I serve clients who struggle with long term emotional distress or who have crisis issues in their lives. Clients who are motivated to understand the conscious and unconscious forces and meanings that shape their experience and their relationships to significant others are specially suited to the kind of work I do. I work largely from the perspective of intersubjective psychoanalytic theory and object relations theory. I am an Accredited Practitioner of Mentalization Based Psychotherapy through the British Psychoanalytic Council.
I encourage clients when possible and appropriate to participate both in individual and group therapy in my practice, as I believe this provides greater leverage for change and growth.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana, a Certified Group Psychotherapist, and a National Certified Counselor. Currently, I am Adjunct Faculty in the Postgraduate Program in Group Psychotherapy at the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University. Also, I am a member of the Indianapolis Center for Contemporary Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and a Clinical Member of the American Group Psychotherapy Association. I received my PhD in religion and psychological studies from the University of Chicago in 1982.
