Licensed Psychoanalyst, DMin, PsyD, LP
psychotherapy, the modern version of classical psychoanalysis with its rich tradition of theory and healing extending back more than a century.
I work with individuals and couples whose lives have been interrupted by depression, anxiety, mourning, and trauma. Psychotherapy, like pastoral care and psychoanlysis, is "soul work" - self expression in the presence of a trusted friend and guide. In this safe space of the therapeutic relationship, thoughts and feelings, dreams and fantasies, desires and fears are given voice -- loud and clear, and without judgment. Authentic verbal and emotional expression is transformative. As dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior become clear, as shattered parts of the self are recognized and linked, a new wholeness is achieved which offers the courage to change and the joy of freedom.
