In my experience, the best way to address a problem is head-on. If we avoid the things, people, and places that are stressing us out we only prolong our feelings of anxiety and depression. I believe this policy sticks whether we are dealing with avoiding cleaning a messy house, walking on eggshells with a significant other, or feeling at a loss when your child just doesn't listen. My solution-focused approach to problem solving is ideal for assisting you in many of life's challenging moments.

Making change is a big part of counseling. In order to make change there needs to be motivation and with that motivation comes strength. Whether a client is experiencing anxiety, depression, abuse, crisis, conflict, behavioral issues, substance use, etc., it is important to find the inner strength each person has and use that to their advantage. Let me help you find your inner strength! I am trained in EMDR and becoming certified in Sand Tray Therapy. I am also working towards my License as a Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

From the outside, your life looks wonderful. But somehow, it doesn’t feel wonderful at all. Everything in your life seems fine except for you. You are walled off from your feelings. It’s hard to connect to yourself and even harder to connect to other people. When asked what you want or what you feel, you have no idea. At times, you feel a deep emptiness, as if you’re hollow inside. When in a crowd, you feel lonelier than you do when you're by yourself. When things go wrong, you blame yourself so harshly that it’s downright mean.

I am only accepting testing clients at this time. Throughout life, many of us will experience some sort of emotional issue. Some we can handle on our own, and others we may want to explore on a deeper level with a specialist. I look forward to working with those who are brave enough to face these issues head on, and to explore some of the underlying reasons why these issues have manifested. I specialize in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, yoga therapy, bariatric evals, LGBTQ concerns, adjustment disorders, as well as testing and assessment (ADHD and PTSD Screenings, neuropsychological and psychological/personality testing with report).

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.
