About

Finding a therapist is a challenge, especially when we are in distress, Working with difficult thoughts, feelings and behavior patterns is what I do. With over 40 years of experience, I may be able to help with your concerns. By developing an understanding of the conscious and unconscious factors involved, we can reorganize patterns of thinking and behaving that lead to a more satisfying and gratifying life for you.
I work in-depth with individuals who are motivated to take their lives seriously. A safe therapeutic relationship allows us to address the difficulties you are facing. As both a licensed counselor and a certified psychoanalyst, I draw on a variety of approaches to address your concerns. We can work together to find a more effective and suitable path for you.
The relationship between the two of us will both inform and guide the therapy. We will work in the here-and-now primarily, while mining your history for key influences. Free association and dream material can also lead to relevant emotional awareness. Our work will address your attachment patterns and how to significantly improve your close relationships.
