When life isn't going well, or you feel stuck, anxious, depressed or angry; therapy may help you to move beyond patterns and circumstances that you would like to change. Together we can explore what is keeping you from living the life you want, having more fulfilling relationships or simply moving through life with ease and joy. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, panic, fear, addiction, numbness, isolation or depression therapy can help in facilitating change. Those who have experienced traumatic experiences or childhood neglect or abuse can benefit from trauma informed therapy to help move beyond the past.

Do you need a little more support and structure in your life? I run a variety of high energy groups to help keep you on track, including "I Hate Weekends" (a Sunday support group for people who tend to isolate on the weekends), "You Can't Stop The Waves, But You Can Learn To Surf" (a cognitive therapy group for depression and anxiety), and "Back to Life, Back to Reality" (a life transition group). It's amazing what can happen when people stop being polite and start getting real...

I have a diverse background as a psychodynamic psychotherapist for over 30 years, who has also been a lawyer and had a career in sales and marketing.
As we journey through life, we find ourselves at many crossroads promising opportunities for growth, renewal and reflection. Most of my clients are looking forward to making the most of these moments and experiencing the freedom that comes with self-knowledge, compassion and acceptance. My typical client is an older adult reflecting on what they need and want for their future and gaining (perhaps a new) perspective on the life they have lived thus far.

I am also trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Hi, my name is Kelsie. For many of us, the response to painful thoughts, emotions and life events is to check out, numb, avoid or shut down. To me, therapy work is not about learning to get rid of all the "bad stuff." It’s about learning how to show up and keep going DESPITE the "bad stuff." I combine a warm and accepting style with concrete skills to help you regulate your emotions, tolerate distress, identify values and goals that make life worth living and challenge thought patterns that get in the way. Above all, my approach is collaborative: we will decide together what balance of those tools will work best for you.

My approach integrates concepts from CBT, DBT, Existential, Gestalt, solution-focused, and psychodynamic therapy to create individualized treatments for my clients.
I became a psychotherapist because everyone needs “that person” in their life who will always believe in them, support them, and not judge them based on their past. As we all continue to navigate life’s transitions and changes, there are points where we find ourselves needing extra guidance and support. Whether you are currently thriving or struggling in life, deciding to seek therapy can be a challenging, rewarding, and life-changing experience. As a therapist, I strive to be “that person” by providing a non-judgmental, warm, and compassionate environment that fosters growth.

My approach is integrative, I tend to favor psychodynamic and relational modalities.
*Currently not accepting new clients* Navigating modern times as a teen and adult is challenging especially coming from an immigrant family. My firsthand experience in that realm has allowed me to specialize in supporting those trying to balance self-identity with old traditions. I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship and my approach is to meet you wherever you are reaching from. Through compassion, patience, and direction I hope to guide you to a space where you find a peace mind and greater love for yourself.

I work on several levels: alleviating the distressing symptoms that brought the client to therapy, identifying and replacing deeply-held destructive thoughts and behaviors, and arming clients with effective coping tools to lead a higher quality of life. My style is interactive, action-oriented, and collaborative. My deepest joy is in witnessing my clients gain a deeper self-awarness that allows for better decision-making, effective communication, and a life of purpose and enthusiasm.

My expertise as a therapist is in creating a safe and trusting connection as the foundation of our work. Are you struggling with anxiety, addiction, trauma, depression or multiple issues? Through collaboration, attunement and curiosity, explore the life you want, what interferes with achieving it, and how life experiences influence relational dynamics and perceptions of the world. I support this process of exploration towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life, with healthier connections to self and others. Treatment focus is also on strengths and experiencing a sense of empowerment, resiliency, aliveness and joy in your life.

My diverse training at Downtown Women's Center, The Maple Counseling Center, and Community West Treatment provides me with the opportunity to pull from various treatment approaches such as CBT, Psychodynamic , and ERP.
I’m so happy you’re on this site and thinking about therapy. There are many factors to consider when picking a therapist and, most importantly, you want it to be the right fit for you. The relationship between a therapist and client is the strongest indicator for success in treatment, and my ultimate goal is to create a safe and secure environment. My professional and personal mindset is to be a lifelong learner. I’m always learning from clients, as there is no single approach to therapy. I believe in meeting you where you are, working side-by-side to achieve your goals, and together finding the best path to help you heal and grow.

I work with individuals, couples and adolescents. I am psychodynamic in philosophy but eclectic in my approach. Each persons treatment needs are different so therapy is often a combination of insight, cognitive and behavioral. I am aware of the many stressors that come to bear on our lives and address the problems that arise with family, work, emotions and interpersonal relationships. I help people cope with and learn from the challenging tasks of living life.

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.
