I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to effective therapy. Using an approach built on empathy, openness, and warmth, I provide an environment where you can say anything that comes to mind and be yourself more fully and authentically. When we have our experiences heard and validated by another, it enhances our understanding and acceptance of ourselves. Working from a psychodynamic framework, I believe it is important to learn about our early life experiences and how that impacts our current emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

Finding a therapist with whom you have a good fit can be a daunting task, especially when you are experiencing painful emotions and major life changes. I strive to create an environment where you can feel safe to express your most intimate thoughts and feelings. I believe psychoanalytic therapy and psychoanalysis can lead to deep and lasting change, and can help you resolve a wide range of issues. Learning more about yourself and how your past impacts your present can have many benefits, including more satisfying personal relationships, greater acceptance of yourself, relief from distress, and a richer experience of life.

As you search for the right therapist, I recommend looking for certain essential qualities: Close and empathic listening - do you feel heard? Seasoned knowledge and technique - do you feel understood and responded to helpfully? A good "fit" - do you feel comfortable with this person? It is impossible to discern these qualities from a profile alone. You may need to allow yourself a couple of sessions with more than one therapist before deciding. It takes time to know, but there's a lot at stake and much to gain.

No matter your past or present, your haves or have nots, life can be difficult. I believe that people want and need to be understood – to feel validated and acknowledged in the midst of their troubles. Without these moments of understanding, life can feel mundane, lonely, or deeply confusing. At the most troubling times when stress, depression, or relationships overwhelm, change can seem impossible. Yet change is made possible through a trusting therapeutic relationship, and a careful understanding of oneself and others.

Being "sane" in this world might be crazy. If you’re looking for a therapist who will not pathologize you or talk down to you, we might be a good fit. Whether or not you are dealing with extra baggage like anxiety, depression or relationship problems, you are bound to feel overwhelmed right now. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t doing ok, or even thriving, in other areas of your life. I get that. I also get that thriving in some areas of life doesn't mean you aren't really, deeply struggling in other areas. You can look completely put together, but not feel that way at all some of the time.
