The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.

MORE ABOUT ME
I am a clinical psychologist who has been in private practice since 2000. I work only with adult individuals, 20 years and older, for long- and short-term psychotherapy. Although I am eclectic in my approach, my training is psychodynamically and psychoanalytically-based. In plain language, this means I firmly believe that the exploration of the unconscious and the need to dig deeper is central to the success of therapy; in order to truly shift, we need to explore and inspect our unconscious. Until we get to know ourselves better, we are all essentially like puppets on strings with the power to implement only “cosmetic” changes to how we function and feel.
As a clinical psychologist I am conversational and I believe in speaking my mind openly and honestly. I see therapy as a dialogue between patient and therapist where both work together in an effort to discover what is going on. Therapy is a relationship, regardless of whether it takes place for just one month or over the course of many years. I am therefore selective about who I work with and I encourage you, the potential patient, to be the same. I regard the first session as a mutual assessment of one another to make sure that the ‘fit’ works well for both of us.
