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.

Together we set goals that are meaningful to you! I integrate various modes of therapy including psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, as well as EMDR for trauma reprocessing which can provide relief from past wounds and practical tools that can help you feel better daily.
I offer a free 15-minute zoom session to answer your questions. My aim is to provide a safe & supportive space for clients to explore and process their thoughts and emotions and to find clarity and healing through insight, self-love and compassion. In my practice I often work with individuals struggling with depression and anxiety and couples who are in pain. Often, our current struggles may be the result of trauma that we have suffered in our childhood and with our family of origin. Exploration of the past is the first step in freeing one from rigid thinking and enabling us to live in the moment and to enjoy the present.

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.
