Licensed Psychologist and Psychoanalyst

For those of you who are exploring the possibility of seeking psychotherapy but are not yet certain about whether or not to take that step, I hope to provide information here that will help you in your process of making that decision. If you already know you want therapy and are seeking a therapist, I hope to help you decide whether or not I seem like a good fit for you and your particular needs at this time. 

Going to psychotherapy can be a very difficult thing to do.  It often involves revealing deeply personal things about yourself to someone you don't know.  You also don't know if that person is skillful or not or if they can help you or not.  When the therapist and patient are a good match, psychotherapy has the potential to be deeply life changing.  I hope the information here can help you find that match.
