The significant challenges of modern life cause many people to lose touch with their own needs or longings in the strain of trying to adapt to the demands placed on them. Others develop self defeating patterns characterized by shame, self-blame, or substance abuse. Still others adapt successfully but are consistently blocked in their attempts to achieve lasting intimacy. As a therapist, I will work with you to achieve better understanding of the difficulties you are experiencing, and to discover more satisfying and adaptive responses.
My approach is non-judgmental and compassionate, informed by my sensing of what would be most helpful to you at that particular point. I have a profound respect for the potential of the therapeutic relationship to facilitate personal growth.
I am a graduate of a four year training program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. As a physician, I am able to prescribe psychotropic medication as an adjunct to therapy when indicated. I also practice Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a newer therapy method that can be quite helpful in healing from past traumatic events.
