Counseling can be a rewarding journey toward personal growth and a more enriching life. I will come alongside you in this process. Together, we can strive to help you reach your goals, deal with past hurts, experience hope, and develop a more authentic sense of self. Counseling can be as deep as you would like. We can focus on the problem at hand or delve into core issues and patterns, some conscious and others unconscious, that keep you stuck. My psychoanalytic training and interest allow me to provide a longer-term, deeper treatment if that is what you’re seeking.
I consider it a privilege to work with individuals, couples, and groups. I have worked in various settings including a hospice, a drug and alcohol rehab with dual diagnosis patients, a community counseling center, and in private practice. The most influential theories on my counseling style come from psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, existential, and family systems schools of thought. I have also been influenced by cognitive behavioral and solution-focused psychotherapies. My areas of specialization include psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, stage of life problems, grief/loss, trauma and abuse, and addictions.
