Choosing a therapist is an important decision. My goal as your therapist is to help you find healthy ways to engage in life and use your strengths to help understand, uncover, and dismantle what is creating anxiety, depression and other emotional concerns you may find yourself living with. Therapy can help to create an environment to move through the process of self-discovery and self-awareness in a safe way. The treatments I work with have proven to be effective, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness therapy, and EMDR. I believe therapy is foremost, about building a trusting relationship with a qualified person.

I use evidence based approaches (EFT, DBT, CBT, ACT, and Psychodynamic ) from a relational, developmental, and attachment-based perspective.
I believe symptoms are often the body’s way of communicating with us when something's off. Learning to recognize our symptoms as messages to listen to, we start making sense of the chaos, and feel less out of control. I’m committed to helping you get that kind of relief and clarity, so that it becomes easier to explore the roots of what gets you stuck. The therapy I offer is experiential and relational, providing the context to name what needs to heal, process what's overwhelming, build psychological skills and confidence, grow in compassion, strengthen relationships, and find a path forward with greater freedom, meaning, and hope.

I utilize Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and EMDR.
I work primarily with individuals who struggle to feel satisfied in their relationships with others as well as in their relationships to themselves, to their core values and aspirations. I find that relationships, to both ourselves and to others, lie at the root of our psychological distress. If our relationships are strained or absent, then we can easily begin to feel anxious and depressed and fall prey to addictive and compulsive behavior. I work best with clients who want to get a bit below the surface and explore other ways of relating.

Welcome! I take a lifespan developmental approach with my clients, particularly through promoting self-compassion, encouraging the discovery of personal resilience, and helping work through challenges on the pathways of life. My integrative approach is primarily informed by helping the development of insight and accumulation of practical skills for symptom reduction that takes into account the cultural and familial context of your life. Additionally, I also focus my practice on providing psychological assessment/testing for ADHD and learning disabilities, as well as personality and cognitive functioning.

My background is in depth psychology and psychodynamic approaches.
Does any of this sound familiar? Life feels disconnected from meaning, purpose or joy. The same situations keep repeating themselves. Emotional difficulties are getting in the way of relationships or personal growth. These are a few of the situations someone may seek me out for therapy. During the therapeutic process, we will work together to connect underlying factors with your present circumstances. This will work to give you back control of your life and gain freedom from the fears, anxieties and blind spots that have been in the drivers seat.

I do this through a psychodynamic and existential approach.
Because of the hurt I have experienced in my life I have become passionate about sitting with people as they sift through the darkest parts of themselves. I received my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University and have received formal training in Eye Movement Desensitization/Reprocessing (EMDR) and Motivational Interviewing. I balance kindness and directness as a therapist, while incorporating my sense of humor into the relationship. I primarily work with adolescents and adults, and work with a myriad of struggles including grief, trauma, addiction, and attachment issues.

The cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and somatic approaches that I offer, will help you break free from this cycle.
You wake up exhausted, and defeated. High anxiety, racing thoughts and loneliness overshadow every hint of joy in your life. As your energy plummets, small tasks become huge. Just talking seems like a chore. Irritability and exhaustion are a constant battle. Loved ones complain that you are removed and shutdown. You want to let them in, but it’s hard to trust anyone. It’s become impossible to turn off that negative voice in your head that keeps saying you aren’t doing enough. No one understands. Everything triggers you. The past is tied up with the present, your thoughts are dark, and you’re afraid of losing everything.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Encinitas, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
