I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in treating children, young adults, and adults using an approach that integrates classic and modern psychodynamic theory with contemporary approaches including family systems, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based treatment. Therapy can be an invaluable part of helping individuals to overcome life's challenges. Whether our struggle is related to life transitions, loss, trauma or interpersonal difficulties, painful feelings commonly arise such as depression and anxiety. My goal is to provide a therapeutic environment and a collaborative partnership to individuals that seek relief from these painful symptoms and hope to achieve growth and positive change in their lives.

Starting individual, couples, or family therapy can feel overwhelming. By the time we seek therapy, we have often carried our pain for years, and it has now become unbearable. Maybe our relationships are falling apart or we are slipping at work. We may be keeping painful emotions at bay with substance use, self-harm, or even thoughts of suicide. We may worry that we are crazy, or that things can never get better. But the fact that you are here now, reading these words, shows that a part of you is ready for change.

My work is rooted in psychodynamic theory which is multifaceted and flexible to serve your individual needs. My focus is providing a compassionate atmosphere in which you are able to speak honestly as well as be deeply understood and respected. In addition, we'll use memories, metaphors, symbols, contextual dream analysis, and creative discovery to seek insights into what motivates or compels you. Through this work, we'll not just merely relieve symptoms, but also understand who you are, what experiences have shaped you, and identify emotional "blind-spots"- all to develop more adaptive and permanent ways of being.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Albemarle County, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Albemarle County listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
