Therapy provides a safe space for clients to develop skills needed to lead better lives. I follow an eclectic approach to therapy. I tend to use a mix of person-centered, Cognitive Behavioral and Family Systems. I help clients explore their feelings in an environment filled with empathy, respect and nonjudgment. However, I also challenge clients to recognize and identify negative thought patterns that make life more problematic. We work together to change thought patterns and create new, productive coping strategies that ignite positive life transformation.

I have also had psychoanalytic training, and am a Kripalu Yoga Teacher - making me keenly aware of interplay between mind and body.
I aim to guide clients to uncover and understand their truths as they share their stories. Feelings around intimacy, loss, and shame which manifest as depression and anxiety are often central themes. Couples counseling, issues relating to sex and sexuality, co-parenting, divorce, and physical illness are some of my specialties. People become stuck in self-imposed limitations and self defeating actions and self talk. In our work, you will gain new perspectives that encourage your authentic self to express itself.

I've completed post-graduate psychoanalytic training and have a certificate in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Are you struggling in your relationship with family, a partner, or friends? Are you noticing low self-esteem or self-confidence? Or are you, as a couple, finding yourselves in the same pattern of arguments, looking for relief? When faced with these challenges, some of the healing power comes from being able to voice it in a safe space with the support and compassion of a therapist. I'll work with you to explore what you're going through in a warm, non-judgmental way. Some of our work together will involve exploring your past experiences - perhaps with a harsh or critical parent, or the absence of emotional support you needed.

I use a Psychoanalytic approach which basically means a kind of talk therapy that explores things you may be doing unconsciously, which may have a significant impact on the way you feel and behave.
The most meaningful thing that you can do for someone, is to genuinely listen. My goal for all who seek counseling, is to help you to be in the driver's seat to your emotions, guiding you towards your true potential, and helping you build true connections with healthy fulfilling relationships. I want you to know that it is okay to feel angry, sad, depressed, embarrassed, unintelligent, needy, and every other emotion; because, when you acknowledge and have control of these emotions, they can guide you to discovering who you are, ask for what you need, and identifying your path in life.

Psychoanalytic Therapists

Does psychoanalytic therapy work?

Psychoanalytic therapy derives from the work of Sigmund Freud. In this type of therapy, discovering buried thoughts and emotions from the unconscious will help a person work through their difficulties and negative behaviors. Research shows that psychoanalytic therapy can be highly effective, with patients reporting improvement in mood, quality of life, and overall well-being.

How long are people typically in psychoanalytic therapy?

Traditional psychoanalysis is in-depth and is conducted in five sessions every week. Today, modern psychoanalytic therapy is less intense and normally incorporates as few as one or two sessions a week. In some cases, positive change can occur quickly. However, if the condition, difficulty, or behavior is deep-seated, improvement may require many months or years of therapy.

Is psychoanalytic therapy suitable for young people?

Children and adolescents can benefit from this type of therapy. Many kids and teens are often unable to form and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Psychoanalytic therapy uses specific techniques such as dream analysis, symbolism, and free association or word association; all of which can be useful tools for less-communicative young people. Through this therapy, a patient will hopefully make connections between what they feel inside and how the world works outside.

Can psychoanalytic therapy be done online?

Modern-day psychoanalytic therapy is very different from traditional psychoanalysis. While an individual can sit face-to-face with the psychoanalyst for multiple sessions a week, they do not have to. Today, psychoanalytic therapy can be effectively conducted online or by phone. The key is that the individual confronts what is repressed and avoided, and this can be done whether in person or over online video.
