I believe the relationship between therapist and patient is at the heart of the process of healing and growth. This approach reflects contemporary psychoanalytic theory which values formative patterns of relationship, including relationship with our own interior and with primary others from birth. My approach also values the role of the unconscious and I have a healthy appreciation for complex dynamics that may contribute to present-day frustration and unhappiness. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy offers a means toward lasting, substantial change.
Further, I bring existential and humanist perspectives along with skill and sensitivity in spiritually-integrated psychotherapy. I'm open to working with people who identify as non-practicing, agnostic, and atheist, as well as people of all spiritual traditions and practices,
