I take an active role in providing assessment, training, and coaching. Offering supervision as well as private consultation. I see our work as partners whether it is individual, couples or group psychotherapy and I blend my experience as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst.

Short- and long-term therapy for children, adults and seniors, working through patterns that prevent them from growing and reaching their full potential. I help individuals with long-term personality issues and those dealing with bipolar disorder, guilt and shame related issues, depression, anxiety, and psychotic thought processes. I am interest in exploring how interpersonal relationships have impacted an individual’s emotional development, as well as how previous relational experiences are affecting their current relationships.

Psychological assessments: personality, cognitive, and neuropsychological assessments to help arrive at hypotheses about a client’s behavior, personality and capabilities. Based on assessment results, I can develop and apply effective therapeutic treatment plans and interventions.

I have worked in the corporate world and offer education on depression, stress, communication skills and anger management.  I have my experience as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst blends well working with management and teams to plan and implement changes in both work practices and office environment behaviors.
