Therapy is directed by you. I am here to listen and support you in our dialogues. We can discuss anything and everything. You may want to explore your intimate relationships, struggles, worries, joys, or fantasies. Ultimately, you lead the process of therapy and, together, we will find some of the sources and patterns of thought that may have created obstacles in your life.
I have been described as calm and kind. My approach to our conversation welcomes all of your thoughts and feelings so that I may understand your perspective fully. My stance is non-judgmental. Because of my background in nursing, I have a unique understanding of how physical health may interplay with your emotional life.
I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, a modality that focuses on both who you are as an individual as well as the way you relate to others. Sometimes we do not know why we do the things we do or act how we act, because some active parts of us sit outside our conscious awareness. As we talk through your thoughts, memories, and even your dreams, you will gain greater access to your unconscious mind. This work can grow your conscious awareness, giving you more room to work with difficult thoughts and feelings. We will work together to reach some of your internal processes that may be directing your actions and relationships, sometimes in negative ways.
Typically, I see clients at least once per week for 50 minutes. My office is conveniently located on the subway line, and my space is quiet, ensuring confidentiality and privacy.
Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, I am only seeing clients virtually or by phone at this time.
