About

At times you may feel too depleted to consider making needed changes in your life, or to know what is even possible to change. Old coping mechanisms no longer work so well, bringing diminishing returns and unhappiness. It may take a crisis to be ready to seek help. Psychotherapy can reveal ways of replacing the behavior patterns and symptoms that cause us trouble with real solutions. Using the insights of existential and psychodynamic perspectives of psychology - including dream work - as a basis, I will help you understand yourself, care for yourself, and discover strength and meaning wherever you may find yourself in your life.
I specialize in working with Philadelphians; men over 40; parents of special-needs children; and LGBTQ people. I am experienced in trauma-informed care, with an awareness of the effects of systemic racism, oppression, and exclusion that operate in all of our social systems.
Recovery from alcoholism and substance abuse involves confronting the full force of longstanding emotional and psychological issues, and requires new tools and inner resources. I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy with full support and thorough understanding of the 12-step model of recovery, and a means of addressing “outside issues” in this context.
