My therapeutic approach is rooted in an existential, humanistic perspective and draws from psychodynamic and relational theories.
If you are looking for a therapist, you may be feeling confused, frustrated, isolated, scared and possibly in emotional pain. I aim to provide a safe space that is mutually created through a trusting connection built to hold whatever you bring into therapy. The therapy space is your space, so it is important to me that you feel comfortable and heard. I look forward to working together with you to grow, change, heal, and build a more satisfying and purposeful life.

In our initial meetings I will want to get an understanding of what is working well in your life as well as what is not working well. I will also obtain a history and after a couple of sesions I will share with you my assessment of you and your problems and will recommend a treatment approach that I think will be helpful.

I typically work from a psychodynamic perspective, understanding clients based on their own view of themselves and others, and looking at how patterns in relationships can be both helpful and problematic for them.
As a clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience, I want to understand you as a whole person with strengths as well as current difficulties. If you are looking for a therapist, it is generally because many efforts you have made to solve a problem haven't worked. You may be faced with a very difficult and painful situation, such as a relationship problem, loss, job problem, or illness. Or, you may be experiencing symptoms which are associated with emotional distress, such as chronic anxiety, social anxiety, or depression.

My work with adults uses psychodynamic , attachment, cognitive and interpersonal theories to understand the client's beliefs and expectations, and how they are affecting their current emotions and decision-making.
I am a psychologist in practice for over twenty-five years, working with children, adults, teens, and families. My approach is interpersonal and attachment-oriented, but I also use concepts and techniques from meditation and mindfulness disciplines. I am a general-practice psychologist and like to see a diverse cross-section of clients, though I have worked more specifically with family conflict, and children of divorce, in recent years. Currently I am primarily working with adults and couples in remote teletherapy sessions.

My clients and I have had success in using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing, narrative and psychodynamic therapy.
At each stage of life we encounter new chances to overcome obstacles and live with peace of mind. We can meet these challenges with the right understanding, insight and support. Perhaps you are a young adult working to make the best choices in your career, in mid-life, navigating the stresses and strains of caring for your family, or in advanced years, searching for direction or meaning. My counseling services offer reasonably priced mental health care for the many obstacles you can encounter on your way to getting all you can from life.

As a psychodynamic therapist with extensive training in existential philosophy, I will work with you to establish a relationship that creates space in your life for movement and growth.
People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's experience. Sometimes life can be a struggle: identity, relationships, environments and situations can stress our resources and lead us to lean on familiar ways of being, even when those ways do not feel useful or helpful anymore. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning. It also provides a space to explore ways of relating to yourself, others in your life, and the world.

We all reach moments in our lives when coping on our own is not sufficient. Therapy can be uniquely helpful when struggling with aspects of self care, relationships and/or negotiating external circumstances including with our political world. A confidential space dedicated to untangling your emotions and the origins of persistent struggles can be life changing. I specialize in grief, trauma, depression and anxiety, dysfunctional family systems as well as issues related to immigration, assimilation and oppression. I also work with couples stuck in patterns and communication blocks.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
