My approach to therapy is psychodynamic . I view the therapuetic process as a collaborative and empathic relationship of communication, exploration, reflection and insight. I believe it is the therapuetic relationship itself that is most important in creating the conditions for the deep exploratory work of psychotherapy and the possibility of change. The three goals of therapy are understanding, acceptance and change, where one is now, and what one is ready for could differ over time. We will begin where ever you are, clarify issues and establish goals. I hope I have an opportunity to meet and work with you.

I enjoy working with children and adults in a personalized approach tailored to each patient's unique situation. My theoretical background is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, play therapy, and psychodynamic therapy, but I pull from many sources in creating a treatment plan. I enjoy tackling diagnostic puzzles and working closely with patients and families to get to the bottom of what causes disruption in someone's life. Most consider me direct and no nonsense. I trained in Exposure Response Prevention for OCD treatment in both children and adults and enjoy these treatment challenges.

As a strengths-based therapist utilizing mindfulness, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral models of treatment, my goal is to help you become the best you.
It takes courage to reach out to another for support with life events, stress, and relationships. My goal in working with you is to provide support by observing and better utilizing your strengths while identifying what is getting in your way. Together we will explore how you can better manage symptoms of trauma, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and relationship stress while recognizing harmful coping mechanisms and behaviors that are holding you back, such as substance misuse and disordered eating.

Are you feeling powerless, a victim and at the mercy of life?

Are you experiencing sleep problems, constant tiredness, frequent use of over the counter drugs, and pain? Do you have attention problems/disorganization and confusion? My 30-plus years of professional experience has taught me that we all have something in common. Whether you're a butcher, a baker or candle stick maker you are a human being who wants to experience "peace of mind".

*Be aware I am not currently taking any new patients due to my schedule being completely full for the foreseeable future. I believe that healing can happen through the process of empathic and supportive counseling. I work with mood issues, personality disorders, grief, substance use and much more. I utilize a culturally sensitive and holistic psychodynamic style of therapy. This approach encourages development in all areas of life (relationships, thoughts, behaviors, emotions, careers, etc.), and pays special attention to unconscious factors and cultural identity (race, religion, sexuality, gender, disability, etc).

I have been a psychotherapist for 25 years. I see adults and adolescents. I do not see children, 11 and under. Psychotherapy works best when the process seeks change. The focus of change needs to be delineated through a collaborative relationship between therapist and client. As a Ph.D. I understand the importance of applying evidence based methods and staying updated in relation to the current state of knowledge. This underlies your effectiveness as a therapist. Fees are reasonable and customary. I am on most major insurance panels. My office is in a safe location. I am the sole occupant.

Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

I work best with healthy people who want to take their life, relationships, goals etc to the next level. I prefer clients who are committed to honesty and enjoy exploring their fullest potential.I use many different types of therapy including Gestalt therapy. Gestalt therapists work on helping to reprogram self-sabotaging patterns and belief systems. This work can be applied to improving relationships, health, motivation, goal achievement, and self-actualization. It is a very gentle process and results are fast and dynamic! I am also trained in Psychedelic harm reduction and integration.

Emotions tend to be at their root of what concerns us. The fashion we act when our feelings are something we deny generally causes our dominant issues: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness. With reflection and foundational understanding we can begin growing towards a better life every day.

I believe that the counseling process is a journey between the therapist and client where we collectively develop a treatment plan to address areas of concern. Although each person may enter therapy for different reasons, my intent is to identify and work toward goals of the client becoming a happy, healthier and well adjusted being.

I work collaboratively with each unique individual, providing safety and support to encourage growth and change. I believe for counseling to be effective, a sound therapeutic relationship should be established and each client treated with respect and dignity. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents and adults. Additional areas of expertise include anxiety, mood disorders, eating disorders, self harm, and trauma related disorders. I also offer coaching to parents on behavioral interventions and assertive parenting.

The everyday hardships we face along with the evolving pandemic has challenged and changed our lives in ways previously unimagined. Therapy can be a powerful tool to develop insight, learn valuable coping skills, and foster resiliency. I am passionate about empowering individuals who have felt unseen, misunderstood, marginalized, and voiceless. I find joy in helping people gain a greater sense of self-worth and confidence, find meaning and purpose, and courageously tell their story. My goal as a therapist is to help you live a transformed, empowered life and find the courage to be your authentic self.

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.
