Treatment methods include a combination of insight-oriented or psychodynamic work, coupled with teaching skills for addressing issues.
I began my career as a practicing attorney representing women in abusive relationships in order of protection and divorce proceedings. As a therapist, I use my legal and therapeutic background to provide individual counseling prior to, during, and after divorce. Divorce is a traumatic life event that can have a ripple effect on nearly every aspect of one's life. I offer clients both concrete help to better understand the legal system and what they can expect from the process, while also working to gain deeper insight into what happened in the relationship and starting to heal from the experience.

I am trained in EMDR, and use a solution focused, person centered, insight oriented approach, based on psychodynamic theories.
Could you believe there may be another way to look at your experiences and ideas about yourself and your life? Maybe you're new to therapy and ready to try a different approach. Or maybe therapy has been helpful in the past and you're looking for a tune up. As uncertain that first step may seem, with the right fit it may open up possibilities for you and set you on a new path.

I utilize evidence-based therapies, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR and Psychodynamic Therapy to help you understand how and why you think your thoughts and then question the emotions and attitudes that affect your life.
Life is not fair; there is often an imbalance and you may feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. You may feel like you just don’t know who you are anymore, that you lack a voice or feel stuck. These emotions can leave someone feeling lost in the world.

I strive to support individuals by using a variety of approaches including the Psychodynamic method and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
We are lucky enough to have unique experiences in life that shape us into the individual we are. Some experiences can be joyful while others can be difficult. It may be easy for difficult experiences to overshadow the good; no two persons’ experiences affect them the same. I aim to celebrate each person’s unique identities in a safe environment while supporting them on their mental health journey.

I utilize insight-oriented Psychodynamic Therapy to help you deepen your understanding of yourself and your relationships.
Life can give us experiences of fun and excitement. At the same time, there are periods where day-to-day life becomes overwhelming. When these waves of overwhelm arrive, we can experience difficulty identifying ways to deal with our feelings. We may struggle in naming what we are feeling and subsequently experience a sense of impossibility and helplessness. Through my work with individuals and couples, I developed a repertoire of interventions to guide my clients who are struggling with relational issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, and emotional dysregulation.

Through trained as a psychodynamic therapist I have evolved into a more eclectic approach depending on need .
Therapy is a significant step towards discovering your true self and to understand the issues that shape and block you from leading a more authentic fulfilling life. Through the context of a trusting relationship I will work with you to uncover your goals. Symptoms are messages of blockage and unbalance our way of trying to cope. Understanding the message behind the symptoms and getting past them is part of the work and require a gentle challenging partnership. I focus on attachment history, values and experiences that have shaped who you are. I work with adults of all ages and diagnosis's.
