A professional home for members of the Chicago psychoanalytic community
I have been practicing psychotherapy for about 30 years, and am currently a Candidate at the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute. I work with a broad cross-section of people around a range of issues, including attachment and event trauma, struggles with creative processes, and the impact of marginalized/stigmatized identities as well as mood disorders, problems with self-esteem, and relationship issues.
My work is based in psychoanalytic theories, especially contemporary Self Psychology, Intersubjectivity, and Relational Analysis and is informed by feminism and queer theory. But each treatment is shaped by the two people sitting together, mutually engaged in a process of discovery and creativity. moving toward a continually deeper and fuller understanding of the person coming for help–and of what it means to be human.
