About Me

To be a truly helpful therapist to you in this journey together I provide clear guidance and an emotionally safe place to explore your hidden and possibly painful feelings and thoughts. I know a great deal about the workings of the interior world, and I am comfortable with the often surprising strength of fear, anger, and feelings we can carry there. I am deeply curious about your personal experience and I work to see and hear you from your vantage point.

I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology in 1979. In 1992 I completed my post-doctoral work in psychoanalysis; the in depth study of development and personality. My focus of study is on how we weave together our experiences with relationships into our unique selves, and how a new therapy relationship can reweave some of our fibers. I have been in private practice since 1980, and through these years have in a deep, respectful and helpful way heard the unique experience of many different people.

Fees and Insurance
   My fee is $175 for a 50 minute session for individuals and couples. I offer some reduced fees, however availability is limited. I do bill medical insurance companies.


If you would like to make an appointment or have any questions please contact me. My voice mail is confidential and answered only by me. I will call you personally to discuss your questions and arrange for an appointment if you want to do this. In our first meeting we will discuss your goals and wishes and decide together how best to proceed.
