Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Bio:
My approach to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis attends to your concerns not only in the present moment, but also with attention to their origin and your future health and happiness. In doing, our sessions provide the safety and support to better know, accept, and enjoy yourself.
To do so, I integrate various psychological modalities, such as Jungian awareness, Modern psychology, intersubjectivity, object relations theory, CBT, and Vedic psychology, as relevant and helpful to you. Said more simply: I've assembled quite a toolbox over many years of training and experience. Which tools we use depends on what works for you.
My interest and training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy arose from my combined professional background in the creative arts and a decades-long practice and exploration of meditation. This background is apparent in my specialized work with creative professionals and meditators (often both!).
In keeping with my commitment to ongoing psychoanalytic exploration and study, I am also the director and an instructor of PPSC's one-year certificate program, Clinical Journeys.
