Practice Description:
I am offering sessions with HIPPA-compliant Zoom. You may contact me by email or cell phone for more information.

The people I’ve worked with over the years have come with various problems: difficulty growing up, grieving the loss of an important person, inability to find a direction in life, regret over past relationships and despair about finding someone to love, overpowering anxiety seemingly connected to nothing specific, questions around sexuality. Whatever the problem, my method is usually pretty much the same. I try to make a real contact and to understand what is going on, considering a person’s whole life story. After that, we work together to overcome the stumbling blocks to personal development and happiness.

Therapy offers an opportunity to understand more about ourselves in a safe and private space. I find that given the chance to talk about what’s going on in their lives, people often begin to make changes that lead to greater happiness and satisfaction.

I have been practicing psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for more than 25 years. My website,, details my practice. I am also involved in teaching and supervising other psychotherapists. As a clinician, my goal is to help people derive more satisfaction in their lives and relationships. I believe treatment can help us to become happier, freer and more creative.
