My orientation is primarily psychodynamic , incorporating elements from CBT and others.
Feeling listened to with care, respect, and curiosity helps you gain clarity and self-understanding. Patients tell me they feel stronger and more confident through our work, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we can examine and explore your life. We can untangle your strengths, conflicts and questions. We can identify things you keep doing even though they're not working for you. When we find issues interfering with your goals, passions, or relationships, we can work together toward change. More info at tppsych.com

I incorporate various forms of therapy: psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, relational therapy, strengths-based, solution-focused, and mindfulness based techniques.
I've found that the most crucial part of therapy is establishing a comfortable, collaborative therapeutic relationship and alliance. My goal is to create a safe, judgement-free space for a treatment experience that will be meaningful, healing, and supportive for a journey of self-discovery towards your goals and aspirations.

My approach is rooted in interpersonal and psychodynamic interventions, though self-knowledge is the ultimate goal.
I believe in the sacredness of a thoughtful, co-constructed relationship between client and therapist. Empathy and non-judgement are foundational to my clinical approach, and I also believe in therapy as a dynamic process. As such, I encourage clients to embrace challenges, welcome humor, and acknowledge their humanity. Your history, needs, and desires are unique – your therapy should be too.

I have a relationship-driven approach to helping clients live happier, more fulfilling lives. I rely mainly on psychodynamic , humanistic and existential perspectives. I have experience helping clients process grief, loss and trauma; strengthen relationships; set boundaries; and achieve general life satisfaction. I work primarily with adult individuals, couples and groups. My work with couples is informed by training in the Gottman Method and Imago. For couples in which one partner is leaning out, considering divorce but not completely sure it's the best path, I offer Discernment Counseling.

I draw on a psychodynamic foundation, and incorporate cognitive, behavioral, and body-awareness interventions.
My goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment in which clients can let go of old baggage and move forward in their lives with optimism and confidence. I work in a collaborative style that enables clients to draw on their own strengths and experiences, as well as on my expertise. My approach is pragmatic, drawing on whatever tools will help my clients to most effectively meet their goals. I delve into the past only as needed to improve current functioning or to help my clients make sense of their own stories.

My initial and recent training was psychodynamic , followed by exposure to family therapy.
How do you go from feeling overwhelmed and lost to clarity and a solid sense of self? Contemplating this journey informs my work as a psychotherapist. In my experience, the single most important factor that leads to significant change is the development of a trusting client-therapist relationship. This allows trust in new possibilities,and seeing yourself differently and considering this new sense of self. I liken therapy to reorganizing heavy furniture in a room and in some cases getting rid of pieces. The furniture represents the client's view of self. With acceptance and empathic curiosity, change can begin.

I have post doctoral training in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults.
"Picking up the telephone to make an initial appointment to see a psychologist, can be difficult for many people for various reasons. One may be feeling wounded, lost, or stuck. I am dedicated to helping children, adolescents, adults, and families begin to heal and get "unstuck" by freeing themselves of distressing and sometimes debilitating feelings such as depression, anxiety, and feeling out of control. I believe awareness and insight into your child's feelings and behaviors, and your feelings and behaviors, is the great gift of psychotherapy. At its best, psychotherapy is a rewarding, productive, and at times, fun experience."

I integrate various therapeutic approaches using the most current research including, traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy, Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), other experiential therapies, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I believe the most important thing about therapy is empowering you so that you can make conscious choices about your life. My style is active and involved. Working collaboratively, I can help you define your goals and see what is causing your pain, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and problems in relationships. As a child, you learned ways of coping with your environment that were safe for you at the time. Those coping behaviors became habitual but, as an adult, no longer work for you and interfere with your happiness and your ability to function at your highest level.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Takoma Park, 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.
