I work with adults and adolescents who have a wide range of emotional and interpersonal difficulties. My approach to psychotherapy is to create a safe environment through supportive listening and empathy that will enable my clients to talk about patterns in their lives that are causing them distress. I help my clients understand how their problems developed and what will be required to work through their difficulties. One important aspect of psychotherapy involves accessing the unconscious mind through the exploration of one's thoughts, emotions, relationships, and behaviors, and through the interpretation of dreams. This opens the door to resolving difficulties that my clients are having, and to developing healthier relationships and new sources of self-worth and life satisfaction.

I work with individuals in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with the following treatment goals:

Overcoming Depression & Anxiety
Enhancing Self-Esteem
Improving Intimate Relationships
Resolving Work & School Difficulties
Reducing Stress & Health Problems
Controlling Destructive Habits with Hypnosis
Coping with Loss & Life Transitions
Addressing Type "A" Personality Issues
Controlling Attention Deficit Disorder
Resolving Issues From Childhood
