I have a diverse training within the depth, psychoanalytic perspective, drawing on a humanistic approach as well as a faith in our minds abilities to seek integration and healing.
Therapy can be a rich and powerful experience of growth and change. Through an exploration of patterns of thoughts and behaviors, we can uncover a more authentic self; one free from the stuck feelings of repetitive, discouraging patterns, and one grounded in a more comfortable sense of being.

In addition, I have a certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy which grounds me in a solid understanding of the foundations of psycho-therapeutic treatment.
As a psychotherapist, I specialize in helping you to sort through thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be troubling you, bringing about feelings of depression, anxiety and even discouragement and low self esteem. I view psychotherapy as a unique process of support, growth, change and self discovery. A process which often leads to a greater understanding and connection to yourself, and in turn, to more meaningful connections with others.

We will work in a confidential space, where we thoughtfully,carefully, and intelligently reflect on your emotional life. We can gently explore the origins of your feelings and work through how they show themselves. Our work will be focused in the here and now: by exploring who you are right now, change in your outlook or actions becomes possible. Generally, I use ideas firmly grounded in psychoanalytic theory and technique that are informed by my personal practice of Zen meditation of over ten years. Paying attention to what you do and how you feel can reveal the source of discomfort.

I therefore combine in-depth exploration, utilizing psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic curiosity, with directive skills use like skills elements from DBT.
Wether you struggle to restore perspective, calm and balance in your life, attempt to heal trauma, depression and anxiety, or seek to discover and pursue greater potential and purpose, I offer a safe, open, curious and non-judgemental place to do just that. Everything you think, feel, do and experience actually makes complete sense - we simply may need some time to understand and appreciate why it does. This growing awareness allows for better design of a life with purposeful future and relief from the past, offering real, actual choice rather than the apparent choice in repetitive, automatic and unconscious routines.

My experience/training: I have extensive training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy to help you work through your deepest wounds and blocks; trauma-focused methods such as the Trauma Resiliency Model to address chronic dysregulation; and mindfulness techniques along with Buddhist metapsychology.
I'm a licensed clinical psychologist, clinical supervisor, and psychoanalyst-in-training. I find great satisfaction in helping my patients connect with, and have compassion for, their deepest authentic selves. Many of my patients are adult children of parents with mood or personality disorders, addictions, or who for other reasons were neglectful, rageful, or highly critical and pressuring. While my specialties include working with other mental health professionals, enhancing creative performance in artists and lapsed artists, chronic illness, and trauma/PTSD, I truly enjoy working with a diverse spectrum of people and issues.

My credentials include a master's in psychology from Antioch University, a master's in education from Pacific Oaks, completion of the psychoanalytic program at the New Center of Psychoanalysis and Anger Management Certification.
You hide it well. You dress the part. You focus on other people so they won't focus on you. You do well professionally and it distracts you from how deeply alone you feel. Often if seems easier to pretend that you're OK, but deep down... you hope for something more. I specialize in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults who struggle with shame, depression, suicidality, divorce, anger, anxiety, isolation, or estrangment from family members. I also specialize in working with friends and family members of narcissistic personalities.

This included a thorough knowledge of psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic psychotherapies, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as many others.
As your therapist, I can help you find the solutions to problems that seem impossible for you to solve. I can help you to reduce those symptoms that brought you to me in the first place. Together we can develop behavioral changes that make life more enjoyable. Once involved, you will feel less helpless, overwhelmed, or frightened. I provide a safe space in which you can articulate your difficulties, and support for the efforts you are willing to make to turn things around. From here you will find the opportunity for personal growth. Please visit http://therapy.borgardt.com.

If you are on this site, you are likely thinking about therapy or you are ready to find a therapist. Welcome! I have been in practice for over 30 years, specializing in family therapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My work involves developing a trusting, non-judgemental relationship with my patients, creating a safe place where all thoughts and feelings can be expressed. Perhaps you have been struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Maybe your relationships have been unsatisfying or conflictual, or you have been unable to have relationships. What about physical symptoms for which no medical cause can be found?

After receiving my doctorate, I completed advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Wright Institute Los Angeles.
**I am not accepting new patients at this time. I can offer referrals to kind and skilled therapists if you contact me.** I believe you deserve a space where you can get to know your own mind, feelings and experiences without the burden of judgement. At times, life can feel incredibly difficult and therapy can be a place where you can speak candidly, explore your unique experiences, and not feel so alone in your struggles.

I am a psychodynamic, psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
I work with people suffering from anxiety and/or depression who wish to deeply explore what is behind the symptoms they are experiencing. I work best with people who need a space to be heard and want to be empowered in their treatment. If you are noticing patterns and themes in your life and are unsure about why you are unable to do things differently despite wanting to change, exploring your foundational experiences can help to get to the root of the matter. Sometimes coping skills and tools are not enough, and I am here to help. I am LGBTQ affirmative, sex positive, and work through a social justice lens.

My training includes: Somatic Experiencing, Janina Fisher’s Structural Dissociation Model, Internal Family Systems, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, and Non-Violent Communication.
I believe in all people’s innate capacity to heal. To me, all symptoms that we experience whether it be chronic pain, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, etc can be explained by trauma. Trauma does not have to be big events. Trauma can be if we are not attuned to emotionally as children or if our parents have their own unprocessed trauma—this sort of trauma often leads to deep seeded beliefs that we are unloveable and bad. Our healing comes from teaching our parts that we are loveable and accepted just as we are.

While compassion is the cornerstone of my practice, I will also challenge you in more direct ways. Through the process of psychotherapy we come to know ourselves in a meaningful way. This self-insight can lead to comfort, purpose, and more settled, enriching relationships. * A note about COVID-19: this pandemic has already caused all of us great loss, destruction, and grief. We are anxious about what may come. It is of some solace to know that we are all feeling these things across the world, in our own ways, and that we will get through this.

The nature of my work as a psychotherapist is to strive for a safe and trusting environment during the time that is shared. Together we build the relationship as patient and therapist with the goal of providing a comfortable and private space for us to discuss any challenging issues they are experiencing, decreasing limits and without judgment. My orientation of choice is the psychodynamic orientation and I mainly focus from the psychoanalytic relational space.

I hold a degree in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Are you feeling stuck, or not quite sure how to move things forward? This feeling can apply to relationship, career, or just a general life experience. Are you struggling with a loss or a meaningful life transition? The decision to begin treatment is a gesture of courage and hope. Together, we will explore your concerns, and look for ways to navigate any obstacles or self-defeating patterns getting in the way of reaching life fulfillment and fuller potential. We work toward a more open, creative and authentic self experience-- self with self, self in relationship, self in the community/world.

My training is in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
We often feel lost when solutions cannot be found for the challenges we face. It's at this point that our challenges become obstacles that block us from fully living our lives. Unfortunately, time doesn't heal all pain and our anxiety, anger, depression, and fear don't always go away on their own. As a therapist, my goal is to help you better understand yourself, find purpose in your pain, alleviate your stress, and make more space for creativity, love, and happiness in your life.
