I use a psychodynamic approach to therapy which is an interactive process between the client and therapist.
Does it feel like something is preventing you from having the life you want despite your efforts to change? I work with clients to help them examine their lives and gain meaning and understanding of their experiences. Together we can resolve your emotional distress. I work with adults on a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, relationships, and major life changes. My experience working overseas makes me uniquely skilled to work cross-culturally.

I have advanced post-graduate training in psychodynamic therapy that allows for deeper and more meaningful work and more lasting change.
I believe that people need a therapist who has the ability to understand their experience. Once a person has the experience of being understood, a foundation is established to work through more vulnerable and difficult material. It is this proces of establishing a safe and understanding experience and working through of material that allows the possibility of change and the realization of one's true self and potentials.

Our therapeutic relationship is approached primarily with psychodynamic , narrative, experiential dyadic processing, and somatic/mindfulness techniques.
Life is complex and we can process it together. As a clinical social worker, my approach to mental health is rooted in unconditional positive regard for the client. We identify your strengths and the complexities of the systems you are a part of, and hold a trauma-sensitive space. I see the therapeutic relationship as a place for empowerment, understanding and welcoming your inner wisdom, seeking calm and resolve, and being gracious with ourselves along the healing journey.

My approach is psychodynamic .
I have 35 years of experience helping people find a way to live a richer and more satisfying life. Therapy is about empowering individuals and coming face-to-face with adversities. Clients are helped to explore past experiences that impact current emotions and behaviors. In order to change you need to resolve internal conflicts that lead to emotional distress, unwanted behaviors and physical symptoms. I help to create a safe place for you to be able to talk about the meaning of your feelings and thoughts thus gaining greater knowledge of self.

I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic , interpersonal, existential, and humanistic.
If life seems out of balance, you find it difficult to cope with stress, you can’t stop worrying, you are often sad or depressed, or you feel dissatisfied with relationships or your life’s direction, then perhaps psychotherapy can help. I specialize in helping adults and older adolescents (age 16 and older) overcome issues that range from anxiety, depression, mild trauma, anger, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, compulsive behaviors, and substance abuse/codependency issues to managing life transitions.

Drawing upon specialized training in relational, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral models, I work closely with individuals and couples to develop understanding and identify goals.
Looking for a therapist can be overwhelming, but it can also be an exciting opportunity for change. Perhaps you are seeking help overcoming feelings of anxiety or depression, or increasing connection and reducing conflict in a significant relationship in your life. Or maybe it's time to seek clarity about your past so that you can finally look forward towards a healthy, promising future. As a therapist with many years of counseling experience, I am deeply committed to offering an accepting, non-judgmental, and safe environment that can help you discover new possibilities for healing, positive change, and a better future.

We have multiple talented clinicians. Our approach to therapy is informed primarily by psychodynamic principles. The emphasis is on creating a safe, supportive environment in which to explore and develop insights into underlying feelings and thoughts. Together we will uncover deeply held assumptions that, although may have been useful at one time, today reinforce ways of coping in the world that are no longer effective or relevant.

My training was in psychodynamic therapy and I have additional experience with Mindfulness, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Cognitive Behavioral strategies.
I believe that everyone has strengths and can heal and thrive. From my work and personal experience, I know that healing and recovery happen in relationships with friends, family, partners, neighbors, coworkers, and therapists. Healing is holistic encompassing all of who we are. Aspects of ourselves that we may see as weaknesses can also be unique strengths. We all can find our own voice. Therapy is most effective when it is collaborative and tailored specifically for each individual. I encourage everyone to build a strong support system. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with people to reach their goals and improve their lives.

From an internship at a Women's Correctional Facility in Baltimore, to work at two prominent Eating Disorder treatment centers, to post graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I strive to meet patients where they are at as they uncover parts of themselves.
Life is full of relationships, experiences, and events that impact us and ultimately shape who we are and how we interact with the others in the world. I strive to join with my patients to work through the challenging and painful things in life so that together we can move towards greater understanding. The relationship between patient and therapist creates the foundation essential to explore and ultimately work through these difficulties that cause pain and struggle. In order to move towards healing we need to feel heard, understood, and accepted just as we are.

I provide a private and secure environment where it feels safe to share deeply personal thoughts and feelings. This psychotherapy process requires both courage and motivation to change. Individuals and couples will move from where they are to where they want to be. Initial concerns may be about self esteem, work or relationships. However, this effective psychodynamic process identifies hidden patterns and themes that cloud the present and hinder future dreams. Clients describe the process as "empowering" and "life changing", leaving them with increased energy, confidence and creativity for their lives.

My approach is a blend of treatment modalities stemming from psychodynamic , developmental/attachment, family systems and cognitive behavioral frameworks.
Through the process of psychotherapy, I work together with my clients to help them: develop a better understanding of their histories, triggers and patterns in order to get unstuck and create new endings to old stories; build coping skills and capacity for resiliency in order to face stressors and fears that are blocking growth; learn to live authentically in order to create a life congruent with what matters to them. I feel passionate about my work. I always hope to help people realize their worth and competency so they can feel empowered to take charge of their lives and live with more purpose and fulfillment.

I incorporate the latest in neuroscience research and pull from relational psychotherapy, mindfulness, psychodynamic , interpersonal neurobiology and cognitive-behavioral therapies.
Life is difficult. Feeling better is possible. We all have the right and the ability to feel some peace and acceptance about our lives; the things we can control and the things we can not. We may often believe the negative thoughts we have (that we often make up) and act accordingly. You can change your life, your outlook and the way you think and feel about yourself and your relationships. I believe changes and growth occur when an individual is able to challenge their thoughts, examine their perspectives and learn how to be true to themselves.

I enjoy working with individuals who are interested in improving their emotional, psychological, and physical health. Often times, stressors and demands can take a toll on your emotional and physical health and lead to anxiety, depression, anger, and physical consequences, such as problems with sleep and eating. I believe that the use of cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, psychodynamic , and interpersonal interventions are useful in this process. I also strive to build a genuine therapeutic relationship that helps you to feel supported and safe as you explore areas of concern and work toward growth and healing.

Does it feel impossible to imagine being close with someone who really knows your pain and strengths? What if you could be truly known and still held close, feel genuinely supported as your authentic self? Do you wonder what that would be like? You might be worried that your feelings are too big, your experiences too painful for others, and if you open up you won’t be believed. How could anyone who’s not lived what you have understand? I know it can be painful to walk around looking fine, but to be hurting so much you can’t let yourself or others really see it. I'm here for you.

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.
