Life brings about all ranges of human emotion and reaction. As we are all individuals, we have different perspectives on the challenges that tend to suddenly appear at our doorstep. It is a powerful realization to recognize when those experiences become too overwhelming to manage alone. Through a variety of psychodynamic , humanistic and behavioral theories, I work to use an integrative approach to therapeutic intervention in order to fit the treatment to the individual.

I utilize an eclectic approach drawing upon evidence-based practices relying largely upon Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic approaches to treatment.
It is an extremely brave step to enter into therapy. I am truly honored to be invited into the lives of my clients. I provide a safe non-judgmental atmosphere where my clients feel comfortable exploring their innermost thoughts and feelings. Therapy is about identifying beliefs, thought patterns and behaviors that hold people back from achieving their highest potential. If therapy is successful, a client will develop the hope, clarity, courage and self-acceptance necessary to make positive changes in their life.

During my master’s program I focused on the psychodynamic approach within interpersonal practice.
Life can be difficult, and managing the emotions and thoughts that come with it can be overwhelming. Whether that consists of relationship or family concerns, or school or work stresses, I can help to navigate the changes that life brings. We will work together to find the deeper meaning of what you are feeling and use that to bring positive change to your life.

Healing begins to take place when we have a space to truly feel heard, understood, and seen. I seek to create this space where you feel safe to be you. Healing is a not a linear, one-size-fits-all experience, and I welcome multiple perspectives. I work with individuals and couples on a variety of topics including relationship difficulties, trauma, overwhelming thoughts & emotions, low self-esteem, and life transitions. I enjoy being emotionally present and journeying with people to discover their unique way to healing their lives and living a more joyful life.

I am fascinated by the process of healing. To me, deep healing can begin when we have a safe place to tell our story. A place where we won't get interrupted, where someone won't try to "fix" us with their biases, where a genuine, caring person can give us the space to hear ourselves tell our story, to empathize with us, and to affirm us. I find people make the most significant strides in their journey toward healing when they evaluate alternatives and come to a reasoned conclusion themselves, without over-concern about what others think of them.

HIGH-KEY therapy is the best... but finding the right therapist is not the same as finding the right gadget on Amazon, I know. You don’t get all of the reviews or the fine details of the product, but I can promise you finding the right therapist will be more beneficial. I hope that I can be the practitioner you can bring all the "tea" to. I might be an expert in mental health but you are the expert in your life. Together we can combine our strengths to best support you :)

I work with a variety of individuals, from ages 15 to 115, whether they come in seeking symptom relief for depression or anxiety, or they are facing challenges involving more existential issues. I believe in building a strong trusting relationship with those I work with, and with this type of foundation in place, we can explore everything from grief and loss, to issues surrounding sexuality; from how you see your place in this world, to ways that you can best integrate yourself into it. Your conception of your own self-actualization is my most important guideline.

Sometimes we just need a little help figuring out life's challenges-----help sorting out how to make some of "those" big decisions...or how to pick up the pieces after a fallout, breakup or death of a loved one. Maybe drugs and alcohol have taken over you and the lifestyle you once knew; recovery may be a frightening thing to explore. Sometimes we are caught up in someone else's mess; a loved one with a substance abuse, alcohol or gambling problem. Finances may be causing conflict with others and within ourselves.Sometimes we need help because someone /something may be needing more

Relationship problems tend to bring self-doubt, loneliness, and sadness. You (and your partner or spouse) may feel alone, but in therapy you are not alone. You can talk with someone who listens instead of giving advice. Therapists listen closely to your complaints - to your discomfort, hurt, or confusion - while supporting the core values you cherish. We will join your quest to save the marriage (relationship), and have seen success with others, but there are no guarantees. Counseling can help people see themselves in a new way. Solutions tend to show up as you explore problems in a safe place (safe but also challenging).

Many people I have spoken to indicate that they do want an interactive relationship with their therapist based on trust, support and caring which are dynamics that are important for me to be able to provide to you in this process. Your view of your concerns and what you see as potential solutions are important as well. This is a team effort in helping you to move forward and live a fulfilled life. The 38 years that I have worked in this field has been a challenging and growth filled time and I continue to enjoy the process of helping others find their greatest potential.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
