*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

I believe individuals come to talk to a therapist when in emotional pain-- sadness, fear, loneliness, depression, traumas, and uncertainties. I want to help people express their deep concerns and learn what emotional conflicts and transitions are causing discomforts. Understanding inner experience is very helpful with a psychoanalytic therapist who creates with you a trusting place for speaking. Knowing oneself deeply can bring about transformations in the way you feel, have a relationship, and are able to work and create. I look forward to speaking with you and listening to what you need to talk about.

Having been trained to work with people across the lifespan has enabled me to integrate an understanding of the origins, development and resolution of behavior and relationship patterns which are presently holding the client back from important accomplishments or feelings of well-being in their lives, even though these patterns may very well have historically originated out of a functional need.
