It takes courage to begin therapy. Feeling stuck, depressed or anxious, looking for clarity on how to move forward? My relational, psychodynamic approach helps us to connect empathically with your deeper needs, hopes and concerns. I encourage clients to build on their inherent strengths & acknowledge ways they may be impeding their own progress. My hope is to help you understand why you encounter the same kinds of frustrating roadblocks, and how you might make greater room in your life for more satisfying outcomes; while increased self-awareness doesn't guarantee change. it can open the door to new real & unimagined possibilities.

My psychodynamic training, Jungian perspectives, my specializiation in Co-dependency and 12 Steps programs make me a more knowledgable Psychotherapist.
Congratulations on taking the FIRST courageous step toward dealing with your PAIN that is no longer working for you; or perhaps you like to grow and learn more about yourself; or you want to achieve HEALING from grief/loss related to major life changes. Painful symptoms related to trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, or relational issues are tough to tackle by yourself. Understanding and dealing with addiction ( that could be generational) and facing feelings of blame shame guilt denial anger, and depression ALL by yourself is hard. By giving a non-judgmental and an empathetic therapist a CHANCE and Therapy time, change IS possible.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
