Psychoanalysis with Adults
Practice Description: Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision. Your personal problems and suffering deserve personalized, state of the art therapy that incorporates multiple theories and psychological perspectives into the treatment. This is the type of therapy I provide to my clients.

I have been a therapist for 15 years. I have training and experience in many types of therapy and I am not limited to only a few treatment approaches. This means, I can personalize your treatment and work directly on your specific problems and needs. I work with client's in both brief therapies and longer psychotherapies including psychoanalysis. The different treatment approaches are described on my website

Any quality psychotherapeutic experience is a commitment of your time, money and effort. Your thinking about beginning therapy probably means your problems are having an impact on you and your life in ways you want to understand and change. You need to believe that psychotherapy can help. Nothing can substitute for face to face contact. That is why I offer a FREE FIRST SESSION AND CONSULTATION. This session is designed as a time for us to ask questions of one another to begin to see if there is a “therapeutic fit.”

I always return an email or phone call, so if you don't hear back from me somehow your message did not come through and you might want to try again, using both email and phone.
