Seeking counseling is a sign of strength and listening to your intuition that something doesn’t quite feel right. Every person has their own unique experiences that have helped shape who they are today. You may be experiencing some emptiness, unhappiness, life dissatisfaction, or relational discord with others. I rely on my intuition, training, and mental health expertise to guide you towards uncovering the barriers that are preventing you from achieving happiness and peace of mind. If we don’t have peace within ourselves, how can we attempt to have positive, healthy relationships with others and the world in which we live?

My approach to psychotherapy is one that is collaborative, integrative, and affirming. I truly believe that the therapeutic relationship is a primary factor in therapeutic change. What that means is that you must feel as though I am a good fit to help you achieve your goals. Although my work primarily focuses on LGBTQ+ issues, I also believe in the value of taking a relational approach within therapy to examine our behaviors as they arise in session to determine one's patterns of relating. I believe that if given an affirming space to explore these dynamics, it can help facilitate change leading to a more meaningful life.

I was raised to believe that richness of exposures and depth of trainings make for the best professionals. Before I became a therapist myself, I earned a Ph.D. in an allied field and spent 16 years teaching, at UCLA, USC, and Antioch University West; then I went back to school for clinical training. I specialized in children and families as a base and then went further for psychoanalytic training, one program for adults, another for children and adolescents.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
