You may be considering therapy. Therapy can be an experience of healing and growth. I listen carefully and deeply to you and together we create a safe space for exploring your inner world. Being human is often difficult and we sometimes bring with us old patterns that no longer serve us well. The experience of the presence of a trusted person, who is attuned and receptive, brings with it the possibility of a more compassionate, deeper, understanding of yourself. Internal capacities whose development were interfered with can now develop.
My extensive training in psychotherapy and over 30 years of clinical experience as a psychiatrist bring a depth of knowledge to helping you. I have a deep conviction that people can change and grow, and have witnessed such change many times. I am trained as a psychoanalyst as well as a psychiatrist and listen from multiple vantage points. As a psychiatrist, I am able to look for the possibility of a biologic process underlying present difficulties and can prescribe medication if this is needed.
