I provide psychoanalytic psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Psychotherapy is a deeply personal and intimate undertaking that allows us to privately express, explore, and make sense of our lives and histories. I offer a style that is down-to-earth, thoughtful, practical, and collaborative. Because each person seeks out therapy for different reasons and brings a complex history, I tailor each treatment to meet your unique needs, goals, strengths, and preferences.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

Therapy doesn't have to be a mysterious and confusing process. I believe that it should be linked directly to one's personal goals and desire for change. I'll work with you to enhance your self-knowledge, expand your emotional awareness and thinking to provide you new ways of solving problems and enhancing well-being. My style is direct and collaborative and aims to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and relating that reinforce fears and negative attitudes, thereby limiting your ability to pursue your goals. Exploring the underlying forces and dynamics driving those patterns opens up new avenues for growth and change.

The first few decades of adulthood are an exciting time of self-discovery and building the life you want to live. But they can also be stressful and overwhelming.

Hi! I'm Deborah. I warmly invite you to share in the amazing possibilities that psychotherapy has to offer. Psychotherapy can be instrumental in recovery from challenges of mind and heart including: depression, anxiety, fear, mood swings, stress, low self-esteem, and life transitions. It can help you heal from victimization, violence, and trauma. It can make heartbreak understandable, tolerable and even growth-producing. It can provide the foundation for creating new healthier relationships based on respect, trust, healthy compromise, and compassion. It can take an ordinary life and make it extraordinarily rich and purposeful.

As a creative professional in the flow, it’s easy to take creativity, passion, and aliveness for granted. But what happens when anxiety, perfectionism, and self-doubt stop you in your tracks? Suddenly it’s hard to find your flow, you lose confidence, and the mounting pressure to get back on your feet only makes it worse. Whether your goal is to overcome creative blocks and burnout, sustain your energy while "in the spotlight", or strengthen your personal and professional boundaries, together we can develop the inner resources you need to lead a more embodied life.

If you've struggled with trauma or dissociation, you might feel very alone. When the world feels like too much & people can feel unsafe, it's hard to share what's inside. Especially if your inner world feels like too much too. On top of that, if it's chaotic, scary, or numb inside, figuring out who you are, what you want, & what's safe might get confusing. It's painful to feel alone, unsure what you need, & how to get it!
