I offer an initial telephone consultation at no charge. You can find out more about the psychoanalytic process and get a sense of who I am.  In our conversation we can determine what could be helpful.  

    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. 



I qualified in psychoanalysis with Anna Freud and her colleagues at the Hampstead Clinic in London (Now The Anna Freud Centre)

A sign of health in the mind is the ability of one individual to enter imaginatively and accurately into the thoughts and feelings and hopes and fears of another person; also to allow the other person to do the same to us…when we are face to face with a man, woman, or child in our specialty, we are reduced to two human beings in equal status.

D.W. Winnicott (1970)
