You are looking at this website to address a problem or issue of concern. I'd like to talk with you about your needs to see if I can help.

I am a licensed psychoanalyst, certified hypnotherapist, and certified EMDR practitioner. We can work together in one of these ways or in a combination of them. The important thing is to make sure you get the help you need.


Regarding hypnotherapy, I use this approach to address specific issues such as pain management (with medical approval), smoking, weight loss, and other unwanted behaviors. I also use it to help people struggling with anxiety, anger, stress, overall health and wellness management, and phobias. And finally, I use hypnotherapy to work with trauma, although this may require additional support from the other types of therapy I practice.


When we first meet, I will ask you about your concerns and give you my assessment of the best approach for you. My principle goal is to give you the therapy you need to best address your individual circumstances.


I am the President of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, where I am also a training analyst, supervisor, and instructor. I've been in practice for nearly 20 years so I have the experience to help you to heal and grow.
