Do you want to improve your relationships? Do you feel overly anxious at times or "blue" and don't understand where such feelings are coming from? Perhaps I can help you. Over the last twenty-five years I have worked with many individuals with stressful marital and interpersonal issues. Getting a better grasp of the conflicts and feelings you are experiencing can help you create better coping skills and feel more in control of your life. With a Ph.D. in art history, I have a special interest in working with artists, writers, entrepreneurs and other creative individuals.

My philosophy has evolved over two decades of hands-on clinical work, extensive psychoanalytic training and analysis. These experiences have taught me that if I listen carefully enough to anyone's story, they and their struggles make sense. I try to help people stop seeing themselves as an extension of their problem and see the problems as an attempt to cope with something unseen and overwhelming that has gone awry. Every person's choices in life, whether in relationships, work, and play make sense, even if they are self-destructive. I work primarily with adults and adolescents, and with couples.

I have several years in both Psychoanalytic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
I'm a licensed psychotherapist. People ask for my advice on all aspects of life. I'm a new genus of therapists- mixing cognitive behavior DBT and psychodynamic therapies, to get the resolve you want. And I love what I do. With a relationship based on trust, respect and empathy, my goal is to help you create a different view of life- to change faulty thinking, get past old schemas, and resolve current issues that get in the way of your own personal growth and joy in life. Let's work on breaking destructive patterns, thoughts and actions through gained strength, empathy and resolution.

I draw on psychoanalytic and trauma-focused theories.
People often feel alone with their problems. Your inner world can feel very different from how others see you. Privately you may feel sad, anxious or overwhelmed with life's challenges. You may be unhappy with how your life is going generally or with specific things about yourself or your relationships. Perhaps painful/traumatic experiences from your past are continuing to trouble you. Your feelings may lead to difficulty with intimacy, work, self-image, sleep, drugs/alcohol, eating, sex, or motivation. These are the kinds of problems I hear about often from people I see for psychotherapy. Together we can work to improve your life.

Using a psychoanalytic lens, my approach is to support you as you create the space for the change you need.
Navigating life’s circumstances can be complicated and challenging. Although we must find the strength to get past the roadblocks in our lives, we don’t have to do it alone. Therapy can help us get to know ourselves so that we can find new ways to respond when the pressure of modern living becomes too much. My aim as a therapist is to partner with you on a journey of self-discovery so that you can find satisfaction and thrive. I believe therapy can help us uncover subtle beliefs and patterns that shape our daily experiences. With greater awareness, we gain the tools to enact positive change and remodel relationships.

My clinical work is deepened by my engagement in psychoanalytic writing and research.
Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

I trained at a psychoanalytic institute which taught all methods but focused on an interpersonal, relational approach.
Why do people seek help? I think people in great pain have somehow lost their ability to navigate in the world. Depression, anxiety, and fear renders a person helpless and one cannot summon their old ways of being. Recent trauma or unresolved issues can suddenly alienate a person from themselves. Often people are wrestling with unexamined fears or emotions that have long been dissociated. In the safety of the therapeutic space, the client can confront that which is most difficult with the aim of once again feeling whole, thus able to pursue, with energy and pleasure, their work and relationships.

"When an inner situation is not made conscious it appears outside as fate." (C.G. Jung) I believe that who we are--and the emotional and psychological distress we experience--are often rooted in our relationships with others, as well as in our relationship with ourselves. However, I also believe that we are born with innate characteristics and orientations--many unconscious--that affect how we participate in those same relationships. Therefore, I use a variety of styles, including psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, relational and cognitive-behavioral, based on the specific needs of a given client.

I use an active relational psychoanalytic approach to make meaning of psychological and emotional difficulties through an ongoing therapeutic conversation.
Everyone needs the safest possible space to explore oneself to grow, to carefully unpack what is at the root of every discomfort in living—worry, fear, regret, anger—new frustrations and old ones. Finding the right words to name our internal conflicts reveals how we attempt to master the past by repeating our patterns in the present. Bringing this struggle into full awareness offers a fresh opportunity to work our issues and outgrown ways of relating toward final resolution. Such reflection and the articulation of inner experience imparts more freedom and equanimity to our choices, and opens us up to feel more passionate and alive.

Psychoanalytic therapy is often maligned in popular media but it remains for me one of the few treatments that seeks to address the innermost, often hidden, parts of ourselves. Psychological symptoms are not only a source of suffering, they are also a message that speaks to desires, conflicts, and pain, wrought by a personal history that can sometimes only come alive when spoken to a professional listening other. The flip-side of anxiety is always a passionate dream that has not been encountered as such. I see my work as bringing my clients closer to that possibility. The intimacy of speaking and listening is rare and a gift.
