The key to emotional health is nurturing the authentic self, the source of one's deepest needs and feelings. When we neglect this essential task, our ability to love and work is compromised. Depression, anxiety, and compulsive behaviors are often signs of alienation from the self. In my work, I integrate psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and experiential techniques to help clients discover and express the authentic self, to create a more productive and satisfying life.

My focus is not on excavating the past, but on exploring and addressing current problems in living. This can reveal patterns of thought and behavior that inhibit the natural capacity for healing and growth. By helping identify and change these patterns, therapy enables greater integration, authenticity, and intimacy.

My qualifications include an MA in psychology, PhD in physics, and over 15 years of experience in academia, journalism, and business. Drawing upon these diverse experiences gives me a broad perspective and multiple options for helping clients, so I can adapt my working style to each individual's needs and preferences.
