I work from a psychodynamic /depth perspective in dealing with both couples and individuals, and tailor treatment to individual needs.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and am also certified as a Psychoanalyst. I am thus trained on two fronts: both with difficulties inherent in couples relationships--including communication, anger, betrayal, and pre- and post-marital problems--and also with individual personal difficulties including depression, anxiety, fears, and addictions. Most emotional problems have their basis in current or past personal relationships. Good therapy involves a clear understanding and honoring of the many complex issues involved. I deeply respect the emotional struggles and the difficult decisions which bring many people to therapy.

I use the following therapeutic approaches: Internal Family Systems, Relational Cultural and Psychodynamic Theories, along with CBT and Mindfulness to help you identify problematic patterns and make meaningful change.
Change can be difficult, even with something you looked forward to such as going to college, having a baby, or starting a new job. Unanticipated or unwanted change can be especially difficult, like the loss of a loved one, a relationship ending, or watching your child or young adult struggle. My approach to therapy combines warmth and compassion with practical problem solving and coping strategies.

I use an integrated approach to treatment, drawing from psychodynamic , attachment, humanistic, and cognitive behavioral theories.
It has been my passion to help people improve their health and well being for over 30 years. I started my career as a Dietitian/Nutritionist, helping people improve their health through nutrition counseling and behavior change. I soon discovered that it takes more than knowledge and good intention to change long held habits, beliefs and behaviors. Childhood trauma, poor self esteem, unhealthy attachments, faulty thinking and dysfunctional relationships all impact our ability to value ourselves and to live a healthy and fullfilling life. I became a psychotherapist to more fully address the whole person - heart, mind and body.

Are you "sick of feeling sick". Do you have a wounded heart due to frequent disappointments in relationships. Do you feel invisible and struggle with setting boundaries and asserting yourself. In my practice, women who have been traumatized/abused and desire to finally start living, typically see great progress. I help you gain new insights and find way for you to manage your unique anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, if you have endured abuse, you might subconsciously be attracting and be attracted to someone who is going to perpetuate the abuse. It feels familiar and consequently "safe", even though it is not.

Hi there! I know it takes courage to reach out for help, so great job taking that first step. Whether you are looking for guidance or a trusted person to listen and reflect - I can be that support. You do not have to be alone in your struggles. When life gets overwhelming the first thing to get pushed aside is our most important relationship, the one we have with ourself. When we learn to give ourselves the attention and compassion we so readily offer others, it can be life changing. I offer a space to talk free of judgment and full of empathy. We can work together to figure out how you can truly live the life you desire.

From the outside you are this high achieving teenager that meets everyone's expectations. But on the inside, you are silently anxious. You never feel good enough. You feel exhausted constantly worrying about what others think of you. You consistently push your emotions to the side to please others and try not to disappoint. Or you are a young adult feeling lonely outgrowing old friendships and feeling guilty wanting more reciprocity in your friendships. You feel nervous and anxious on making new friends for fear you aren't good enough.

My primary goal is to help you take control of your life. I have been in practice for more than 25 years & I would love to help you build healthier relationships, repair broken ones, improve communication and intimacy. I have experience helping clients handle stress and heal from trauma. Research shows that much unhappiness, many symptoms of depression and anxiety (along with resentment and anger) can be reduced or alleviated. By understanding our past and acquiring effective skills we CAN change our life. We can't change our history or others. We can change how we see life, take control of our life and find peace and happiness.

Life can be an interesting journey & yet sometimes, it feels like a rough road full of potholes and speed bumps! Our lives bring us a variety of experiences, some beautiful and others very painful. Nonetheless, it's important to continue to put one foot in front of the other. Regardless of how you may feel at this present moment, know that many individuals encounter struggles in their lifetime. Whether you find yourself struggling with relationships, disabilities, trauma, family discord, loss, or just the day to day functions, there is no life requirement that says you have to walk through it alone.

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.
