We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

In my experience, things can start getting better fast, long before the problem is solved. Rated in the top 1% of psychotherapists on LinkedIn, I'm warm, practical, experienced & hard-working. I'll help you tackle problems related to trauma, difficult childhoods, bad bosses, relationships of all sorts that just don't work well, and the distress of having repeated disappointments in life. I'm interested in helping make real change, and not just developing interesting insights (although they can be useful too.)

I enjoy working with individuals who are struggling to become more authentic and present in their lives. Often, they have been marginalized for being "different" from those around them, causing them to deny parts of themselves to "fit in." Many of my clients have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual traumas that caused deep wounds and profound losses. Most find their way to my office after years spent trying to ignore, numb, or avoid the inevitable pain associated with their psychological and emotional wounds. Some also seek my help after more recent disruptions in their lives, such as divorce or immigration.

Psychotherapy involves entering into the stuck places of your life and listening for how you struggle to live freely and authentically. It involves discovering, caring for, and reshaping the parts of your mind that are related to the problems you experience. This may involve learning to recognize unhelpful responses to pain that have themselves evolved into addictive or compulsive behaviors, addressing problematic relational patterns or making room to feel the deep hurts of loss or trauma and learning how to live well with the wounds that have shaped you.

You hope to ease your distress and experience healing, and ultimately, to enjoy satisfying, fulfilling relationships with others and with yourself. You seek the magic that comes from looking within and cultivating a relationship with your own rich inner world- a brave and vulnerable first step to finding wholeness, relief, and self-awareness. Depth psychotherapy is the process of turning inward and examining unconscious aspects of the self that have influenced you outside of your awareness, a practice that not only alleviates symptoms and suffering, but transforms unhealthy coping behaviors and problematic relationship patterns.
