You may have a sense of not accomplishing what you would like to accomplish, or that you could use some support in order to succeed. You may be facing a difficult time in your life and recognizing that you can't go it alone. We can work together to explore your past and what possible impact it is having on your present situation.

I am open to working with clients from all walks of life, those who know what their goals are, and those who are uncertain about what they expect from therapy. My professional and lived experience helps me relate to clients who have difficulties adjusting to changes in life, as well as older adults, caregivers, and people of all ages struggling with family issues. A psychodynamic approach helps clients feel listened to and encouraged to develop their story, gain insight and self-awareness, & notice the connection between past events and current difficulties.

The psychodynamic approach helps me connect the client's current depression and anxiety to their childhood and parents' behaviors.
Have you had a car accident and lost everything, including your career and physical health? Did you have to undergo multiple surgeries to fix your body because of the accident? Are you becoming more and more depressed and easily angry at home? Does your family think you need some help? Have you struggled with a lot of anxiety & OCD since you were young? Do you want to make changes to yourself so your husband and daughters can love again? I use a person-centered approach to build rapport with clients. I provide psychoeducation about what depression & anxiety are and how therapy works to help reduce the unknown feelings.

I practice through a psychodynamic framework with applied MI, CBT, and DBT intervention techniques.
My ideal client is one with motivation for self-care, openness to change, and a desire to learn more about themselves and others. My ideal population consists of adults with a mental health diagnosis of anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance use disorder, and other increasingly complex diagnoses. However, I am also devoted to assisting those seeking help without a defined diagnosis and who are beginning therapy without a clear vision of treatment needs. I welcome working with anyone who may benefit from my skillset who is dealing with life’s many challenges and searching for a clearer definition and understanding of their stressors.

If you are someone who comes to therapy with the goal of improving your quality of life with some hesitancy and skepticism about the systems and structures that have led you here, then I would love the opportunity to work with you. I do not believe that it is possible to be non-judgmental. Instead, I utilize radical empathy and eclectic approach to clarify your needs and wants within your own lived experience. The therapeutic relationship is an important one, and I strive to model effective communication, healthy boundaries and realistic expectations in our work together.

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”-Shannon Alder. Is that normal? Why do I do this to myself? Why can't I just accept it and move on? When do I get the old "me" back? And how many therapists do I need to see before I get better? Questions like these can eat away at us for years, robbing us of the joy and serenity we crave. We all deserve to find the answers, but first we may come to realize that we need to take hard looks at ourselves.

I have experience working in community mental health, university counseling, adult psychiatric inpatient and outpatient, private practice, disability determination services of State government, teaching graduate level clinical psychology courses, and formal training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
Sometimes personal thoughts and feelings about life can be upsetting, disturbing, seem incomprehensible or even unchangeable. Over time these kinds of experiences can erode our personal sense of vitality, meaningfulness, freedom, and overall wellbeing. Although we know that some suffering is a normal part of life, suffering needlessly or endlessly simply does not have to be. In my office I provide a quiet, comfortable, respectful, and very confidential atmosphere.

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.
