I am most well suited to help people working through life transitions, difficult relationships, trauma and loss. I also find that I work particularly well with people interested in visual imagery and other nonverbal experience. While verbal expression is essential, we all also carry internal images, physiological and emotional expressions that can stretch well beyond language. I find that creative efforts to make use of these nonverbal elements can often expand therapeutic potentials in very useful and generative ways. What kinds of images come to mind when you think about your life experience? What kinds of sounds and smells?

I hold NYU Postdoctoral certification in psychoanalysis and EMDRIA certification in EMDR trauma therapy. While the human relationship is the core of any psychotherapy process, EMDR provides additional tools to help process experience across cognitive, emotional, imagistic and bodily modes. I offer an integrative approach based on your personal needs.

Many people are happy with their current talk therapist but are also interested to learn how EMDR may be used to aid in processing traumatic events in context of their ongoing therapy. To this end I also offer 12 session adjunct EMDR treatment modules for people interested in EMDR but already in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
