When the joy of doubt goes and people are gripped by certainty they become mad.

“it takes great courage to become who you really are - ee cummings. Psychotherapy / psychoanalysis means attending to the soul; paying attention to the essential aspects of what it is to be human. Meaningful patterns emerge from apparent chaos. Automatic responses based on past experiences give way to conscious choice. Old directives about what you "should" and "ought" to be fade before the dawning awareness of who you are and who you are meant to be. Life is no longer a seemingly endless series of problems to be solved. Instead, living can become a wondrous journey to be passionately embraced.

The analytic process creates an environment in which we come to understand and appreciate your internal world. I draw upon years of extensive clinical experience and academic learning, both in Berkeley, CA and in Minneapolis, MN. I am a graduate psychoanalyst and practice both psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.

I offer professional insight, a sense of humor and a safe and supportive place to experience yourself with compassion and understanding. I see patients a minimum of once a week. I can bill your insurance company. I am an out-of-network provider.”
