I specialize in working with lesbian and gay clients. I help clients manage stress, build relationships and enhance communication skills by providing short term psychotherapy and couples counseling. My goal is to listen, understand and support clients so that they feel their own inner strength and no longer need my services.

Finding the right therapist is the first step towards healing and the relief of your pain. A trusting relationship is the essence of effective treatment. You need to feel connected and understood in order to share your internal world. My empathic capacities will enable you to feel safe enough to explore the problems which have hindered your life and relationships. My perspective is informed by contemporary relational psychoanalysis and I use psychodynamic methods to help us understand what makes you into you and recognize your potential, so you can become freer to change and be the author of your own life story.

"I have commanded foreign words to explicate the native in me, all the while obfuscating what was, but was not, could not be, spoken. And what of words? I have spoken in multitudes and platitudes. I have harbored thoughts and feelings with no hope of setting them off to sail in these words. All words but my own. There are, and always will be, two ways to tell my stories. I shall strive to choose dis-cordingly. There once was word where my innards stood. First there was word. After word there was silence. ..."

Often the primary impetus to seek help is in the areas of love ( relationship difficulties) and work (stress, career confusion, and the like).
I want to help you empower yourself with love and self-acceptance. I approach the psychotherapy process in an interactive manner, and I view it as helping create new options. To this end, I integrate spontaneity and creativity in my work. I serve diverse populations, believing that "we are all more human than otherwise." My blog, Musings to Mull Over, accessible via this URL: musingstomullover.wordpress.com/, can give you a flavor of my approach and thinking. I welcome your comments and feedback on the site.

Trained in both classical and contemporary analysis, I focus on depression and anxiety, sexual and relationship issues , trauma and self-identity problems. We would start with a consultation and our goal would be to establish a fruitful connection from the beginning. My other goals include helping you with your feelings, the troubling ones that return unwanted. I have found listening well is at least as important as talking well. Speech contains levels of meaning and so does silence. We discourse together in a dialogue leading to better relationships, better functioning, and better experiences.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
