I offer individual therapy for adults, teenagers, and children. My area of expertise consists of helping with difficulties in social relationships. Such difficulties include finding and sustaining healthy intimacy, healing from a painful break-up or divorce, school-related problems, parent-child and peer conflicts, recovering from major loss, and growing up in difficult circumstances. I am particularly suited to helping those who have cultivated their intellects and creativity but would now like to develop a greater awareness of their emotional world.
My style is warm and engaging. My clinical thinking is largely informed by the psychoanalytic tradition. For me this tradition provides the richest and most sophisticated exploration of how we love, work and play. I attend ongoing consultations with both child and adult analysts. Additionally, my sensibilities have been shaped by a longstanding interest in ancient and modern philosophy, literature, film, skateboarding and a punk rock/DIY ethos.
