About My Clients

I have a special passion for working with artists and creative professionals as they wrestle with fears, fantasies, depressions, manias, and all the challenges not only of making art but of making a living through art. I also work with couples of all stripes and with patients who are, like me, part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

My Background and Approach

The depth work of psychoanalytic therapy offers us repeated opportunities to grieve losses, honor fears, and understand traumas. All of which will help you to become more alive to your immediate experience — to flow more freely. I strive to provide for my clients a safe space in which to explore and express frustrations and longings, traumas and dreams, fears and desires. In seeking therapy, you're making the courageous choice to declare, "I want to live a better life." It's an act of strength, not weakness, to invite someone along on that journey. This is also the raw material of couples therapy. When couples make the brave decision to seek help, they almost always present with the same complaint: communication has eroded. In my conception, communication isn't the problem; it's a symptom of the problem. Together we will help you understand the moment-to-moment emotional truth of your cycles of conflict so you can experiment with new ways of reaching one another.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
