I work with both teenagers and adults from a psychodynamic perspective, in a direct and straightforward manner.
For most people, the decision to enter therapy occurs at a difficult time in life. I recognize that those seeking treatment are often in pain, and I try to find both immediate and longer term ways to alleviate that suffering. I work with both adolescents and adults and help them to gain a greater sense of awareness of their own feelings and the impact they have on others, thereby increasing their options as well as their sense of mastery and autonomy. In doing so, I can help you become aware of avenues and options that never before seemed like possibilities.

For many people coming to therapy is the most important step in their life. They learn to handle difficult emotions and behaviors that had blocked them off from being happy. In other words they learn how to get out of their own way and live joyfully.I am experienced in treating issues related to anxiety,depression,anger, trauma, bereavement, work stress and illness and accidents. I've worked productively with individuals,couples and families(including those with step-family issues).I use solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapy.I match the type of therapy to the needs of the patient.

Informed by a psychodynamic perspective, I work with adults around a range of issues.
New clients often ask, "how will talking to you about my problems help me?" All of us on this web site would probably agree that working with a caring and interested therapist can have positive, even dramatic, results - - whether that means the relief of depression and anxiety, feeling better and happier in your intimate relationships, dealing with loss, or generally liking yourself better. What is the first meeting like? I want to hear about your immediate concerns, to get to know something of your life story, and to see how we might work together to achieve your goals.

I am solutions-oriented and integrate family, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and trauma-based therapies .
Everyone encounters problems which have the potential to negatively impact our sense of relational, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Often, I work with people who have adopted patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that leave them feeling 'stuck' in repeating faulty problem solutions, With my support as a trained mental health professional, therapy represents an opportunity to slow down, develop an expanded view of 'the problem', understand what happened to block problem resolution to date, renew hope, develop and implement a roadmap to get where you want to go, and, ultimately, achieve the balance essential to realizing one's full potential.

I typically work with clients who tend to feel any combination of the following: depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, over-stressed, or "stuck." Things aren't working in their life. They're at a loss as to what to do to improve their sense of well-being. They would love to be happier but what they're doing isn't working. So they're reaching out to see what can be done to get things on track.

People are helped most by considering all aspects of their lives, their strengths as well as the areas giving them problems. Therefore, I will treat you as a whole person, not just as a diagnosis. We will work together to understand how your past is affecting your current situation, and get to the bottom of your issues, for achieving deep, lasting changes. Speaking freely and without inhibitions with your therapist is essential and I work to provide a warm, safe environment for you to do so. I also offer group therapy, which is very effective when combined with individual sessions.

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.
