About

I am a pre-licensed psychoanalyst under supervision, training at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research; and have a professional background in art and higher education. Combined, my own experiences give me a sensitivity to the particular challenges faced by people in creative fields.

Inner conflicts regarding work, sexuality, or relationship dynamics can sometimes result in us feeling stuck, frustrated, or overwhelmed. Suffering in these ways can lead to feeling isolated, unmotivated, or anxious, lacking or even overwhelmed with energy, and above all, at a loss as to the root causes of these distressing feelings. Through talk therapy, we can work together to facilitate a creative understanding of your thought and emotional patterns that inhibit you or cause you pain.

I work in a psychoanalytically informed psychodynamic therapy model that seeks to meet you in your own unique situation and your own way of seeing and experiencing the world and your self. My non-judgmental approach to psychotherapy, which respects and embraces difference, will eventually diminish the suffering experienced in anxiety and depression.

FAQ’s
How long is a session? Are you conducting in person sessions?

The length of psychotherapy session is either 45 minutes or 50 minutes. Please discuss this with your therapist, but both arrangements are acceptable.

We offer both—in-person, and virtual treatment. Please discuss your preference with your therapist.

How often should I see my therapist?

The frequency of work is determined between you and your therapist. However, we do believe a higher frequency has an important effect on the outcome of the treatment. Most of our therapists work with their patients at more than once-a-week frequency in psychotherapy. However, if you are in psychoanalytic treatment, the frequency is at least 4 times (sometimes we offer 3 times) a week.

How long does the therapy last?

Believe it or not, this is by far the most common question we are asked. There is a famous quote from Freud, “Our answer is like the answer given by the Philosopher to the Wayfarer in Aesop's fable. When the Wayfarer asked how long a journey lay ahead, the Philosopher merely answered ‘Walk!’” The duration of treatment depends on the individual circumstances. Therefore, he says, “[T]he question as to the probable duration of a treatment is almost unanswerable.” At TheraBridge we hold true to Freud’s word, “Walk!” We help our patients walk the path and over the bridge towards a future where new memories and new experiences bring happiness and joy.

Is my information confidential?

Yes, your information is kept confidential. In case we need to coordinate care with other medical professionals including your psychiatrist, we will obtain your consent, though the exchange of patient information amongst medical providers is considered HIPAA compliant.

What kind of therapy do you provide?

At TheraBridge, all our clinicians are trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
