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 take this opportunity to determine what could be helpful.

The Ensō  image shown above (incomplete circle) symbolizes the developmental nature and movement of our lives, derived from the world view of wabi-sabi.  Enlightenment and strength are depicted through this symbolization, as well as the beauty of imperfection.


 In a similar fashion, kintsugi – a Japanese art form of repairing broken pottery – preserves the history of the object, and reclaims its importance. 


These principles reflect my perspective on the psychoanalytic process – a developmental viewpoint that encompasses the rediscovery of one’s freedom, creativity and individuality – in becoming a person through psychoanalysis.    


Words are...our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.
