Care Philosophy

I offer a general psychotherapy practice treating adolescents, adults. and couples. My approach is to listen carefully and strive to elicit and understand what is hurting, where the pain is, and why. My treatment is highly individualized, based upon a thorough evaluation and discussion of the treatment options, in close collaboration with each person. I utilize whatever method(s) best suits the person. I am trained and experienced in providing Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Phase-specific Trauma Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I specialize in Trauma, the psychological effects of cancer and other medical illnesses, Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, OCD, Self-Mutilation, Dissociative Identity Disorder. I also work with musicians and artists related to the creative process, and those who are feeling stuck and looking for more from life.
