About Me

As a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, my goal is to provide you with a safe, confidential, and nonjudgmental space in which you are listened to closely, carefully, and deeply in the context of a relationship of emotional and intellectual attunement.

I approach our work together collaboratively, helping you address issues that can be difficult to confront on your own.  These issues may manifest as feelings of anxiety, depression, or dissatisfaction in relationships and/or career. I help you articulate your thoughts and feelings in an environment of trust and safety. We identify patterns in your life so that you can develop a clearer understanding of your life experiences and develop new, more satisfying ways of relating. I encourage self-reflection and gaining insight, along with productive behavior change. 
Prior to earning my doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I had more than 20 years of business experience, and am well equipped to work with clients on career issues and career change. I specialize in interview coaching, helping clients learn how to present themselves in a positive, polished, articulate, and professional manner.
A published author and editor, I conduct writing and dissertation consultations for writers in all disciplines. I offer you practical strategies for moving forward with your writing, including honing your topic, developing your voice, organizing your time, overcoming perfectionism, and dealing with procrastination.
Professional Appointments:
