I utilize a strength-based and psychodynamic approach that will guide you in re-establishing an authentic relationship with yourself and others so that you may show up lovingly and mindfully to the life you envision.
We often find ourselves feeling "stuck" or "trapped" in cycles that feel all too familiar, but that no longer serve us. My goal in therapy is to support you in creating a deeper understanding and awareness of these cycles, let go of old patterns, and to create anew. Self-esteem issues, relationships, and addiction are often avenues for which our traumas continue to affect our current reality. I've had extensive experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds struggling with issues related to addiction, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders, trauma, mood disorders, LGBT+, and attachment-related issues.

People come to therapy seeking help for a variety of human problems. You may be in severe pain, suffering the effects of trauma, stressful events or ruptured relationships. You may need help to achieve healthy emotional boundaries with friends, loved ones, co-workers. Perhaps you simply wish to become more consciously aware of the ways in which you unknowingly sabotage living a full, satisfying life. Although I typically draw from psychodynamic, family systems and humanistic principles, I am flexible, tailoring my approach to each individual. I enjoy the challenge of working with people to solve a wide range of human difficulties.

Through my training in Psychodynamic theory, Family Systems, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, I am able to support my clients in developing increased awareness of how the relationships in their lives have shaped their personality, self-esteem/self-worth, and their sense of safety in the world.
While I love working with women in their 20's and 30's, I am also VERY passionate about working with adolescents and their families! This is such a crucial time in our brain's development, and my goal in therapy is to assist my client's and their parents in learning how to manage the complexities of this dynamic period of life. Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and desire for autonomy. This can be very disruptive to the family system without the proper tools to manage the overwhelming emotions that adolescence is infamously known for, and unfortuantely some teens turn to unhelpful coping tools to avoid discomfort and stress.

With training in EMDR and a psychodynamic orientation, I focus on creating a safe relationship that facilitates growth.
Do you feel alone and powerless? Are you experiencing anxiety and lack of trust in your relationships? Do you keep finding yourself in stressful situations you thought you had evolved from? Try as you might, you just can’t get a grasp on developing healthy boundaries for yourself? A lack of balance within your life can manifest as a painful day-to-day. You’re searching for an integrated life, one where your emotions, your intuition, and your spirit can coexist. This comes with confronting wounds, developing loving boundaries, and trusting yourself to the fullest. Such a life is within your grasp.

Although my core orientation is psychodynamic (relational), my practice manifests as integrative.
Life demands so much from us on a daily basis. Our bosses want more of our time, our partners are slow to show love but quick to start an argument, and our families always seem to ask for more. Therapy is your space to escape from these demands, to take a breath and realign with who you truly are. I am passionate about helping clients illuminate ways they may enhance their relationships, embrace their true self, and gain the self-confidence needed to thrive in life.

There is nothing more valuable in this world than living the life you were destined to live and nothing more fearful than the passage of time and losing time. We spend so much time in fear of change that we often time sacrifice our own experience. Fear of failure, fear of the new, fear of criticism is just a few of the common reasons for fear of change. I would like to remind you that your experience is valid, that you are not alone and that there is hope.

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy with adults from an in-depth perspective of understanding each individual's uniqueness.
Suffering through hardships with the support of others is far better than suffering alone. Once we begin to understand the causes of our problems, discomforts and deprivations, then relief can happen. Psychotherapy is helpful in discovering the challenges and conflicts responsible for one's difficulties, often bringing about a new perspective that can help an individual view themselves through a lens of compassion and empathy. I believe change is facilitated when a person feels understood in their own pain.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Los Angeles, 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.
