If you are considering a change, want to resolve conflict, or heal the past, you have taken the first step. It can be difficult to finally reach out to someone. Sometimes our problems may manifest as conflict in our relationships and occupations. Managing changes in our lives may create stress and confusion. Loss and grieving may require more support than family and friends can provide. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy can serve to give you the space to clarify issues and heal.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a Doctorate in Psychoanalysis. I am interested in exploring conflict on a deeper level and I strive to foster an environment for gaining insight and "being seen" by another.
I offer the knowledge and skills to help my clients process through such issues as depression, family conflict, and trauma. I combine various approaches to accommodate the unique personality and needs of each of my clients. I provide a calm, caring, and safe space that helps to organize your experience.
