I use cognitive behavioral, relational and psychoanalytic oriented psychotherapy in my work.
Adolescence can be a very challenging time for teens and their families. Although developmentally it is a particularly wonderful time of exploration and curiosity for teens, sometimes things do not go as expected. Individual adolescent therapy and sessions incorporating parents and /or families can make this time much easier to negotiate. I see primarily adolescents, and often incorporate parents and families into treatment planning. Presenting issues may range from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and eating disorders where I hold additional certifications and trainings. I also see adults with persisting eating issues.

Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in.

You may be educated, even outwardly successful, but struggle to feel good about yourself, have difficulties with close relationships or just want more out of life. I believe it's human to struggle and that we all can benefit from self exploration. You stand to gain, and so does your partner, children, friends, even co-workers when you're bringing more of your best self to the game. My style is active and I bring humor and compassion to help you develop solutions as well as grow from your struggles. A seasoned therapist, my approach is flexible and practical, tailored to meet your needs. I'm LGBTQIA sensitive and welcoming.

While your relational style helped you to navigate your childhood, you, like many people, may feel frustrated by painful life-long patterns of relating (to yourself and others) which seem to repeat. I empathize with this frustration and work with you to more deeply understand yourself so that you can enact real and lasting change.

I am a licensed psychologist who sees individuals, couples and families for more than 20 years. My goal is to help patients live psychologically healthier and more fulfilling lives. My patients want to remove obstacles and recover hope, purpose and themselves. I help explore deeper issues and patterns underlying persistent unhappiness, as well as help navigate life transitions that are overwhelming. Adjusting to uncertainty, new beginnings, endings, isolation, grief, and constantly changing conditions are challenging and can cause us to get stuck. I can help unstick.

Lasting change occurs in therapy when one identifies and works through their concerns that have been outside their awareness. I develop a non-judgmental, intimate working alliance with my clients, in order to facilitate this self-understanding, both emotionally and intellectually. Such work fosters growth and creative responses to long standing difficulties in relationship to one's self and others. In return for investing themselves fully, my clients are offered the freedom to be more completely who they are, while also being able to maintain close and fulfilling relationships.

Any scary event or even a medical diagnosis can wreak havoc & any daily routine is quickly found unmanageable. If the physical body fails you, it affects your mood. If emotions are out of wack, it affects your health. Either way, you deserve to feel in control and you can reclaim control. The goal is to highlight your strengths and minimize or eliminate any obstacles to healthy wellness. A direct benefit of engaging in effective help elevates your protective factors against emotional decay now a known correlate with disease. Together we can restore a sense of control, balance, and develop your future goals. You deserve to be happy.

I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life.

Therapy only works when there is a "sense of connection". Research discovered that for therapy to be successful, the client needed to have a feeling of connection. There are two parts to that: 1. You feel like the therapist really knows what they are doing. 2. You feel like the therapist REALLY gets who you are. For me, the art in therapy is the ability to listen between the lines to be able to understand the nuances that make you, you. You should know in the first session whether the therapist is the right fit for you.

I am currently only doing telehealth: doxy.me/tinachasemft. Life presents us with emotional challenges, which can deeply affect us. It might be the death of someone we dearly love; a loved one's life-threatening diagnosis; marital issues; a painful divorce; an emotionally-challenging late-in life “gray divorce.” You may be feeling sad, lonely, scared, betrayed, or not wanting to face another day. You could be the parent of a child having difficult feelings, or who is resisting seeing one of his/her parents. These times challenge you at your deepest core when you are the most vulnerable, and can make life feel too hard to bear.

My approach is psychodynamic, psychoanalytic , relational, respectful and compassionate.
Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears.

My professional affiliations: I am a supervising and training analyst of the German Psychoanalytic Association (DPV), as well as a member of the International Psychoanalytic Association and the American Psychoanalytic Association.
Perhaps you have some symptom that's bothering you: writer's cramp, an embarrassing blushing problem, relationship or sexual difficulties, an eating disorder, a problem with anger, or perhaps you have debilitating anxiety attacks. Or you simply are unhappy, depressed and dissatisfied with your life, even though you are relatively successful. The list of possible symptoms is endless. As a psychoanalyst, I can assist you on the classic and still the most adventurous road to relief: the search for self-understanding. Also, should you need it, I offer short-term counseling and couples therapy.

In addition to customary training, I've completed advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and teach courses on it and other subjects including the relevance of Eastern perspectives to psychological function.
Psychotherapy can be a powerful means of finding your ground to live out your potential, which can be triggered by suffering. I offer support in seeking meaning and assistance in growth in the face of challenges. Compassion and understanding can be powerful tools for facing conflicts that are beyond your current understanding. I work with adults using psychodynamic and transpersonal frameworks.

Stuck? Lonely? Overwhelmed? Struggling to find balance? You are not alone! Our time together could be a great way to get unstuck, build resilience, and open to more intimacy and fulfillment. Therapy is a co-creative, generative relationship, held within a container of safety. I am a fellow traveler, not an aloof expert, and we will shift and grow together.

Psychoanalytic Therapists
Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy. The client learns what conscious and unconscious wishes drive their patterns of thinking and behavior on the theory that, by making the unconscious conscious, they will make more educated choices over how they think and act.
