My theoretical orientation is rooted in psychodynamic and object relations therapies.
I have been in private practice for over 18 years. I treat adults in individual and conjoint psychotherapy. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders and bereavement. I am comfortable using both brief and long-term treatment approaches. In my practice, I hope to help my clients better understand how long-standing conflicts and current stressors may be impacting their ability to function successfully in the present.

I use a combination of modalities including Psychodynamic , Internal Family Systems and mindfulness to build a client's internal toolbox.
Making the decision to engage in therapy can be difficult and overwhelming. I invite adolescents, emerging adults, adults and couples to enter a confidential space where they are free to explore their experiences and emotions without judgement. My role is to assist clients in identifying the patterns that cause them to be stuck and help them develop strategies to improve confidence and engage with the important people in their lives more effectively.

My approach integrates psychodynamic treatment with mindfulness and body-centered work.
Many people experience a challenge in life that impedes their ability to fully be themselves, be present in their daily life, and be connected to the people they love. Often, people try to cope with stress or unhappiness by pushing through the bad feelings and continuing on until that no longer works. If you find yourself in this situation, I can help you find a path back to being present in, and enjoying, your life. Therapy allows for a connection and a relationship in which your healing and wellbeing is the focus.

Most people seek therapy because they are disappointed in a relationship, or have lost someone important to them. Often, this experience reactivates old hurts and losses which weaken feelings of self-worth. I work to help that person restore a sense of self-appreciation, to deepen their self-understanding, and enhance their relationships with others.

It seems like you've got it together but nobody seems to realize you're floundering. They don't know what's inside: a tally of every failure, a plan for every what if, chronic worry, fear and insecurity and thoughts- so many thoughts! It's impossible to focus. You may play a lot of roles: spouse, friend, parent, employee, entrepreneur- it's crazymaking! It can be easy to lose the YOU in all of this. You were a person before you became the social chameleon you're required to be right now. The anxious feeling never goes away and you don't know what to do, so you suffer quietly. You don't have to stay here.

Life can feel overwhelming when you're faced with loss or change. As much as you try to adjust, it can be scary and confusing to realize that life isn't turning out the way you had planned. Life stress -- such as divorce or relationship loss, death of a loved one, job loss, illness, caregiving -- happens to most of us at some point and it can seem nearly impossible to bounce back from such heartache.

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.
