I have been in practice as a psychotherapist for over 32 years.  I work interactively and collaboratively in both long-term and short-term therapies.  I am licensed as a Clinical Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with a racially and socially diverse range of individuals and couples on a wide variety of issues: 

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Stress and trauma

  • Coping with acute illness, loss and grief

  • Gay and lesbian individuals, couples, and issues

  • Couples contemplating divorce/break-ups

  • Couples wanting to strengthen their relationship

  • Parenting issues and issues of infertility

Because issues we face often have their origin in family dynamics and early relationships, a psychoanalytic psychotherapy can provide a way to understand how we developed our coping strategies, the purposes they serve, and new options for the future.
