Personal Statement

My approach as a therapist is collaborative and integrative, informed by over 20 years of experience and training in psychoanalysis, family systems, and cognitive therapy. I try to be responsive to the unique needs of each individual within an environment of respect, empathy and confidentiality. As a psychoanalyst, I am particularly interested in how early experience shapes our present ways of being and feeling, and in understanding and working through unconscious obstacles that hold people back from finding more meaning and fulfillment in their lives. Through my work with children and adults, I have learned the importance of developing a reflective stance which leads to improved functioning and self-esteem. I believe that growth takes place in the context of significant, nurturing relationships, and view an interactive, therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for personal growth and change.
