About My Practice
It takes courage to make the first phone call to a therapist, to begin to talk about private emotional issues that are troubling you, whether problems with your mood, self-esteem, or long standing patterns of sabotaging yourself in intimate relationships or work. My approach is compassionate, thoughtful and collaborative. My goal is to establish a safe environment in which we can work together to understand your internal world, your fears and desires, patterns of relating and to discover what has made it so difficult for you to make the necessary changes for you to feel better and to grow.
As you gain a deeper understanding of yourself you will begin to achieve a greater emotional freedom in your life. You can begin to change your ideas about yourself and others and start to think, feel and act in ways that are more flexible and successful.
I see individual adults for psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in my practice. If you consult with me, the first few sessions will be devoted to discussing the problems you want to address, how you have tried to solve things independently or in other therapies and most importantly whether I will be the best "fit" for you.
My fees vary depending upon patient resources and intensity of treatment. I will discuss your situation with you if you choose to consult with me.
Experience and Training
I am a licensed psychologist with over 25 years experience working in mental health. My doctoral program was a unique program that combined the most relevant coursework from biomedical sciences, psychological sciences, psychiatry, and social work, with extensive clinically focused training in inpatient, outpatient and community settings.
My intensive post-doctoral training has helped to deepen my psychological understanding of individuals and has given me the tools to help people make long lasting changes in their lives. My clinical work now takes place primarily in private practice. I also teach and supervise psychiatry residents, psychology fellows and other mental health professionals. I participate in study groups and continuing professional education to maintain and enhance my skills.
