If you are experiencing the common frustration of self-defeating emotions, thoughts and behavior despite considerable motivation and effort to the contrary, psychodynamic therapy can help! This type of therapy aims to increase self-awareness, leading to greater control over problematic patterns. While psychodynamic therapy focuses on the here and now, together we examine your past, if it interferes with your present. I offer this type of therapy to adults, adolescents and children. Whether you are new to therapy or have tried other therapies to no avail, please feel free to contact me for a consult or second opinion, respectively.
