Thank you for visiting.
Whether you are a prospective or current patient or a colleague, this website contains an invitation to learn about psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in general, and the services I offer in particular.
The emotional realm is the source of creativity and the seat of suffering. Psychoanalytic treatment, with its emphasis on an intimate partnership between patient and analyst, offers a means to reduce emotional suffering and enhance emotional growth. Its study offers a method for learning about the human mind.
Psychoanalysis was begun by Sigmund Freud, and in the century since its inception has been elaborated, and at times radicalized by new thinking. Psychoanalytic knowledge is the foundation of all modern dynamic psychotherapies. Unlike other forms of therapy, the beneficial effects of psychoanalytically oriented treatment, once established, have been shown to keep developing, even after the conclusion of the work.
In the following sections you will learn about psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, about my background and credentials for offering these services, and how best to contact me. I look forward to our conversation.
