"Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength"

The majority of my clients attend individual sessions one to two times per week. Psychotherapy is most effective on a weekly basis. Intensive treatment is more effective and gets faster results. Meeting less than once a week is considered “supportive” psychotherapy. Supportive psychotherapy can help maintain the progress you have already accomplished.



I am a graduate of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis. 

I provide intensive treatment for clients who find that once or twice a week therapy is inadequate for reaching their treatment goals. Psychoanalysis consists of meeting multiple times a week for as long as it takes to meet your goals. The rewards of such treatment are helping clients to finally break through long-standing difficult issues to have a much more fulfilled life.

Most couples are already in crisis by the time they reach my office. Therapy is often “last ditch” effort.  The couple works to identify their individual and mutual dynamics that are contributing to the challenges of the couple. Once those dynamics are identified, the couple can deepen their commitment and connection towards mutual empathy and positive change.
