Do you find yourself having a difficult time coping with anxiety, depression, and trauma? Do you have a hard time communicating and setting boundaries with others? Life is full of obstacles and hardships that may be difficult to overcome without the right tools, resources, and, guidance leading to the manifestation of these symptoms. I specialize in working with adults, couples, and adolescents using a Psychodynamic approach to explore unconscious thoughts and behaviors.

I specialize in psychodynamic therapy which focuses on addressing unconscious feelings and thoughts that effect our emotions, behavior, and relationships in various ways.
Taking the first step toward getting help is the hardest part and I understand that. I have overcome many obstacles in life and am grateful to now be in a position to help others. I focus on providing a safe environment in order to help you speak freely, share your story, ask any questions, and face all issues that arise. I am open-minded, nonjudgemental, and eclectic in my approach. In beginning this inquiry, today you are one step closer to finding answers and solutions. Whether you are feeling down, anxious, confused, have relationship issues, or just want to grow emotionally and learn more about yourself, therapy can help.

I currently offer a psychodynamic , insight oriented, relational approach to individual and group process therapy.
Are you a successful professional, yet find yourself craving personal satisfaction on a daily basis? Are you innovative, imaginative and resourceful, but can't use those gifts to get the life you dream of? Is stress causing you to panic, withdraw, or feel like a fraud? Over time, we all internalize messages we've received throughout our lives, and unconsciously organize our sense of self around that pain. If you find yourself remembering who you "used to be" and wondering "where did I go?", we can work to regain your sense of self while having satisfying personal and professional relationships.

I am trained in several theoretical orientations including psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).
For over 20 years as a psychologist I have helped people struggling with a variety of issues including life transitions, relationship challenges, work stress, and recovery from anxiety and depression. My approach is two-fold. I want to address the specific issues that have led you to therapy at this time of your life, and I will use therapeutic approaches that are compatible with your unique personality, problems and learning style. I believe that everyone has the power to reexamine and alter situations and tensions in their lives. Clients describe my approach as caring and compassionate but at the same time straight forward.

I use various evidence-based approaches, I am skilled in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic , mindfulness, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, positive therapy, and biblical counseling.
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they really need someone safe to talk to. They need someone who will not use their pain against them. So often they end up holding that pain inside, masking it with a smile or adherent behavior. I can provide a safe place for you to empty your pain and take off the mask so that your quality of life can improve.

I love to explore childhood with a psychodynamic approach, and know that that can be a little scary to look at.
I am a Queer, cisgender woman practicing trans, non-binary, genderqueer, and poly/CNM informed care. I am  ready to help you explore that curiosity about yourself that begs for more attention! I am a curious individual myself and hope that we can create a collaborative therapy experience that showcases your ability to dive into all the amazing parts of YOU. Sexuality and gender, attachment, inner-child wounds and childhood experiences, and forward motion through (not around) our sadness…none of it is off the table! Let’s get started.

As a psychodynamic therapist I believe that our past informs our present, so I will spend time exploring past emotional wounds during our sessions.
You are making a courageous step to invest in your healing and wellbeing today. If you find yourself overwhelmed with the challenges of life, I want you to know that it's okay to feel like it's all "too much" at times. If you're grieving, feeling hopeless, confused, overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, your feelings and emotions are valid and you don't have to go through them alone. If you are here because you want to improve coping skills, your relationship with others and your relationship with yourself, you have most certainly come to the right place.

My therapeutic approach is humanistic, trauma focused, with a foundation in psychodynamic and attachment.
Taking the first steps towards healing our inner wounds is a journey that does not have to be made alone. Therapy is a space for your to be seen, heard, and foster a sense of security. With a client centered approach, I am here to walk side by side you, with a goal of making you feel empowered to make the positive changes you want to make for your life. By navigating our past experiences, we uncover patterns, messages, and beliefs we internalize that holds us back in our present moments. Gaining awareness of our past, and making new meaning, we are able to create new experiences for our future.

Treatment of adults may consist of psychoeducation; training in relaxation or mindfulness meditation; cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic , emotion focused, or other types of therapy for individuals or couples (including sex therapy); or EMDR.
Seeking a trusted therapist who best meets your needs can feel risky and requires courage, especially in the midst of life challenges that feel confusing or overwhelming. Burnout might affect your ability to function at your best. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, chronic stress, or health-related concerns. You might be trying to cope with some type of disability, memory, mild traumatic brain injury, dementia, or other cognitive problems in yourself or in a loved one. More commonly, one or more of your relationships may feel strained and a fresh perspective could be helpful.

Women in Transition hold a particular interest for me. As a woman and psychologist I bring my experiences with depth work and mindfulness to open dialogue, allowing us to live a more conscious life, and explore our feelings and the undeveloped parts of us. I use experiential methods in Transpersonal and Psychodynamic Therapy from a Jungian perspective: Sandplay, Art Therapy, Active Imagination, Dream work , creative writing and poetry. Cognitive therapy is also used. I enjoy helping people gain understanding into the Self and how they interact in the world.

I provide client-centered counseling using a psychodynamic therapeutic approach--but most importantly, a caring approach.
As a therapist I've learned: "TALKING HELPS"! When you're not feeling your feelings, or you're 'alone' with complicated, confusing feelings, then hopelessness or depression can set in. Are you having difficulties in your relationships or other aspects of your life? "Stuffed away" feelings can lead to many problematic symptoms in one's life---by beginning to feel 'buried' feelings, and learning to "tolerate" these feelings, we begin to have improved relationships with ourself and others. As your therapist, I will be on this journey of exploration and understanding with you. My YouTube channel can be found at YouTube.com/BradShore.

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.
