Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I began my psychotherapy practice in 1986. I work with individual adults, couples and families. My clinical focus is on working with deeply embedded defenses and healing the earliest psychic and relational wounds. I have been a clinician in Psychoanalytic infant observation studying infant development, the formation of parent/infant relationships, infantile states, primitive communication and early trauma through direct observation of infants and their families. I have been a clinical supervisor of therapists-in-training for fifteen years. I teach seminars for psychotherapy trainees and interns on such topics as dreams, relational trauma, impasses and working with the infant-self in adult patients. I have provided psychotherapy at City College of San Francisco and the University of California, San Francisco in the post-baccalaureate programs. I lead a case conference and study group for early career psychotherapists in San Francisco. I am the co-developer and co-chair of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis Seasoned Clinicians Extension Program. I am a clinical community member of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis, the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.
