Those I work with are often quite stuck. They may even be in crisis. They struggle with anxiety, depression, upsetting or intrusive thoughts/voices, unexplainable feelings in their bodies, painful memories, questions about gender or sexuality, substance abuse, suicide and more. These experiences may interfere with friendships, parenting, romantic relationships and/or work. The symptom, no matter what particular form it takes, is a message that wants to be heard and hopes to be spoken.
Perhaps you've tried therapy and found the therapist wanted to be a friend rather than help you with a question. Or they simply told you to change how you think about your question. Instead, I work collaboratively with you to help you come to terms with the logic of your symptom and provide you a new measure of choice in your daily life.
I invite you to speak. I will always keep our environment safe and nonjudgemental. I may challenge you at times, but always with care. To find relief takes two people interested in new truths. I welcome you to join me. NOTE: I am licensed for virtual work in nearly 40 states. Please see my website for full list.

"
I am a psychoanalytic provider, which means that you and I will work together to uncover the unconscious logic of your suffering. The focus in session will be on your words. I will intervene to help uncover what is happening on another level of thought beyond the logical. Feeling better is not a matter of being more "rational," as some therapies believe, but instead of knowing the irrational.
