I offer an initial consultation at no charge. You can find out more about the psychoanalytic process and get a sense of who I am. Together, we can use this opportunity to determine what could be helpful.
In the therapeutic consultation...the client begins to feel that understanding may perhaps be available and that communication at a deep level may become possible. Winnicott, 1971
My view of the psychoanalytic process encompasses the developmental nature of our life - of our present and past experiences. Through our communication, we work toward the discovery of one’s independence, creativity, and individuality - that is, becoming a person.
Words are...our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.

The limits of thought are not so much set from outside, by the fullness or poverty of experiences that meet the mind, as from within, by the power of conception, the wealth of formulative notions with which the mind meets experiences. Most new discoveries are suddenly-seen things that were always there. A new idea is a light that illuminates presences which simply had no form for us before the light fell on them. We turn the light here, there, and everywhere, and the limits of thought recede before it. Susanne K. Langer
