It's not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and discouraged at various points in your life. You may be feeling anxious or depressed.

As a clinical psychologist, I can help you gain insight into the nature of your struggles, process difficult experiences, explore new possibilities and make meaningful changes that promote greater satisfaction in life.

I utilize a collaborative therapeutic process informed by Psychodynamic , Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Interpersonal Psychotherapy.
People usually seek therapy during times of great stress, when their lives feel out of control, or when they are increasingly anxious or depressed, or when they feel stuck or dissatisfied, and are looking for change. My goal is to provide you a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere that will help you express yourself, explore and clarify your feelings, understand yourself and others, find options, and make changes in your life. I view psychotherapy as an active collaboration and seek to create a welcoming and comfortable base of strengthening support.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) trained in mental health issues and trained in Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some seek personal growth or are struggling with addictions, depression, anxiety or relationship issues etc. People are individuals who respond in their own particular way to therapy. I work collaboratively with my clients and utilize various therapy techniques depending on their needs. One of the most important factors in therapy is having a positive therapeutic relationship where trust can be formed and the person feels validated.

I draw upon CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Psychodynamic interventions combined with mind-body awareness to develop a holistic approach to well-being.
Hi, I'm Amy! I believe therapy is a supportive, non-judgmental space that allows us to confront what is not working, tackle problems, and understand goals. I work with adults and teens (16 years old +) who are looking to improve their wellness, manage emotions, develop self-esteem, improve communication, and cope with stress. Stress can be brought on by life transitions, trying to understand career/school and personal goals, navigating relationships, and much more. Together, we will develop an understanding of your beliefs and emotions, allowing you to respond rather than react in order to ultimately give you a sense of control.

I have a psychodynamic approach and have experience with CBT and DBT.
Are life’s stressors impacting your sense of well-being, your family life or other relationships? Anxiety and depression can immobilize us, leaving us feeling a loss of control and sometimes we just can't make things better on our own. Together we can identify which obstacles are preventing you from achieving your personal goals and then determine how to help you overcome those obstacles. By understanding our past and how we have come to our current situations, we can better prepare and take charge of our lives. Understanding and accepting ourselves is the pathway to freedom and happiness.

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.
