With children I utilize play therapy (even on video!), mindfulness, as well as behavioral methods.
In understanding how our histories and present circumstances affect us, we cultivate empathy for ourselves and those around us. The past few years have brought multiple global and local crises we have had to navigate through collectively. Whether you or your child are personally working through conflictual relationships, painful past experiences or trauma, work/school stress, or problematic behaviors, our societal context can amplify these difficulties. Therapy illuminates the patterns we find ourselves in, and also provides ways of coping with the distress resulting from these patterns.

My practice creates a safe space for children and adolescents to express themselves through play and talk.
In my practice, I aim to create a comfortable space within which to explore emotional, interpersonal, and behavioral difficulties. I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, couple, and family psychotherapy. Through a collaborative process, I help patients discover connections between problematic patterns of thinking and relating, and the ongoing challenges they face. These connections – between thoughts and feelings, past and present, internal experience and external situations – can help a person think in new ways, generating possibilities for growth and change.

I see children through play therapy , and adolescents and adults in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
I work from a psychodynamic position, with the aim to raise the curiosity over behavioral patterns that do not fit with the way we think of ourselves. I work with adults from a diversity of backgrounds and I believe the strength of my approach lies in helping people to expand their understanding of complex issues, not only by listening to their explicit and implicit narratives, but also paying attention to dreams, body language, and to the experiences and images that arise during sessions. I use psychoanalytic theory as a lens to process what takes place—an approach that does not necessarily need a couch or multiple sessions a week.

I work with children in play therapy but work also very much with the parents and the child-parent(s) dyad.
I am committed to creating an atmosphere of trust, respect, and honesty. I listen attentively and believe that the relationship that we create together is the most important tool for our work together. My orientation is also psychodynamic, which means that I believe in the central role of the unconscious, past history and emotional forces. I apply this approach to many kinds of issues (depression, anxiety, addiction, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, general sense of dissatisfaction with life). My goal is to help you develop the awareness, insight, and psychological skills that you will be able to use later on your own.
