My Approach

I approach emotional issues, such as depression, anxiety, and grief in a collaborative way; weaving together psychoanalytic thinking, mindfulness, mind-body integration, and attachment theory. My approach is very interactive- We will explore your past while always remaining cognizant of the present. I have been called a ‘Zen-Psychoanalyst,’ due to my belief that this moment is where we need to be to connect with and heal the wounds of the past- which allows you to live to your fullest and most creative potential.
