"You hide it well. You dress the part. You focus on other people so they won't focus on you. You do well professionally and it distracts you from how deeply alone you feel. Often if seems easier to pretend that you're OK, but deep down... you hope for something more. I specialize in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults who struggle with shame, depression, suicidality, divorce, anger, anxiety, isolation, or estrangment from family members.

"What I do is help clients identify and understand thoughts and beliefs they have that keep them from feeling good about themselves and get in the way of living life to its fullest. Each individual has a unique view of the world and relationships etched out of our early experience. If those experiences are good enough, then one is able to meet life's challenges, but if these experiences are wrought with dysfunction and trauma, meeting these challenges is much more difficult and one may require assistance from a professional who can safely facilitate exploration of the obstacles to fulfillment."

If you have a psychological issue and would like rapid reprogramming (e.g., PTSD, anxiety, panic, depression, addiction, phobias), I can help--even when conscious-based tools have failed. If you have a physical issue that hasn't fully responded to other treatments (e.g., IBS, fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic pain), I can help. If you want to boost your immune system, boost fertility, or decrease nausea associated with chemotherapy, I can help. "
