Using a great deal of humor and compassion, I work with couples and individuals. I work both psychoanalytically (seeking to understand unconscious wishes and fantasies) and also cognitively, looking at present issues and challenges. I utilize both short-term AND long-term methodologies. I specialize in working with people who find themselves having relationship problems, are feeling creatively blocked, or who are not living up to their potential in their vocation.
I am a licensed psychoanalyst, but not locked into that approach. I will use whatever works best, often a combination of techniques and approaches. The one thing common to all my work is that the patient uses self-understanding to change and take control of her/his life.
I specialize in couples counseling and individual therapy. I offer psychoanalysis, but I also offer more short-term psychotherapy. My fees are on a sliding scale, and I will take insurance.
