I use a person-centered, psychodynamic approach, borrowing techniques from motivational interviewing, CBT, DBT, narrative and reality therapy, case management, and life coaching to tailor myself to individual needs/preferences.
I know all too well what it's like to be living half a life, with substance use, various co-occurring mental health disorders, and life circumstances getting in the way of having healthy relationships, a stable career, and developing a sense of fulfillment and confidence in yourself. My goal is to help you achieve your life goals by identifying, understanding, and accepting your major obstacles in new ways, and using your unique strengths to work with them instead of against them to make them less daunting. I believe that you can solve any problem you're facing and my job is to help you get to a place where you can believe it too!

My practice is focused on helping individuals struggling with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief and infertility issues. I was trained from a psychodynamic perspective, which I integrate with other techniques and orientations and consider myself very relational in my approach. In other words, I view current problems as having roots in past events and patterns, but believe change is achieved through collaboration and active participation in the present moment.

I conceptualize from a psychodynamic perspective but value cognitive behavioral concepts and techniques and often help patients work through negative core beliefs and make behavioral goals.
My ideal client would be someone who is at a point where they are ready to take action to make changes in their behavior and life. I am best suited to treating clients who have experienced or are experiencing symptoms of major depressive disorder, panic disorder, or posttraumatic stress disorder. My ideal client could be anyone over the age of 6. I have extensive experience working with a population diverse in culture and ethnic background, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, and economic status and ideally enjoy clients with all perspectives and experiences.

Integrating a relational, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approach, I address each client's individual needs.
As a licensed clinical psychologist I work with individuals and couples to create an individualized plan leading to self-discovery, fulfillment and greater authenticity. I work to create a safe relationship for clients to explore difficult aspects of their lives and to gain insight into recurring, self-defeating patterns. My practice focuses on helping each client to discover and build upon their innate strengths and ability to make positive changes.

I use Interpersonal/Relational, Self-Compassion, Psychodynamic , Internal Family Systems (Parts work), Somatic Experiencing, and Trauma Narrative therapies.
Thanks for visiting my page. I have discovered a common obstacle among clients is how they are highly self-critical with themselves and subsequently experience distress in their world. This process manifests into or intensifies symptoms (i.e. depression, anxiety, trauma, low self-worth, and/or relationship issues, etc). Using a relational approach, I work to help clients build self-awareness, add language to their past experiences that impact their present, and build skills to cope. My intention is to help you experience long-term well-being where we not only treat the symptoms, but also explore the root of your concerns.

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy that incorporates psychodynamic therapy, trauma-informed care, psychoeducation, feminist therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused interventions, and EMDR to help adults achieve better mental health.
I love working with adults who are curious about themselves and who are ready to look at their past, including any trauma that has impacted their life. I am trained in EMDR which is a powerful treatment modality that helps process traumatic or distressing events and memories. I use assessments that have been validated and researched to ensure that I understand what you are going through. As we work together, I will ask about what is working best for you and will tailor my approach as needed. Please note: this Psychology Today Profile is maintained by my employer, SKB Therapy.

Relationships evoke our deepest longings and fears, and touch on wounds that may have been long hidden, wounds which we’ve often lived a lifetime without recognizing. The pain of disconnection we feel in relationships, the heated arguments and periods of distance or alienation, can leave us lost and confused, stuck in emotional knots, with our desire for closeness vying against our protective reactions. Cycles of conflict may escalate, and with them, the pain. All the while, deep down, we quietly long to share ourselves more honestly and fully with those whom we are closest to.

As a Couple and Family Therapist Candidate, I specialize in working with a broad composition of dyadic and dynamic relationships. I am an intentional listener, non-judgmental, at times bring spontaneity to sessions and honor everyone's truth. Developing new behavioral, thought, or communication patterns take time and extreme patience. I recognize each person has their own unique path toward changing perspective and developing healthier, new habits. This is your space to explore various topics, express what's written on your heart, question the grey areas, find clarity, and conquer inner battles that have prevented growth.

As a magical Jungian psychotherapist I believe in the importance of exploring your inner world and working synergistically with your personal path or tradition. Are you feeling sad, confused, or blocked creatively? Do you have trouble finding meaning or struggle in relationships? Often along our soul’s journey we pass through deep states of contraction, you may experience a squeeze so tight that it might feel suffocating. These dark nights of the soul often prepare us for a powerful transformation. Therapy can help you deepen into the spirited messages from within that will take you toward the most authentic expression of yourself.

Trauma-informed. Compassionate. Real. <— If I had to describe my therapeutic approach in three words or phrases, those three would be the most fitting. Trauma is more than just an event that happened in the past; trauma is also the imprint left by the traumatic experience on the mind and body. I recognize that “fit” is super important when choosing a therapist, and I strive to create a supportive and safe therapeutic space for all of my clients.

Are you experiencing stress, anxiety or depression as the result of a major life change? Life changes can be exciting: new job, recent marriage, birth of a child. Life changes can also be terrifying: loss of job, divorce, death of a loved one. You may initiate some life changes: planned retirement, move to another city or another country. Other life changes seem to force themselves upon you: a toxic relationship with a loved one that is no longer acceptable, unexpected injury, loved one that has betrayed your trust.

You want to live a full, vital, creative life, but something is in the way. Maybe you feel anxious or down, or you find yourself in the same relational patterns again and again, or you feel tangled up in your relationship with food and your body. You may not be sure how to get there, but you hope for change within yourself that is meaningful, and lasts - something more than a "band-aid" approach. My hope, and my approach to therapy, is to collaborate with you to understand why you are hurting the way you are, and to find where stuck points or unconscious patterns get in the way of your ability to play, love, work, and find meaning.

The days are blurring together. There’s a pressure in your chest that won’t go away. It’s hard to breathe because you are so overwhelmed. You see everything that’s not working but feel out of control. Distracting yourself with friends, alcohol, exercise, etc. used to work. Now, you’re stuck at home, unable to distract yourself for long. You hate who you are. Up to this point, you were surviving, but you want more. You think, “if only I wasn’t so sensitive.” Your whole life you’ve felt small, judged, shamed. There has to be more. You don’t want to be that person anymore, and you need help. You need someone to see the real you.

You deserve to live a life on your terms. Sometimes this can seem impossible when experiencing anxiety, depression or low self esteem. You feel stuck. My belief is that psychotherapy is fundamentally an opportunity to gain a deeper sense of personal meaning and allow for more self-understanding, which can help to reduce these intense emotions. This journey is unique for every client and my role is to help you discover the deeply rooted, and often unconscious, ways that you view yourself, patterns of behavior you engage in, and the automatic ways that your body reacts to and holds onto experiences.

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.
