I am a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who works with individuals, couples, and facilitates psychodrama groups. A member of the International Psychoanalytical Association, I have practiced in Santa Monica for over twenty years.
Using a collaborative approach, my goal is to understand people, provide a safe space to look at the reality of their lives, help them recognize, incorporate or transform lost parts of themselves and treat themselves and others with more compassion. Assist clients to create more loving relationships, to better enjoy their work and play.
My particular areas of interest include midlife crises, depression, anxiety; issues around the Holocaust, incorporating the spiritual in psychotherapeutic work, and how fairy tales and mythology can assist us live meaningful present-day lives.
I teach at LAISPS and the Saturday Center, have published in professional journals, and presented workshops in many cities in USA and the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
