I am a psychologist in private practice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Everyone that comes to therapy is seeking a second chance. You and I create a time, place, and space for you to integrate painful feelings that have prevented you from living, working, and loving in a fulfilling and satisfying way.
The work I do can help those who have not been helped by prior psychotherapy.
Therapy Begins … as I listen and we consider what is troubling you,and what prompted your inquiry.
Therapy continues … with consideration of your present life, hopes, dreams, and relationships. We discuss what you want to get from your therapy process. Your experience becomes more full as we view the present through the lens of your relationships in your past, and in our therapeutic alliance.
Change & Growth … are possible. I help people experience themselves, their life and work more fully. It is not easy to begin, however, it gradually becomes easier and usually it is a relief after that. With the necessary ingredients, I can help you facilitate change and I work with you on what is getting in the way.
Please link to “Person-Focused Problems” to review a list of some of the kinds of presenting problems I help you to address. I work with adults who are anxious, depressed and uncomfortable or dissatisfied, in work or relationships. They are curious about themselves, reflective and motivated to come to therapy.
I provide work from a variety of theoretical orientations and have an expertise in psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy & 21st century psychoanalysis. As a psychoanalyst, I provide consultation to, teach, and mentor mental health providers and psychiatric residents.
