I offer insight oriented psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and use a strengths based perspective with clients.
Are you struggling in your relationships with others, or with how you view yourself? Do you have problems at work, or are you grappling with a loss? Many times we may feel unhappy, or bland but are not clear about the causes and what we can do. Personal growth is a lifelong process, and at times, choosing to embark in a psychotherapeutic relationship can help. We all have the capacity to better understand ourselves and improve our lives. In our work together, you would begin to understand the relationship you have with yourself and how you navigate other relationships.

My theoretical orientation is rooted in humanistic, attachment and psychodynamic principles.
Our lives--and the lives of our loved ones--are so often challenged by issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, loss or grief. And we are often so pressured by the demands of every day life that we struggle simply to get through each day. While our relationships with others are usually our greatest sources of love and support, they are often the sources of our deepest pain. Through the process of therapy, we find the opportunity to look inward, heal emotional wounds and find healthier ways of being in relationship with oneself and others.

It's hard to accept you're at a point in your life where you're feeling stuck and you need help. And it takes courage to ask for it. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgemental space in which to help you explore the issues that brought you into therapy. To discover together the underlying patterns of thinking and acting which perpetuate your suffering. And to work towards increased awareness and achievement of your most deeply-felt personal goals.

Life's problems can feel much more difficult when faced alone. Perhaps you are struggling with a painful loss, are overwhelmed by fear, anger, loneliness or depression. You may be stuck in patterns of negative, self-critical thinking and inner pressure may cause you to feel tense and exhausted. You may feel shame and hopelessness and your means of coping such as avoidance, procrastination, withdrawal or overeating adds to your distress. I help people struggling with anxiety, panic, depression, phobias, eating issues, and relationship distress to understand these problems and develop skills to feel better and create happier lives.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Los Altos, 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.
