I work from a Psychodynamic and relational orientation often pulling in interventions from a more cognitive and integrative approach.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I help people create meaningful change in their lives. My approach is self empowering and compassionate with a sensitivity to cultural differences and social justice. My strength as a therapist is in making deep connections with people, creating a sense of safety and helping clients identify and confront their issues. My personality style is warm, sincere, and down to earth. Those who see me describe me as someone who is "caring, warm, a great listener, interactive, and offers honest insightful feedback."

Are you in need of support, empathy, understanding, patience, and the need to make changes? Life is so uncertain with so many struggles, difficulties and pain. Life is also full of opportunity, beauty, joy and love. Sometimes help is needed to develop coping skills to deal with life's challenges and to embrace your place of peace. Every individual is unique and has the power of choice. Finding the balance between the duality of life is worth the time and effort to enjoy an inner peace. If you are looking for help to find your balance in life and making positive choices, please contact me

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Lafayette, 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.
