Announcement icon I am continuing to see new patients during the COVID-19 pandemic through HIPAA compliant video conferences.
Feeling chronic negative emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety, or loneliness is often a sign that something in our relationships has gone awry. By the time we attend psychotherapy, the task of altering our relationships may feel difficult or impossible to navigate alone. As a psychodynamic therapist, I am interested in how your early relationships impact your personality, worldview, attachment, perceptions, and coping mechanisms. Through compassion, challenge and sometimes humor, I aim to help my patients gain insight, learn new ways of relating, and implement change in order to heal, grow and flourish.
I specialize in young adult issues such as emotional/behavioral challenges, life transitions, relationships, and identity. I am pursuing advanced psychoanalytic training and have testified in court as an expert witness on parent-child relationships following divorce. I also have experience with individuals who have suffered sexual abuse and complex trauma.
I work to provide a safe space for you to process negative emotions and experiences, self-reflect without judgment, explore ambivalence to change, and ultimately commit to healthily caring for yourself and others. I look forward to supporting you on the journey of learning about yourself in order to live a more authentic and meaningful life.
