I work with individuals, utilizing techniques from psychodynamic therapies.
Every person is unique and capable of realizing his/her potentials in an optimal environment. However, life is filled with so many challenges and it is not unusual to feel discouraged or unable to meet those challenges. Building a relationship based on acceptance and trust with my clients is my priority. I listen carefully and help them develop an understanding of what has led them to unsatisfying thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We explore and identify how significant past experiences have shaped their present life.When working with teens, parents are essential part of the therapy and always welcome to collaborate.

My somatic, psychodynamic approach incorporates personal imagery, creativity, and the body.
“Start close in…” What in you is hungry for answers? What might your life look like if you were deeply well fed by your choices? People come to me with hunger pangs. They're hungry for deep connection - to themselves, to a partner, to a job, to their life. They come to me craving answers - carrying persistent questions that may be contributing greatly to feelings of starvation, of wanting more. I partner with people who are searching for clarity, purpose, and more meaningful connections both personally and professionally. My clients seek to be better nourished by their life choices and feel more balanced in their relationships.

I use a variety of therapy models with my clients: including psychodynamic , cognitive-behavioral, and strengths-based.
Every human being experiences difficult moments in life. Those who choose to begin therapy are best able to navigate these times and see change they desire. I enjoy helping individuals achieve their goals. These goals include overcoming depression, anxiety, or anger; acheiving stabilizing peace to ongoing family conflict; or successfully navigating a major life transition. I've spent more than a decade helping adults, parents, teenagers, children, and families with their unique situations.

My therapeutic lens is rooted in the tenants of social work and social justice. As a clinician I meet clients where they are and recognize that no person functions outside of their environment. So as we delve into issues of mental health symptoms, we will also be investigating how society at large plays a role in our health. I lean heavily on psychodynamic processing and a focused mindfulness practice called Brainspotting. I also engage clients through CBT, DBT, and narrative therapy. I am LGBTQIA+ friendly and am continually in the process of being anti-racist.

Through insightful psychodynamic approaches, I engage what lies beneath and the potential that lives within the unthought known.
I have a full and deep life of experience to draw from in meeting my clients in sacred space. The loss of a son, a marriage, a career, accumulated material rewards, and most importantly, the potential of life unlived; dreams unfulfilled. This is soul work. Prepared by the vulnerability of my story, I hold insight and compassion for those whose burdens must be eased into, passed through, and reborn into new purpose, for the quality of our life is in our overcoming. Navigating the troubled waters of depression, anxiety, relational fissures, and archetypal energies is the first threshold of a healing journey.

I focus my practice on Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic , and Person-Centered theories, which I believe are important to identify my clients’ needs and to develop goals together.
I am skilled at helping through the day to day struggles of anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, although my door is always open. Therapy should feel like a safe space to begin working through the tough stuff that has come up in life, and my goal is to help you discover the tools and skills to press on in this journey no matter what the circumstances. My job is not to tell you what to do, but rather to support you as you journey unfolds.

I'm experienced in working with folks experiencing anxiety, depression, mood variations, and the multitude of responses that can result from trauma.

Psychotherapy accelerates a person's effectiveness and healthy functioning in the world s/he lives in. At the foundation of this process is genuine trust and respect, one that allows opportunities for exploring personal resources and strengths, habits of behavior, internal conflicts, disruptions of self-concept or attachment, familiar ways of thinking and relating, or to find ways to continue on the path chosen. Psychotherapy creates new distinctions about behavior and world view so as to act and view your self, relationships, and circumstances in new ways. Dr. Stormberg's approach is what Carl Jung described as "a practical psychotherapy to fit people for life."

Sometimes the ways of the world and personal stressors conflict with what we need to be ok. It can often be difficult to manage and cope with how racism, violence, employment, chronic illness, relationships, parenting, abuse, and past trauma impacts one’s mental and physical health. If your goal is to learn who you are and how to live your authentic self, you have arrived at the right place. I utilize Integrative therapy, which makes room for inclusivity and flexibility at meeting client differences. This includes Cognitive Behavioral, DBT, Family Systems, Gestalt, etc. Diversity in people demands diversity in approaches!

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.
