I have specialized training in psychodynamic therapy and adult psychoanalysis and work with adolescents, adults, couples and families.
People seek a psychotherapist because they are experiencing emotional distress, often caused by issues related to relationships, family, marital problems, stress, and general dissatisfaction with one's life or work. My job as a psychologist is to find a path leading to both relief of these symptoms and to an understanding of oneself, which together provide for both short term and long term relief from these states. I do this by providing a non-judgmental and supportive therapeutic environment which promotes a deeper understanding and exploration of oneself, with the belief that this increased self-awareness ultimately leads to positive changes and better coping skills.

Psychologist, PsyD
Verified
I primarily practice from a relational psychodynamic orientation, while integrating aspects from other modalities such as DBT, CBT, and ACT based on each client's unique presenting problems.
I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family-of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.

I tailor my practice to each person's unique needs drawing upon psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches.
Because each person is different, there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy. Ultimately, the right therapist can help you develop a greater sense of peace and self-fulfillment. So it is important to choose someone with whom you feel safe and comfortable; someone who will listen, empathize, and respect your needs; and someone with the skills necessary to support you in reaching your goals. In the process, you will acquire greater self-awareness, and learn to cope more effectively with life issues. This is my approach to therapy. I hope I will be able to help you.

I primarily work from Rogerian, client-centered, and psychodynamic orientations.
Authentic communication and connection nourishes our essence. Being in tune with our deeper self helps us stay centered, feeling sure and confident of who we are. At times our head may spin from anxiety-provoking events or situations. We can learn to cope and self-regulate by getting in touch with our self in different ways. Nourishing our essence gives us a solid sense of self-worth, helping us feel safe and secure in the universe allowing us to take ownership of our journey through life, whether dealing with addiction, depression, anxiety, or relationships we can learn to live in the solution.

Hello and Welcome. I have over a decade of practice in individual, adolescent, and couples therapy.

My passion is to help you breathe freely; experiencing relief, resilience, self-compassion, and increased emotional freedom.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in La Jolla, 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.
