About

Do you lack self-confidence? Achieving greater self-confidence can lead to immense improvement in every area of one's life. Depression and/or anxiety can develop as a result of low self-confidence, often stemming from early childhood experiences. I have substantial training and experience in helping patients to understand themselves better and to receive the support that has been lacking in their lives. I completed extensive postgraduate training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. Call me to set up your free consultation. I look forward to seeing you.
I have a warm and relaxed style. My focus is on how to resolve problems in the present, as well as understanding the impact of the past. I have worked well with depression, anxiety, loss, Attention Deficit Disorder and problems with self-esteem. I also help clients to better understand and improve their relationships.
Many clients complain that they have not gotten enough feedback from their past therapists. As a therapist, I am very interactive and frequently offer observations and feedback.
