With all clients I work from a psychodynamic perspective which focuses on deep and real fundamental change in how life is experienced and lived.
Life can be difficult. Sometimes we need some help. Do you need help to get back on track? Do you need assistance to overcome continual struggles and relational conflicts? I can help you get moving in the right direction. I will assist you in this process not with simple advice or a few superficial skills but with insightful interaction and relational engagement. Your life can change! I can support you each step of the way towards a life with more purpose, harmony and peace. Life can be different. Contact me. Meet with me one time and see change is possible.

I provide a safe environment for clients to process their issues. I believe that psychotherapy is more than talk therapy. I am excited about the new research and treatments that focus on mind and body (somatic memories). I have an integrative approach to therapy. I work best with complex trauma (emotional and physical, including childhood neglect) and resulting anxiety and depression. I work well with grief related issues (complicated grief) and problems that arise from chronic illnesses.

As children we create beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that are a result of our interactions with our environment, our heredity and, our relationships with others. Everyday we reinforce those beliefs by our assumptions and our interpretation of events, even though those beliefs may no longer be accurate, may cause us pain, and may negatively impact our ability to function at optimum potential. Counseling and hypnotherapy facilitate awareness, change, empowerment and growth.

It is the case that life is rarely as we expect it to be and may seem more difficult and confusing than we can bear alone. You may expend a tremendous amount of energy holding it together or trying to maintain the appearance of perfection leaving you feeling depleted and unfulfilled. My hope is to meet you where you are and walk alongside you to help sort out your emotions, enhance your relationships, understand yourself, achieve goals, and facilitate healing.

People seek psychotherapy because of anxiety or depression or both. Often a person seeks treatment when his own perspective on his problems shows him no way out. Through asking you questions and making observations,I will help you see a perspective that will allow you to see what you need to do to attain satisfaction and joy in your daily life.

Sometimes we can feel stress and lost with relationships, our families, and ourselves. We all need help. Someone to listen to up. You might wish you could improve your sex life in your romantic relationships, or change your family and relationships interactions. Maybe you want to live a calm and peaceful life and overcome past traumas that don't let you move on. Replaying your history over and over, wishing things were different. It might be the way you think and treat yourself that brought you here. Maybe you want to discover more about yourself and never knew how.

The ideal client is someone who has a desire to face what they are dealing with. The client may need assistance in overcoming various problems in their life, or they may be experiencing a limited number of items which they need help with, but either way, it is my ambition to be there for them through any and all they are experiencing.

Do you ever feel like you’re living on the margins of your life? As a therapist, I work with people to explore their lives on a deep level because it is my experience that the more deeply we work, the deeper our healing. We will work together to identify what is holding you back, has you stuck. I don't think it is what's wrong with you; I think it's what's happened to you. You may identify the stuck place as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship isuses, blocked life transitions, creativity, or spiritual growth. You may recognize this as a yearning to deepen and grow.

Throughout our life span we will encounter different challenges, transitions, and stresses. Most of them we will be able to navigate with the skills and wisdom we’ve learned or developed during our life. Sometimes, however, we encounter situations we don’t feel prepared for or have difficulty coping with. Or sometimes we have been carrying the same anxieties, the same feelings of unhappiness, the same discontents around for a long time and we are just ready to let them go.

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.
