Licensed Psychoanalyst and Certified Gestalt Therapist - PhD, LP
Whatever brings you here – whether challenging circumstances or an internal struggle – finding the right support can be daunting. As a gestalt therapist and a cultural anthropologist, I see therapy as an exercise of the possible. My approach aims to expand the horizons of what you’ve come to see as “true” regarding who you are and your prospects for fulfillment. With compassion and curiosity, we will develop awareness of – and gently interrogate – your constructions of yourself, identifying barriers to authentic and nourishing contact. Often formed early in life, these dated templates may stifle growth and meaningful relationships.
While this may sound like an intellectual endeavor, I believe that healing occurs experientially. Through a collaborative dialogue inspired by an embodied-relational approach, we will experiment with new, more enriching ways of relating to yourself and others. Working together, we will create space for needs that have fallen through the cracks of awareness.
In a spirit of acceptance and openness, we may pause to hear the wisdom of your tears, pay heed to silences and notice the quality of our dynamic in the here-and-now. As you grow attuned to the wisdom of your more integrated self, gaining tolerance for what is uncomfortable and painful, I trust you will emerge with a new sense of freedom and serenity.
