By using CBT, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic , and Humanistic approach, I can help you navigate life's ups and downs and shift patterns, thoughts, and behaviors.
Do you ever struggle with feeling like you’re not enough? Do you feel like you have to prove yourself? Do you feel stuck and triggered by childhood trauma? The symptoms of trauma include anxiety, depression, high conflict relationships, occupational impairment, addiction, and much more. I believe therapy can help you develop a more self-awareness and actionable plan to alleviate these symptoms. I specialized in working with people who are willing to explore past, present, and future challenges and to find tools for personal growth.

My approach includes theories that look to the past, present and future as I guide from psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-oriented approaches that help find your inner strengths and resilience.
Therapy doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy. Therapy becomes an experience and journey about who YOU are and where YOU want to go. Is something standing in the way? Are you stuck in repetitive patterns or plagued by underlying issues? Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.

Most of us go through difficult periods in our lives where we feel overwhelmed, alone, and confused. Sometimes, inevitable events in life, even happy ones, like starting a relationship, going off to college, or retirement, expose the wounds and memories from a recent or distant past that make the current situation painful and unbearable. While we survive those situations and adapt to the new realities of our circumstances, psychotherapy, specifically psychodynamic psychotherapy uses these moments as opportunities for a path for self-discovery and a chance to reevaluate our priorities and find meaning and purpose in our lives.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, 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.
