Psychotherapy offers help dealing with difficult life stages and events as well as an opportunity to understand oneself and important relationships. In my practice, I work with a wide range of individuals, however many come to address issues of depression, anxiety, sexuality, loss and difficulties with executive functioning.

My approach is grounded in Psychodynamic theory but I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy when indicated. I completed postgraduate training in Intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis & Psychology. I have also trained at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy.
