuals struggling with issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity."

"Choosing to pursue therapy can be hard. Opening up and being vulnerable can be overwhelming. But I like to make therapy feel a lot less scary. I believe that therapy does not have to feel like work (at least not all of the time). I'll go as deep as you want to go, work as hard as you want to work, and if you are not ready to talk about something, I will wait until you are. You are in control of our sessions- I am just here to guide you in the right direction."

"In my work I utilize an integration of psychoanalytic, constructivist, and relational theory while employing a strong social justice, feminist, and queer theory lens. Enthusiastically practicing from a body-positive, sex-positive, and intersectional feminist perspective, I believe that one's past informs how they interact with and experience the world. Healing takes place as one fosters empathy and gentle consideration for their past and present selves. The therapeutic relationship allows for gaining deeper perspective and understanding of oneself. I strive to build genuine and earnest rapport with my clients by being deeply nonjudgmental and always practicing with respect."

Many often suffer because they are caught in old patterns of behaving and relating to others. I believe that healing comes from feeling acceptance, compassion, and forgiveness toward yourself.
