Therapy is the hard work of becoming awake to, and accepting of, what is real in ourselves and in life. Only when awake and living within the bounds of reality can we be loved, loving, healthy and happy. Addiction, depression, anxiety are among the experiences that can interfere with our experience of a healthy, joyful life. I feel priveledged to assist and accompany brave individuals on this journey of learning to change what we can, and stop fighting what we cannot. My therapy work combines traditional psychodynamic and cognitive approaches with Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practices.

Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their life want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it's a combination. By working together I can help you in this challenge. I frequently work with adolescents and adults struggling with addiction in themselves or in their families. Many of my patients are addressing anxiety, depression, questions or challenges regarding their sexual orientation, infertility, life transitions, traumatic experiences or eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors. A lot of my patients are college or graduate students.

CURRENTLY: I am accepting new teletherapy patients. These sessions are reimbursable at the same rate as in-person therapy. As a psychologist and psychoanalyst, I aim to help patients understand the trouble in their lives and make significant changes. I believe it is important to take the time to get to know patients' stories. My approach is both collaborative and challenging. Sometimes this involves helping people look at parts of themselves that are painful, or hard to see clearly. Many patients benefit from long-term, intensive therapy, while others find that shorter-term therapy helps them solve immediate problems.

There is nothing harder than starting every day with the hopeless feeling that nothing is ever going to change and what's the use in trying? Whether caused by addiction to substances or behaviors, you can recover. Together we can do what you can't do alone or with the well meant advice of your friends and relatives. I would like to meet you and help you get started on the rest of your life with an understanding of how you came to the place you feel stuck in and how to move on to a better tomorrow. The hardest step in recovery is admitting you need help and making the call. You never have to be where you are again.

*NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS* Welcome to my psychology practice. Intimate relationships are challenging for just about everyone. Keeping a passionate connection alive over time requires unique skills, persistence and determination. I work with individuals and couples who wish to deepen emotional or sexual intimacy, improve communication, strengthen their romantic bond, heal from affairs, and folks who feel addicted to pornography or other sexual outlets, as well as depression, irritability, anxiety, etc. Probably the best way to get a sense of me quickly is to read my Psychology Today blog, The Future of Intimacy.

Good therapy should result in real life changes, not just increased self-awareness in the therapy office. People are seeking understanding, and guidance. My best work comes when there is mutual respect and an openness to learning. Everyone feels better when they find out they are not 'crazy' and there is an explanation for what they are feeling and thinking. I tend to be active in my work, because people come because they want feedback, not silence. My style is eclectic, meaning I will use many techniques to reach the goal, and the challenge will extend past my office door.

Frustrated? Feeling confused or overwhelmed? Often, life speeds away from us before we realize how quickly things have changed. Life is a process of personal growth and evolution, as well as a process of building and maintaining relationships with people in a world that's constantly in flux. If you're looking to develop greater insight into these concerns, counseling is a great place to start. In my practice, I focus on partnering with you to explore challenges around interpersonal relationships, behavioral problems, sexual identity and behavior, and many other aspects of life.
