Are you struggling with how childhood experiences, losses or trauma continues to influence your life? Are you discouraged at repeating difficult situations or find it hard to get out from under depression or anxiety? I'm glad to see how we can put our minds together to understand your dilemmas and see things differently. Change is possible no matter what your age or your life circumstances when you feel seen, accepted and appreciated for who you are and where you've been.

I have extensive experience treating pain arising from different kinds of loss including trauma, PTSD and not being understood. Other interests include couples therapy, and older adults In addition, I enjoy supervising and consulting for new and experienced clinicians and offer a psychoanalytic perspective.

I specialize in long term psychoanalytic psychotherapy and value empathy, understanding, and reflection in healing previously unmet relational needs. My decades of clinical experience, extended training, and warmth means I offer patience and acceptance of you in a reliable and ongoing way over time to help your accept and love yourself.
