People seek therapy for different reasons. Some want to solve a specific problem, and some want relief from feelings of unhappiness or anxiety. Others want to make a change in work or relationships, or want to be liberated from a pattern of behavior that's not working for them. You may have a combination of these issues or just feel jumbled -- uncertain about the source of troubling feelings. In all of these cases, seeking professional help is the first step. By doing so, you make real your wish for change and your wish to feel better.
My approach uses analytically-informed psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. This means that together we will seek to understand the particular ways you have of reacting to events and the ways in which you relate to others, both of which are often at the root of emotional difficulties.
Over time, working this way makes it possible to address a variety of issues and get relief from emotional pain and troubling symptoms. Initiating therapy is a signal that you are serious about wanting to feel better and that you are worthy of the effort to improve your life.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.
