Imagine what your life could be like if ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or relationship issues no longer controlled your life. Imagine being able to manage the stressors that continually weigh heavily on you. When you have tried to resolve these issues on your own, but haven't found the result you are looking for, it's time to reach out for support. It's not about working harder, but smarter. My job is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to allow you to find the balance and improvement you have been seeking.

We examine your past, as there cannot be genuine lasting change without insight into how patterns developed, but we are focused on creating the life you want NOW. I work best with clients who are motivated, intelligent, and verbal. Teletherapy means you can fit me into your schedule; it is NOT awkward after the first minute!

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 20817, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20817 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20817

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20817 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20817 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20817 or family therapy in 20817.
