I completed training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, and am certified in Financial Social Work, focusing on emotional stressors and how individuals relate to money.
My practice focuses on individuals and couples, ranging in age from 18 to elderly. I strive to create a safe environment in which to explore life stressors, patterns of relating with others, and how past experiences impact the present. Areas of professional practice include anxiety/depression, chronic illness including HIV, grief/loss, relationships, sexual issues, separation/divorce, LGBTQ, family planning, career transition, and finances. I have extensive experience with addictions, and work collaboratively with clients, whether the goal is safer substance use, reducing use, or abstinence.

Psychodynamic , Jungian, existential, IFS, and AEDP approaches give me a framework for listening and making sense of what I hear.
In psychotherapy, we work together to understand the meaning of your symptoms and the sources of your pain. The therapeutic process is in large part a careful encounter with the past in the hope of getting beyond what happened to you and discovering who you are apart from your history. It also includes the exploration of your beliefs, emotions, protective strategies, recurring patterns, and relationship dynamics. From a stance of compassion and curiosity, we put words to your experience and what has been unsayable before.

Understanding your journey is unique, I utilize both CBT and DBT amongst other psychodynamic modalities.
To seek counsel and to make the conscious decision to ask for help is an act of courage. It is never easy to be vulnerable to another, let alone, allow someone into your world. Forman once said, “It is an act of bravery to feel your feelings.” I hold this statement to be true. As your therapist, it is my hope to be able to develop a therapeutic alliance with you to walk the journey of exploring and overcoming whatever challenges and obstacles you may be facing. By implementing several different types of clinical modalities including CBT, DBT, and Psychodynamic therapies, it is my goal to be able to meet you where you’re at

Using an integrative approach, I draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic , supportive and solution-focused traditions that can be combined and tailored to fit your individual needs.
Successful therapy often boils down to learning how to make reasonable and realistic expectations of yourself and the people around you. We can figure that out together. Plus, humor and laughter can provide relief for life's challenges. We'll look at making changes mindfully, from a "could, not should" perspective.

I specialize in EMDR therapy and have 20+ years of experience working with adults of various ages who are experiencing grief & loss, depression, anxiety, difficult life transitions, stressful relationships, trauma and work-related issues. I strive to listen well without judgment and to tailor the therapy to my client's individual needs and goals. I realize how difficult it can be to seek therapy, and to focus and talk about the areas in your life which need attention and change, especially when you are hurting and feeling vulnerable. Of primary importance is the quality of the relationship and trust between us as we work together.

My first experience with therapy, was as the client. After surviving a traumatic event, I sought help from a therapist. Therapy proved so helpful, it was then, that my passion grew. While most of my experience has been in private practice providing individual therapy, I have worked in a county mental health clinic, an inpatient psychiatric setting and a residential group home. At the core of distress, we may find some form of unresolved shame, guilt, trauma, abuse or loss. I am here to provide "a safe place" to process those hurts, while helping you increase self-awareness and gain skills to lead a more fulfilling life.

*email preferred* Therapy can be a transformational process of self-discovery facilitated by deeper levels of awareness and change. I believe we have an inherent ability to heal ourselves, and my primary focus is to honor and trust your experience. Anxiety, depression, trauma, and other life stressors can interfere with living a fulfilling life, causing problems in your life and relationships, and leaving you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, lost or numb. I believe that therapy should meet the individual where they are within their unique set of circumstances.

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.
