We'll learn how to cope with the "now" using coping skills but we will also work to uncover where these difficulties may be coming from using psychodynamic , CBT, and EFT to build insight and awareness of how our past connects with our "now" and what cycles we can break to have permanent healing.
Do you feel stuck? That something is missing but you're not sure what? How about that you know what's missing and it's being true to who you are? Throughout the years of experience that I have working with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults I have learned that at the basis of all of our life experiences, we all wish to be heard, accepted, and to feel connected to ourselves, others, and our emotions. By being in a safe therapeutic relationship that accepts you as you are, you are able to unburden the heaviness that you've been carrying and with this new feeling of relief, there is hope for something new and healing.

You constantly think about food and dieting and want the cycle to end. You emotionally eat or binge/purge to escape. You struggle getting dressed because you hate your body. You want to diet but every time you do, you lose the weight and regain some and more. You’re tired of the rollercoaster and want to do something different.

It usually takes couples about 6 years to get help for problems in their relationship or marriage. While there are many reasons for that, that is a long time to be unhappy. Couples/marriage counseling works, even after infidelity and other significant events. Sexual and intimate issues are also commonly experienced but difficult to discuss. I have many years of experience and training regarding these challenges and create a safe an comfortable environment for addressing them. For individuals, I deal with the range of relationship issues, depression, anxiety, sexuality, and recovery from addiction.

Sometimes we all need help recognizing and understanding what life is trying to tell us. We are faced with challenges, crises and conflicts. Working through these issues, though incredibly difficult, help us to grow, become stronger and more self-confident. With respect and compassion, together we can explore the complex issues that are creating pain in your life and keeping you from being the "real" you. Often we don’t recognize our individual issues until they begin to impact our relationships; our spouses, our partners, our friends, and even our children.

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.
