In addition to my psychoanalytic background, my training and education revolves around existential, phenomenological, and depth oriented approaches to psychotherapy. I approach therapy as an excerise in devotion, curiosity, and paradox: we all are striving, often as hard as we can, to solve life's problems, move past stumbling blocks, and grow in our senses of meaning and intentionality, yet we all also fall short in these practices, often getting in our own way, hitting up against old patterns, or finding ourselves unable to make sense of the things that have happened to us. In my practice, I work to help clients untangle these paradoxes, and to see for themselves the themes of their lives and the ways in which they would prefer to live.
I specialize in working with issues related to gender and sexuality, particularly those related to trans identity, gender identity, and gender variance. I think analytic sensibilities are particularly important when working with trans populations, and that trans people are well suited to and thoroughly deserving of the depth and complexity of care that psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy afford.
