Few are the opportunities in modern life to ask the important questions.
Psychotherapy is one such opportunity. It provides a crucial space to identify and transform our suffering into greater openness and appreciation for ourselves and others.
I offer psychoanalytically-informed psychotherapy to teens, adults, and elders. If you are seeking relief from emotional distress or troubling relationships, or simply desire a deeper awareness of your self and your mind, I want to hold space for your exploration.
I am a registered associate psychotherapist in the state of Oregon. I grew up in the greater Los Angeles area. For as long as I can remember, I have harbored a distinctive interest in the transformation of emotional and physical pain.
A lover of language and expression, I earned degrees in philosophy and psychology, all the way up to a doctorate from the University of West Georgia. My dissertation looks at the Internet as a social and cultural engine for upending our speech, our relationship to needs and their satisfaction, and how we understand our interpersonal relationships.
I am known to friends and family as an unflinching optimist in the capacity of the human spirit to persist in the face of challenges and obstacles, and most of all, to enjoy life.
