Hello, I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed in CA, OR, WA, and NY. I offer online video teletherapy. I work with men and those AMAB.
Psychologist in Arcata, CA
I believe that anxiety is a biological danger signal that can be amplified by the minds interpretations of events that are not in fact dangerous.
My study of Relational Therapy began with some research work with Otto Kernberg and his interactions with an outpatient with borderline personality organization.
I have studied Psychodynamic Theory since I was an undergraduate when I took a German Literature class where we read Freud in chronological order. My graduate studies had a psychodynamic emphasis.
I have been practicing mindfulness for many years and am particularly fond of the work of Tara Brach, Ph.D. as well as Thich Hat Hanh.
As a part of the queer community myself, I am well-versed in some of the struggles that we face.
Men are also oppressed by toxic masculinity. I like to help men to understand the challenges that the face around emotional understanding and expression.
