I consider it a privilege and an honor to work with people who want to find balance in their lives. People come into therapy seeking help for a variety of problems. You may be in severe pain, suffering the effects of trauma, stressful events, ruptured relationships or addiction problems. You may need help to achieve healthy emotional boundaries with friends, loved ones, co-workers. Perhaps you wish to live a more full and satisfying life. While I typically draw from psychodynamic , family systems and relational/humanistic approaches, I am very flexible and tailor my approach to each individual.

Other areas of special interest are indicated by my certification in Psychodynamic Therapy, ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), Attachment, Human Sexuality, Group Psychotherapy.
Most people grapple with challenges related to self-esteem, self-actualization, emotion (be it awareness, regulation or resilience) and intimate relationships, (be they with a partner, family, friends or business associates). In helping people with these matters throughout my 40-year practice I have found them to be based on attachment trauma, personal and interpersonal conflict, anxiety and whatever set of problematic behaviors have arisen out of attempting to cope with these issues (e.g., rumination, avoidance, food and substance abuse, depression). If you are struggling with any of this lets talk. We may be well-suited to work together.

I use a unique blend of psychodynamic modalities.
The truth is life can be difficult! We all experience loss, disappointment, anxiety, and self-doubt. Peace, clarity, and wellbeing are your natural state. Depression, anxiety and relationship problems cause anguish and pain - getting by day to day can be challenging. We often struggle alone hoping things will get better. I care and I am here to support you in connecting with your innate wisdom allowing you to find solutions and make the changes that are most meaningful to you. Be more productive, have higher quality connections, and success. Experience more joy, love, laughter, and self-confidence. I'd love to hear from you!

My specializations include psychodynamic therapy, relational and family systems therapy, and mindfulness.
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." (Maya Angelou) I understand that as we experience life we will inevitably encounter obstacles and stressors that challenge us to change. I also believe these moments present opportunities for transformation. I recognize that life transitions and personal experiences can sometimes be overwhelming, however they can also be valuable seasons with the potential to generate "peak and valley" experiences that can alter our life course.

I utilize humanistic, psychodynamic , Jungian and cognitive behavioral techniques geared towards each Ct's uniques needs.
I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.

Navigating life's challenges is never easy, but reaching out for help is a brave first step to living a more genuine and fulfilling life. I have expertise in working with individuals struggling with childhood trauma and trauma-related symptoms such as grief, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relational conflict. I believe every client is unique and deserves to be listened to and understood in an empathetic way. I am passionate about creating a safe, kind, collaborative and judgment-free space where clients can attain new insights, experience new feelings, and find a renewed sense of physical and mental well-being.

I specialize in Psychodynamic and Attachment Theory, but I also incorporate aspects of Humanistic, Family Systems, Existential and Solution-Focused therapies in my work.
Therapy can be about working to resolve ongoing pain, or it can simply be about self-exploration and growth. No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change. In addition to working to achieve progress on individual therapeutic goals, we will work to help you find inner peace, make healthy and adaptive changes and function better in your relationships with others.

My approach to therapy integrates psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Psychotherapy relies heavily on the rapport between therapist and client, without it growth and trust cease to exist. I work towards understanding your needs and wants in a nonjudgmental safe, supportive, and empathetic environment. I believe mental health issues are a symptom of deeper, unresolved emotional issues and childhood wounds. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to help identify irrational thoughts and faulty thinking that are the main culprits behind anxiety and stress.

I believe that growth is a balance of tackling our short-term challenges while uncovering their long-term patterns and origins. I consider it a privilege to work alongside my clients and find out what is possible when we make the decision to explore and evolve. My approach is tailored to each individual and their goals, but I center my work around a psychodynamic approach that incorporates mindfulness-based stress reduction, somatic therapy, attachment theory, and family systems.

The foundation of my work is primarily informed by experiential dynamic therapies, most prominently by evidence-based "Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy" (ISTDP), a structured, efficient, cost-effective, goal-results-oriented structured treatment approach, providing in-vivo experiences and in-session affective processing, uniquely designed to achieving deep and profound change. I integrate other modalities and approaches as needed and efficacious.

Therapy can be a leap of faith, a hopeful search for relief from unmanageable states, or a pursuit for deeper insight and meaning, sometimes both. The first steps towards support can at times be daunting however very rewarding once taken. My foundational training in Psychodynamic , Depth and Humanistic traditions merged with innovative and evidence based advancements in attachment theory, neuroscience and the body’s stress response, have led me to a strengths based, integrative and client centered approach whereby each treatment plan is tailored appropriately to the unique needs of each individual.

Trained in family systems, psychodynamic or "insight-oriented" therapies, and cognitive-behavioral therapies, I help the client find "what works" to help him or her feel supported in making the desired changes.
People entering therapy want some kind of change, whether in the quality of their relationships or in their personal or professional satisfaction levels. My style is warm and nurturing but highly interactive and practical. I help my clients gain the self-awareness to understand their goals, identify the roadblocks hindering their progress, and make the changes necessary for a healthier, richer life and deeper, more intimate relationships.

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.
