I integrate CBT, Psychodynamic , and Humanistic models and specialize in evidence-based, trauma-focused therapy.
Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to suffering. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of agency in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, believing you are good enough as you are, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

In my practice I use an eclectic approach that is strengths-based and integrates dialectical behavior therapy, psychodynamic theory, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Each of us possesses an inherent capacity for growth and the power to create a fulfilling life for ourselves. As a therapist I seek to partner this capacity and strength of yours with my abilities to instill hope and use evidence-based interventions. I place value in the therapeutic relationship and by bringing warmth and empathy into each session, I believe that together we can work towards reaching your goals. Whether your goal is to learn coping mechanisms, improve your quality of life, work through difficult life events and/or trauma, or expand self-awareness, I will strive to be a catalyst in helping you create lasting changes.

My integrative style, grounded in the best modern scholarship, blends cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and mindfulness approaches in promoting health and personal growth.
Compassion. Insight. Empowerment. I'm committed to blending clinical expertise with warmth and respect for each client's wisdom, to create a healing, growthful partnership. A hallmark of my approach is cultivating mindfulness: nonjudgmental, moment by moment awareness that promotes living more fully, less reactively, and making better use of one's resources. Whether addressing depression, anxiety, stress, past trauma or current relationships, I begin by creating a space of acceptance. Here, we cultivate insight: the ability to observe accurately, think clearly, and choose wisely. Together, we explore options, drawn from clinical scholarship, collective wisdom, and clients' evolving self-awareness.

My approach is eclectic, drawing from a number of perspectives (Cognitive-Behavioral, Existential, Psychodynamic , and Evolutionary Psychology), as well as pragmatic and honest, focused on insight, meaning, and the ways in which our experiences shape our views of the relations between self and other, the world, and our place therein.
Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

I conceptualize each individual's issues through a number of different lenses, from psychodynamic to behavioral.
I have run my own psychotherapy practice for 30 years. My areas of expertise include: couples therapy, management of depression and anxiety, including postpartum depression, infertility, eating disorders, weight management and grief counseling. I have specialized training and experience in Health Psychology which addresses the connection between mental and physical health. My philosophy is that you can't treat the mind without the body because they are intricately connected. Life stressors not only contribute to depression and anxiety but to headaches, GI issues, chronic pain and other health issues.

I view psychotherapy as an opportunity for personal growth and greater self-understanding. While it is important to address specific issues in the here and now, often the process can also lead to broader gains in self-awareness and life satisfaction. My approach is collaborative, supportive, and tailored to each person's unique needs and goals. I will work with you to address your concerns, overcome obstacles and find greater personal satisfaction.

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.
