I have been in practice for 25 years and work in my private, comfortable home office. People find me easy to talk to and often say I have the right balance between empathy and challenging them when necessary. People come to therapy because they are having difficulties handling their emotions in their work (or school) and personal relationships. As an Adult and Child Psychoanalyst, I have considerable experience working with a wide range of people from 3 years old and up to mature adulthood. I particularly like working with preschoolers, under-achieving "gifted" children, seemingly "lost" adolescents, adults and Seniors dealing with aging and retirement.
I have a Ph. D. in Clinical Psychology and additional training as a Child and Adult Psychoanalyst. This gives me the tools to help people understand their problems in depth and to find long-lasting relief from their struggles. People find me honest, sincere, easy to talk to, playful and calming.
My practice also includes private supervision to other therapists in child, adolescent and adult therapy. I teach, consult and publish about the nature of the therapeutic relationship. I also see people whose therapies feel stuck and offer consultation to them and their therapists on their treatment.
