Announcement icon During this time of semi-quarantine, we are able to offer confidential and encrypted sessions via phone and video using the Zoom platform.
The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.
I enjoy working with individuals and couples around life transitions; marriage, break ups, losses, parenting, empty nesting, or simply the recognition of one's unfulfilled relationships or passions. I use both a spiritual and psychological approach to help refine one's personal meaning and emerging identity during these times to create a richer next chapter
With 35 + years of practice, first as a Marriage & Family Therapist, followed by post-graduate training in psychoanalysis, I have achieved the highest level of training in the therapy field. Consequently, I am able to see what is beneath the symptom and help the client resolve the deeper underlying issues.
