Our symptoms have something to say. Different symptoms bring people into psychotherapy: anxiousness, chronic sadness, creative and artistic block, loneliness, addictions, sexual obsessions. Symptoms are a language, and though they are often labeled as depression or anxiety, the meaning of a symptom is unique to the person who suffers with it. Symptoms are painful, but they are also startlingly creative, personal and specific. Sometimes the body is asked to express the scary, painful things that words cannot. When physical symptoms occur without a medical explanation, we can look to them to help us understand the mental and emotional landscape.

I specialize in helping to decipher the language of symptoms. I listen for things that are just outside of awareness. When the unsayable is brought into words, in the safety of the therapy room, it can then be understood and worked through, changed and healed.

I tend not to specialize in specific problems, since I have come to understand that symptoms mean very different things to different people. That said, I do have a special passion for working with people with chronic medical conditions, and also with artists who are creatively blocked.
