I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of independent and clinical experience working with individuals seeking help with the difficulties they face in the progress of their lives.
I specialize in individual personality development, the psychology of interpersonal relationships, and the process of individuation.
My practice perspective is grounded in Analytical Psychology, the theories and practices developed by Carl G. Jung (1875-1961), a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. It is also informed by my training and experience in Object Relations theory, Ego Psychology, and Self Psychology, which are associated psychoanalytic perspectives and compliment a Jungian approach.
I have extensive training and experience in treating affective problems (chronic depression, fear and anxiety, anger and aggression, compulsions, emotion dysregulation, intolerance of distress), relational difficulties, and problems in personal development. I am able to address conflicted and frequently painful internal psychological experience that may aversely affect your ability to love, to work, and to achieve a sense of personal mastery.
My background and on-going interest in the fine arts also shapes my practice. It is the foundation on which my humanistic, exploratory approach to psychological intervention rests.
I maintain an open practice. I welcome everyone without regard to race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
