My many years of practicing as a psychoanalyst have shown me that getting to the root of the problem is the surest way of ensuring inner growth and lasting change.
The work that I do with my patients is deep work, aimed at identifying and addressing the deep fractures, which may originate from early in life, that can create long-term limitations to an individual’s ability to live fully.
My goal is always to empower my patients, and to help them break free from those deep wounds that are holding them back, equipping them to live more meaningful and satisfying lives.
I always had the gift of empathy. When I was 10 years old, I found that adults felt comfortable telling me their life stories. Apparently I’ve always had the ability to empathize with others and understand them.
I am utterly dedicated to what I do, and I am constantly reading, learning, and striving to understand the nature of the human experience from many different schools of thought. This has enabled me to understand people in the deepest possible way in all of their complexity.

The work I do with my patients is deep work. In my view, a symptom is the expression of a deeper problem – for true healing to happen, we must get to the root of what is wrong.
