About

Many things can trigger a call to a therapist: Overwhelming anxiety, persistent feelings of depression, unfulfilling or problematic relationships at home or at work, or sudden changes in life circumstances (health, financial, or interpersonal). Talking to a therapist in a supportive environment can be very helpful. Therapy helps you figure out what you want to get out of life, identify what gets in your way, and work out new ways of approaching your goals. When you come in regularly to talk, exploring patterns and identifying factors that interfere with achieving goals, your life tends to improve.
My background in health psychology, psychoanalysis, and problem-focused psychotherapy enables me to be successful with a full range of emotional and physical disorders. I work with patients ranging in age from childhood to late adulthood. In addition to a general practice, I specialize in treating people newly diagnosed with life-altering medical diagnoses.
My vision of treatment is that the techniques, frequency and length of therapy is informed by the individual. I view therapy as a collaborative process through which patients ultimately learn to problem-solve and make life choices independently. Fees vary according to modality and are dictated by the patient's needs.
