My approach to therapy is eclectic, using a mix of person-centered, psychodynamic , and CBT to target each client’s needs.
Life comes with many challenges but seeking help should not be one of them. When you are struggling to make it to tomorrow, finding a therapist that best fits your needs is important. Those who experience anxiety and depression can have a challenging time processing and accepting their emotions. You no longer have to navigate daily stressors alone. As a therapist, I want to facilitate a safe space where you can explore your inner thoughts and feelings, process your traumas, and begin to understand and accept yourself. I know it takes significant effort to be here, and I hope you choose to make me part of your therapeutic journey.

My main approaches are Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy although I derive from other modalities based on your needs and goals in therapy.
Life is a maze with many twists and turns. Your choices and actions will determine the next steps in life depending on which path you decide to take. In order to find a deeper meaning to understand who you are, what you want or how to build healthy relationships, it is important to have a therapist that is empathetic and understanding. A therapist who will meet you at your starting point and guide you towards fulfilling your journey. We can be our biggest critic but understanding your core values, needs, wants, and goals will help bring out the best version of YOU!

It's not always easy knowing where to start, or where to go. Sometimes it's difficult to even find the words to express exactly how we're feeling, but we still feel it. Other times we may be unsure of how to cope with our feelings, or how to deal with the challenges we're facing. And that's okay, because we're human.

Life can be tough, and it is alright to be exhausted in the fast-paced world we are living in where so much is constantly expected of us. Depression, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, and feeling stuck are all too common these days. As a psychotherapist, I can assist you in understanding why you are sad, are repeating painful relationship patterns, have people-pleasing tendencies, and may struggle with self-esteem. All of us inherently have the motivation to make the changes we want – my goal is to empower you to make those changes and ensure you feel safe, seen, and heard.

Sometimes we become overwhelmed with life's many challenges and can't seem to get things right. Stress can overtake our lives and leave us feeling bog down, thus feeling stagnant or repeating the same negative patterns. Together I can help you achieve a personal sense of well being through counseling. My therapeutic approach is an interactive goal oriented approach using cognitive behavior therapy. Our thoughts, emotions and behaviors essentially create our lives! They can create within us tremendous sadness or overwhelming joy.

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.
