Born and raised in New York, I have been working in the field of psychoanalysis for 14 years. I began studying and researching psychoanalysis academically in 2002. In 2005 I earned a master's in Philosophy and Psychoanalysis from the University of Essex, and in 2014 I earned a doctorate in the History of Consciousness at the University of California Santa Cruz, with a dissertation on psychoanalysis, specifically focusing on the question of language and the representation of the clinical situation in psychoanalytic writing.
My scholarly work on psychoanalysis led me to become interested in clinical practice. I started training as a psychoanalyst in 2011 at the Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis in Berkeley, California. After moving to Europe, I continued my clinical training in Dublin at the School of Psychotherapy at St. Vincent's University Hospital, University College Dublin. This renowned program offers the unique opportunity to train in psychoanalysis in the context of a psychiatric hospital. I completed my theoretical and practical training there and was awarded a Master of Science (MSc) in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, with first-class honors, in October, 2016. I am a member of the Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland (APPI) and the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP).
Having made Munich my home over the last year, I offer psychoanalysis in English to people from all nationalities, backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, and age groups. I provide a confidential and comfortable space where anyone can speak freely about their thoughts and problems in order to explore the underlying patterns that shape their lived experience.
