I use psychodynamic treatment for long standing issues that run much deeper from childhood and adult trauma.
Depression, anxiety, work and social stress, parenting and relationship issues are the main reasons people come to see me. I have been very successful in helping clients rediscover their inner strengths and regain stability in their lives. Some of our conflicts are circumstantial, and we only need direction or guidance to get back on track. Other issues are long standing and run much deeper, and as most people recognize, require special knowledge and understanding to work them through. I believe that we are all struggling to adapt and get along. We all want to be happy with our selves and our lives.

I take an integrative approach to therapy, rooted in psychodynamic and relational perspectives.
My hope as a therapist is to work with the client to cultivate a safe and courageous space to begin to explore from a holistic lens. We each come into this work through a unique context of intersecting identities and experiences that deserve to be honored. My work is trauma informed and I understand trauma as something that can be experienced interpersonally, generationally, and systemically.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Royal Oak, 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.
