Therapy is a chance to heal, to be seen and heard, and to grow. Together we can maximize your creative potential: personally, professionally, and in all of your relationships. Identity and relationship conflicts are my areas of expertise. My years of training and experience include relational analysis, psychodynamic therapy, and family systems. I'm also a professional actor and writer, both of which inform my work as a therapist. I provide a safe supportive space for you to expand your sense of self, to identify obstacles and goals, and ultimately to liberate your life.
I am author of the book Modern Brides & Modern Grooms, and columns for Psychology Today, and HuffPost, I'm also published in Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Radio interview:
