More Info: 
As a conservatory-trained musician, I'm especially interested in creativity, self-expression, and self-elaboration as important aspects of the therapeutic process, and of the patient's way of finding a safe and coherent sense of identity. I often work with artists and gifted children and adults, and I find that their gifts are frequently both a window into their trauma and a powerful aspect of the integrative process of dreaming the self into being. I'm also particularly interested in dissociative disorders, and specialize in working with patients with DID; my background includes training in specialized treatment for these patients. My work with these patients integrates both psychoanalytic and family systems work, informed by structural dissociation theory.
