Do you ever find yourself at odds with yourself? I work best with people who feel internally conflicted about one or many aspects of life, whether in self esteem, relationships and love, artistic and professional achievements, or inexplicable habits and compulsions. If you are afraid of yourself, or what you might be holding on to internally, I offer a starkly nonjudgmental space to say *anything* that comes to mind. I accept parts of you that you may not.
Internet Addiction encompasses the compulsive use of games, pornography, shopping, and media, and also the difficulties of living in hybrid/virtual environments that over-expose our lives in ways we cannot control. Integrating what you do and who you are online is part of my therapeutic technique.
I work with clients exploring their gender identities and working on questions about their self-image and embodiment. I believe gender is not secondary to personality, but pervades how we think, act, love, and operate in the social order.
Our greatest vulnerabilities lie with our major relationships. My psychoanalytic approach to therapy is extremely well-suited to working with relationship, marriage, and family issues. I support clients in understanding relationship issues at the root and problem-solving in the present.
