Practice Description: If you have been struggling for a long time with feeling anxious, empty, guilty, worthless, stuck, or haunted by your past, I can help.

Starting out, we will create a safe, collaborative relationship where we can explore, understand, and clarify the concerns and issues that bring you to therapy. As we continue in this work together, we will grieve losses, heal deep hurts, re-work deeply entrenched patterns that cause suffering, and find new ways for you to be in the world.

My approach has a deep respect for people as unique individuals. I take a psychoanalytic approach to my work, which means we focus on not only where you’re currently at in life, but also where you’ve been. We also focus on the feelings, dynamics, conflicts, and patterns that are at work inside you that are both in your awareness and not in your awareness. This approach is ideal for people looking for deep, sustainable change. In uncovering and working through parts of your experience that are out of awareness, we can free up immense energy and potential to be used toward your growth, health, and dreams.

I have rich experience working with people from all walks of life, facing a wide variety of struggles. I truly enjoy my work and would love to talk with you about how we might work together to help you.
