While I conceptualize from a psychodynamic lens and believe each of our histories shapes who we are, I practice from an integrative approach weaving in relational, CBT, ACT, self-compassion, and mindfulness practices into therapy.
Maybe you’re feeling stuck, anxious, or like something’s missing. It can be scary to acknowledge these feelings and I’m here to sit with you as you explore and answer the tough questions, process the painful emotions, and empower yourself to take steps toward a more fulfilling life. Even if you feel lost, I’m here to remind you of your strengths, to help you quiet down that inner critic, and to authentically connect with yourself and with others.

Do you find yourself thinking about your relationship more often than not? Maybe you find yourself saying, "How did we get here? I can’t do this anymore. We need to change or else…" You wonder if your marriage can be saved...if you want to marry at all...if you should even stay in this relationship. Everyone else's relationship seems easier than yours. No one would understand, if you told them what you're going through. Your relationship feels like a struggle to even be in, right now. Conflict, confusion and discomfort seem like the norm, not the exception.

FAQ: How can you help me when nothing I do seems to work? Generally we try to do everything we can to fix a problem. Then there comes a time when we run out of ideas. That’s where therapy can come into play. But everyone says I’m not trying hard enough and I am just trying to get someone to tell me what to do. Could that be true? ​Both you and I know no one has tried harder than you. Besides who can determine how hard is hard? And honestly, a good therapist doesn’t tell you what to do, they help you problem solve. I need help managing my anxiety and depression. Can you help me with that? ​ Yes. I help you to find ways

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.
