Choosing a mental health specialist can be an overwhelming task. Qualifications, location, and the type of mental health care a practitioner provides are essential ingredients in determining a good fit. However, above and beyond all logistical matters is the most important ingredient of all; trust. I specialize in working with trauma, depression, and anxiety as it manifests uniquely in all human beings. Please feel free to call me for any questions you may have about my practice. I am here to help.

"A dream that is not understood remains a mere occurrence; understood it becomes a living experience."
How long does each therapy session take?
Each session lasts for approximately fourty-five minutes. I also offer double sessions as well as concentrated intensives for those who travel or where time does not permit multiple or single weekly sessions.
Do you offer sliding scale rates?
My fee is $150 per 45-minute session and $165 per 60-minute session. I offer sliding scale rates for those who cannot afford analysis. I am a provider for Aetna Insurance and provide superbills for other insurance company reimbursements. I also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal, and HSA payments.
How Do you use Jungian analysis techniques?
As a trained analyst I draw from both dept schools of psychoanalytic thought while utilizing Jungian analysis as the primary platform for the work.
I have extensive experience in treating individuals, couples, adolescents, and their families suffering from trauma as well as developmental crisis. I believe that suffering is an inherent part of the human condition. Often one's support systems are enough for the organic resolution of suffering. However, there are times when one's need for psychological and emotional support extends beyond the grasp of the familiar, into the unknown; a place that requires navigation by a specialist. There is no shame in reaching out.
You are me, and I am you.
Isn't it obvious that we "'inter-are"?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself, so that you will not have to suffer.
I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy.
Relationships are sacred and require constant care. Couples therapy is important for maintaining the bonds of intimacy and for restoring security and love when all feels lost. I have worked with couples throughout my professional life, and look forward to working with you. I am familiar with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and The Gottman Method.

Adolescence is fraught with angst and crisis. It is vital and necessary that adolescents have the space and privacy they desire in order to develop their own sense of autonomy in the world. With my extensive work with adolescents, I have developed the acumen for listening, understanding and supporting their struggle.
