I offer individual psychotherapy, as well as psychoanalysis. The sessions are 45 minutes in length. We can meet once weekly, or we can meet several times weekly, depending on your interests.
I think of the initial consultation as a “gateway” to finding the right situation for you. An initial consultation with me is free (unless you decide to return and begin therapy with me), and would be used to get some sense of what leads you to seek therapy at this time, and to decide if we are a good match for working together. It is important that you be matched with a therapist with whom you believe you will be able to speak about what matters to you. If either of us thinks you might be better served elsewhere, I would be able to make a referral to other therapists or other resources.
Rather than try to describe my approach to therapy, I recommend that you call for an initial consultation. I will say though, that professionally speaking, doing psychotherapy is my first love. The process of therapy, the conversations that occur in the course of therapy, are uniquely inspiring, and often quite moving, whether we are immersed in the difficult feelings of pain, shame and loss, or whether we are celebratory and joyful.
See "Services for Professionals," below for a therapy group specifically for mental health professionals.

Services for Professionals
I provide case consultation on an as-needed basis.
I am available (often pro-bono) to speak on various topics at community mental health clinics. I am especially interested in speaking on the topic of “whiteness,” that is, on helping white therapists to become more aware of how their whiteness affects their clinical work. I also speak on shame and on emotional process.
