“It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taughtabout myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.” - James Baldwin
In my private practice, I successfully treat Adults, Couples, Youth & Families by helping them unearth, develop and implement the more accurate perception of themSelves. The adult Self demanded in order to find, experience and tolerate personal and professional success.
Psychotherapy is a leap of faith in your Self and toward your true self. By looking at your self in a way that is empathic & honest, and allowing me to reflect back to you what it's like to be in relationship with you, you can leave the experience with an authentic perspective of you. You - from Your Point of YOU.

I have a deep interest in the successful treatment symptoms of trauma such as Infidelity, substance abuse and other ways in which we cope with life stressors or feelings of inadequacy which as a Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic Psychotherapist I see as coming from our childhood selves.
. . .
Lies we tell ourSelves like accepting a false Self narrative or a clinical diagnosis as an identify perpetuates a Self- loathing narrative in need of up rooting!

Psychodynamic therapy has its roots in psychoanalysis, the long-term "talking cure." Like psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy recognizes that the relationships and circumstances of early life continue to affect people as adults, that human behavior results from unconscious as well as conscious or rational motives, and that the act of talking about problems can help people find ways to solve them or at least to bear them.

Although modern therapists frequently question the distinction, it is useful to note that psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis differ in some ways. During psychoanalysis, patients generally attend meetings three to five days a week, whereas in psychodynamic therapy, a patient typically sees a therapist once or twice a week.
Thus the intensity of the therapeutic relationship is greater in psychoanalysis. Both psychoanalysis and the long-term form of psychodynamic therapy may be conducted in an open-ended manner, over many years, with the patient and therapist/analyst taking as much time as they need to decide about the duration of treatment.
Short-term treatment with psychodynamic therapy, in contrast, is time-limited and usually lasts less than six months.
