About

Without meaning and the chance to therapeutically practice new insights and behaviors, we may suffer unnecessarily during times of high stress, trauma, or in daily life. Feelings may become like overwhelming floods of dread, sorrow or numbness, thinking becomes confused, panicky, and self-critical, joy is lost. Together we can make good use of your strengths, symptoms and external challenges. Through exploring and deepening our understanding and trust in your own inner world, dignity and liveliness may be restored even under the most challenging or enduring of circumstances, illnesses or problems.
As a psychoanalyst & integrative medicine expert, I am interested in your unique person or couple's relationship. I offer brief or in-depth care depending upon your concerns. I also provide med-legal evaluation & treatment to injured workers. While seeking therapy to talk about your pain may feel vulnerable, it is an act of courage and self-determination.
My services are built on years of compassionate & successful treatment outcomes: decreased passive and invasive modalities to treat injury/illness; recovered partnerships; reconciliation of loss, limitation, and trauma; greater flexibility and freedom; decreased internal "sibling rivalry"; & greater enjoyment of what you already have and who you already are.
