"**I am not currently accepting new clients.** People come to me feeling disconnected from themselves and what matters most to them in life. For nearly ten years, I have helped people recover from upsetting experiences and toxic relationships that have shaken them to their core. Many of those I help also work in creative fields or are entrepreneurs, the work stresses of which can collide with traumatic pasts and lead to feeling unsettled and unsure of how to relate to people both personally and professionally."

"The relationship between client and therapist is the most important factor in successful therapy. The process of therapy is part science and part art. The science of therapy provides us with data that tells us which therapeutic strategies work best for specific problems. For me, knowing the science is crucial; using it, however, is an art. The art of therapy starts with the cumulative life experiences of the therapist--this is crucial in finding a good therapist and should not be discounted. A therapist should also be kind, empathic, humorous, direct, open, and honest."

Every parent finds challenges - from postpartum depression, to child behavior problems, to family stress and conflict. Parenting often reminds us of relationships with our own parents and can bring up memories of trauma and abuse. Divorce, adoption, and other changes in your family might introduce new difficulties and questions.

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.
