I am informed by a psychodynamic, relational/interpersonal and humanistic approach to my work as a psychologist and psychoanalyst. This means that I work in an active, collaborative way that emphasizes the value of the therapeutic relationship as well as my patient’s own positive resources. I aim to be non-judgmental and empathic in my work. My goal is to be an engaged participant in this intensive therapeutic process which aims for deep and long-lasting change for the people with whom I work.
I have over 25 years of experience working with diverse therapeutic populations and issues in a variety of mental health settings. I work with individuals, couples and adolescents to improve their relationship, parenting, gender, professional and self-esteem difficulties as well as their depression and anxiety. My therapeutic goal is to reduce distress, develop effective coping strategies and help my patients work toward fulfilling their potential for happiness and gratification and contentment in their lives.
Problems that I can help address include:
- Relationship issues
- Anxiety or fears
- Chronic pain and illness
- Gay/Lesbian/Transgender issues
- Women’s issues
- Loss or Grief
- Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Personality Disorders
