Using the therapeutic process I can offer many things to people: empathy and a sounding board, other ways of looking at issues, and ideas about how to solve problems. In addition, I can help you feel more alive to your experience as paying attention to your inner voice can increase your capacity to feel and be present. I have been a therapist for over twenty years. I also have taught clinical practice for ten years to students earning their masters degrees in counseling and I provide ongoing clinical supervision for people who work in various settings.

The first premise in my practice is the respect I have for the person coming to me seeking to start psychotherapy. I understand how difficult it is to start therapy and talk to someone about our problems. No one is alike, no life style is the same. I listen to each of my patients allowing them time to familiarize with the purpose of the therapy and to begin to genuinely speak about the difficulties they encounter in their lives. Psychotherapy is a process of discovery and growth. As a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst I strive to facilitate this process.

Therapy is about seeking balance and asking questions and looking for answers. Finding a balance between what we feel and what we know and a balance between the quicker emotional side of our mind and the more considered rational side are part of the process. Whether the questions are around interpersonal relationships, substance abuse, parenting, or career and motivation the answers will come only with this balance. My approach to therapy is about solving problems based on a relational and collaborative approach offering a supportive and sympathetic ear balanced with reality and solutions.
