My primary area of practice is individual psychotherapy where I work with adults and adolescents. I also work with couples and families to help them seek solutions for their specific problems.
I have extensive training and experience in Psychodynamic and Jungian psychotherapeutic approaches. In addition, I have broad training in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Humanistic (Rogerian), and Family Systems models of psychotherapy.
I treat many areas of emotional problems (see list below). The most frequent problems I see include anxiety spectrum disorders, depression, relational problems, problems in adolescence, dysfunctional personality patterns, and issues of Individuation.

Often patients benefit from a more comprehensive approach to their problems. I work with a diverse group of skilled professionals to whom I may refer patients for additional specialized treatment.

Corporate and Consulting Background
In addition to my clinical background, I also have broad experience working in family corporations, specifically in areas of investment management and entrepreneurship. This experience makes me sensitive to the varied types of emotional problems that manifest in family companies, as well as having an idea of possible solutions for these problems. Moreover, my own shift in vocation from investment management to psychology provides me an understanding of how life transitions can be difficult yet necessary periods in one’s life.
