My integrated approach combines psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, trauma focused and insight oriented therapies based on the needs of the client.
When feelings of irritability, fear, worry, anger, sadness, isolation, and emotional ups and downs become overwhelming, it can interfere with your ability to engage at work, at home, and in your relationships. Sometimes, there are deeper issues underneath. Sometimes, there are even events in your past that are impacting your ability to move forward. But you can make it through. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and comfortable environment to work through these issues together to develop strength in the face of difficulty. Restoration, renewal, and resilience are possible.

I utilize CBT, DBT, mindfulness practice, art, play therapy, and psychodynamic approaches in my therapy practice, as I believe therapy should be a holistic treatment approach that is strength-based and flexible for the client.
My core belief in therapeutic practice is that everyone has inherent value and strength, that with the right support, can be harnessed to create positive changes and meaningful growth. Offering a safe place where self-exploration, processing, and healing can be done, I will help you to build insight, resilience through healthy coping skills, and empowerment in reaching your therapeutic goals. Whether it is improving communication, changing behaviors, healing from trauma, or having a consistent and dependable ally in your mental health, I will support you each step of the way.

As I start working with my clients, I seek to thoroughly understand their problems and difficulties, the need for psychotherapy services at this time in their lives, and their expectations and goals of therapeutic treatment. I also explore how past events and experiences from their life contributed to the present problems/difficulties and current ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. My ultimate goal is to help clients better understand the root cause(s) of their current difficulties, work through their specific issues or concerns, experience new ways of being with other people, and live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

Living a life of peace, free from chaos and dis-ease is what most people strive for. But often we are confronted with anxiety, depression, mood shifts, trauma, stress, anger, grief, isolation, etc. My goal is to help you to restore health and well-being. There are some circumstances of the past that cannot be changed but improving your understanding of past events will help as we work together to create a better present (the here and now), that will lead to a better future.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Kensington, 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.
