My method is grounded in Psychodynamic and Relational Theory. We all will work together to understand your thoughts, emotions, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into your present-day problems and unhealthy patterns. I encourage you to speak freely about your desires and fears, so you can identify feelings and thoughts that you've pushed out of conscious awareness. As unconscious thoughts become conscious, you are better equipped to integrate new ways of acting, instead of remaining stuck in habitual ones. By practicing carefully and tactfully, we will take curative steps ahead.

My clinical practice is strength-based and trauma-focused, blending Psychodynamic , Cognitive Behavioral, and Relational approaches.
I offer a non-judgmental and reflective space to process and explore, with the goal of developing understanding and initiating change. I approach the work with a fundamental belief that a range of experiences, both big and small, can have lasting impacts on our development and worldview. Difficult experiences and painful relationships can affect our connection with our bodies, our identities, and our sense of worth. As we begin to heal our relationship with ourselves, we can expand the ways in which we show up in our lives.

If you are open to deeper exploration, reconnecting to your authentic self, and challenging problematic patterns of thinking/behaviors, then I can provide a safe space for you. Making the decision to start therapy can often feel daunting and part of the work may revolve around confronting those fears. I ascribe to a psychodynamic approach that allows me to focus on you as a whole, not just your presenting concerns.Together, we can work towards identifying and exploring the barriers to growth and self-fulfillment that may be holding you back in your life.

Clients come to me if they are struggling with self worth, anxiety, self esteem, feeling lost, addiction, relationship struggles, depression, and more. I help clients explore themselves and how their thought and emotional patterns work, so that we can intercept them and create new neuro-pathways that change how we feel forever. The goal is for clients to feel good about themselves and their lives, congruent in their surroundings, and finding a sense of purpose and meaning in the world.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Miami Beach, 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.
