Special interests include working with intimacy issues: looking for the right partner, staying with one, finding your way to parent hood, infertility, adoption , or letting go of a relationship that no longer serves you.
Hello, whether this is your first time seeking therapy, or you are looking for a fresh perspective, it is important to find the right fit. I bring thirty years of experience, listening, and thinking to help us build a relationship of mutual trust. Sometimes when you really feel heard, you begin to hear yourself differently, and surprising new directions emerge. If appropriate I may use Focusing, as developed by Eugene Gendlin, to help you find next steps, when you gently bring your awareness into your "body knowing" of a situation. Depression and anxiety may then lessen.

I'm a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst with more than 35 years of experience. My goal is to enable my clients to better understand themselves and their hidden emotional conflicts. Self-awareness and self-knowledge are empowering because our deepest desires for love, connectedness, and achievement are typically tangled up in bad feelings - like shame, guilt or anxiety -- that obstruct us from pursuing their fulfillment. These bad feelings are often based on unrealistic ideas, the residues of childhood experience. I work with clients to disentangle their vital wishes from these constraints so that they can live more authentic and creative lives.

As the world begins to move toward the period of "post pandemic" we may find ourselves struggling. Reports of anxiety and depression are on the rise, particularly among children. Managing our own feelings alongside our loved ones can also feel extremely overwhelming. I feel it is important to have an objective party with whom you can share and process your difficulties while improving healthy coping skills.

I view psychotherapy as a safe and nurturing environment where you feel comfortable exploring the thoughts and feelings that are linked to distress or problems. I specialize in working with adults, early career professionals, and women and/or couples who have been confronted with issues of infertility and miscarriage. Within these populations, I commonly work with issues of anxiety, depression, loss, relationship problems, career dilemmas, and life transitions. I tend to take an active role in helping you better understand your issues that often lead to feeling stuck, helpless or overwhelmed in life.

Connecting with the right therapist is so important. Finding someone who can help you find words to describe your experience, identify solutions to your problems, and develop strategies to reduce your stress. When you connect with the right person you know because you feel less alone. I have years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents, and families who faced seemingly insurmountable problems. Together, we found strength in the struggle, strategies to manage it all, and ways to feel more connected. What I love most about being a therapist is the possibility.

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper sense of fulfillment in your life. By exploring and understanding your feelings, thoughts and behaviors you will begin to develop more self-awareness and self-acceptance. It is quite rewarding to better understand the many complicated and self-sabotaging part of yourself and gain more control over those behaviors. Developing insight allows you to have a greater understanding of who you are and the life choices you have made. Insight and self-awareness give you more freedom to make healthier choices and change unsatisfied areas of your life.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
