I have also had psychoanalytic training, and am a Kripalu Yoga Teacher - making me keenly aware of interplay between mind and body.
I aim to guide clients to uncover and understand their truths as they share their stories. Feelings around intimacy, loss, and shame which manifest as depression and anxiety are often central themes. Couples counseling, issues relating to sex and sexuality, co-parenting, divorce, and physical illness are some of my specialties. People become stuck in self-imposed limitations and self defeating actions and self talk. In our work, you will gain new perspectives that encourage your authentic self to express itself.

I practice from a psycho dynamic, psychoanalytic, cognitive, behavioral and systems perspective.
Often times we find ourselves feeling frustrated with relationships, either at home or at work. Perhaps we are in transition, adjusting to major life events such as the loss of a job, loss of a significant person, or caring for an aging parent. Depression, anxiety and stress can get in the way of living a more full, productive and satisfying life. Utilizing a supportive, non-judgmental, collaborative and engaged therapeutic relationship, I can help you understand those internal barriers, with the goal of relieving those symptoms.

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons: anxiety, depression, relationship complications, sexuality issues, to name just a specific few; or it may be a combination of issues, or even for reasons one cannot immediately put a finger on -- a general sense of "just not feeling right." Regardless the reasons, you likely found this site in a search for relief and/or a better understanding of where you find yourself at this particular moment in your own story. So now comes the (sometimes) daunting task of finding someone who might offer help.

Psychoanalytic Therapists

Does psychoanalytic therapy work?

Psychoanalytic therapy derives from the work of Sigmund Freud. In this type of therapy, discovering buried thoughts and emotions from the unconscious will help a person work through their difficulties and negative behaviors. Research shows that psychoanalytic therapy can be highly effective, with patients reporting improvement in mood, quality of life, and overall well-being.

How long are people typically in psychoanalytic therapy?

Traditional psychoanalysis is in-depth and is conducted in five sessions every week. Today, modern psychoanalytic therapy is less intense and normally incorporates as few as one or two sessions a week. In some cases, positive change can occur quickly. However, if the condition, difficulty, or behavior is deep-seated, improvement may require many months or years of therapy.

Is psychoanalytic therapy suitable for young people?

Children and adolescents can benefit from this type of therapy. Many kids and teens are often unable to form and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Psychoanalytic therapy uses specific techniques such as dream analysis, symbolism, and free association or word association; all of which can be useful tools for less-communicative young people. Through this therapy, a patient will hopefully make connections between what they feel inside and how the world works outside.

Can psychoanalytic therapy be done online?

Modern-day psychoanalytic therapy is very different from traditional psychoanalysis. While an individual can sit face-to-face with the psychoanalyst for multiple sessions a week, they do not have to. Today, psychoanalytic therapy can be effectively conducted online or by phone. The key is that the individual confronts what is repressed and avoided, and this can be done whether in person or over online video.
