I offer therapy to individuals who suffer a range of mental and emotional difficulties and seek a safe therapeutic relationship in which to explore and resolve those difficulties. I work with older adolescents, adults and elders experiencing depression and anxiety; who struggle in their current relationships or with past traumas; who are facing complex life transitions or living with grief and loss; who feel dissatisfied or alienated and long for a more effective, creative or meaningful life.
In our first appointment, you have the opportunity to discuss what led you to seek therapy and what you hope to achieve, to ask any questions, to get a feeling for how I work and whether you would wish to continue. My commitment is to listen as carefully as I can to what you tell me, offering my thoughts and observations as a means to facilitate our mutual awareness and insight into your difficulties. I view the therapeutic process as collaborative, one in which you and I work together to identify and engage what is honest and true to your experience in a way that understanding, healing and change can occur.
In addition to extensive training in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis, I also have a long time practice of meditation, giving me what I consider an important mind-body-spirit perspective that I incorporate into my work.
