About

Through psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, we can work together to understand your issues and ease your suffering and pain.

I offer non-judgmental, anti-racist, and LBGTQ+ affirmative mental health care that will help you explore your internal world, find the roots of your problems, and gain insight about your past and present in order to help improve your mood and behaviors in the future.

I have studied psychoanalytic theory and clinical psychoanalysis at The New School for Social Research and the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. I look forward to applying my knowledge in our work together.

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.
