About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychoanalytic therapist, which means using language to understand your beliefs about yourself and your place in the world. But where the classic notion of the analyst is one who is mostly silent - an experience I myself have found to be rather isolating - I prefer something more like a conversation. I tend toward being direct and saying what I think is happening rather than maintaining a mysterious silence.

I feel I can work with anyone. In my view, the key requirement for someone seeking therapy is curiosity about the self. Yet, if I had to choose a speciality it would be helping patients with the following presentations:

* Depression

* Anxiety

* Lacking a sense of direction

* Some personal relations leave a bitter taste in the mouth

* Struggle to identify what will make you happy

* Self-critical

Therapy can help us all to live lighter, and to feel more comfortable in our own skin. I know this to be possible. I have seen it work over the five years I have spent in private practice. Why wait to feel better?
