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.

  The developmental nature of one's life is encompassed within my perspective on the psychoanalytic process. Through our communication, we work toward the discovery of one’s independence, creativity, and individuality - becoming a person through psychoanalysis. One aim of this process is to help people live more fully in the present – escaping the anchors and distortions of the past.



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
