I incorporate evidence-based practice techniques from modalities of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in my practice in order to address your individual needs.
One of the most courageous things we can do is to begin to understand our own story. What often precedes healing, however, is profound confusion and discomfort which deters us from delving deeper within. The process of growth is often accompanied by fear of the unknown and thus, can appear a daunting task. But you are not alone. My goal is to walk alongside you as you come to know yourself and navigate the path to a happier, healthier life. More importantly, what are your goals? What makes you feel safe? Therapy strengthens our insight by compassionately confronting us with the questions we have never dared to ask ourselves before.

I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as psychodynamic therapy and play therapy.
"What can children do when they feel worried?" Children experience fears and worries that make their lives more challenging. It can be overwhelming and frustrating for parents to see their child struggling with anxiety, but they do not have to handle their fears and worries alone. Many children can overcome their anxiety by learning ways to manage and cope with these feelings. I teach children ways to think and behave differently to help decrease their anxiety.

My interventions are varied ( psychodynamic , attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy) and individually based.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with nearly twenty years of experience treating children, adolescents, young adults and adults. My clients often come to therapy looking for relief from anxiety, depression, trauma, as well as pervasive negative thinking patterns and behaviors. These issues adversely impact the quality of day to day functioning and interpersonal relationships. In therapy, we work together to understand the root cause of the identified issues. This greater understanding helps us identify which coping mechanisms may be used to improve daily functioning.

For over thirty years, as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, I have helped adults, adolescents and couples to solve problems of living. My experience has given me a deep respect for the process of psychodynamic psychotherapy and its ability to help people lead more satisfying lives. Often, people seek therapy when they are feeling stuck in work or relationships or when they are experiencing depression, anxiety, pain or other somatic and emotional stresses. Therapy helps them replace ineffective or destructive patterns, leading to a much fuller range of life choices as well as deeper, richer emotional connections to other people.

I use Contemporary Psychodynamic and Attachment Theory with Humanistic & Anti-oppressive systemic lens to assist clients in their healing.
The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. What I am is enough if I would only be it openly.' C.Rogers. This quote is at the core of my work as a psychotherapist. I believe that the path to healing begins with the experience of being truly seen and celebrated with all your identities and parts that make the whole of you. I make space to process the effects of trauma and any form of personal or social oppression getting in the way of embodying your true self. I am honored to support you in staying in your power and navigating the relationship to yourself, others and theworld in a more authentic way.

Never thought you'd find yourself looking for a therapist, or had a disappointing therapy experience before? Much of the success of treatment depends on finding someone whom you can trust, who is as invested in seeing you make progress as you are. I have a solid track record working with children, adolescents, adults and families to create change in their lives...even when situations feel hopeless.

I am a Clinical Psychologist, and have been in practice for 30 years. I believe that psychotherapy is a collaborative process, and that good treatment can be life changing. I have a non-judgmental approach, and partner with clients to identify obstacles that interfere with self esteem, relationships and goals. Often times people get stuck in redundant, maladaptive patterns of behavior. When these patterns are identified and understood, more productive options become accessible. I am proficient in both CBT and psychodynamic psychotherapy, and typically integrate both approaches and tailor treatment to meet the needs of my clients.

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.
