My approach is relational psychodynamic therapy, with a focus on resolving trauma and attachment issues.
I am glad you found your way here! From our first contact, I focus on creating safety and trust in a therapeutic relationship. We need non-judgmental space to build insight into ourselves- our habits and patterns- and make desirable changes. The goals are honorable- to improve our relationships (with ourselves and with others) and to flourish more in our lives, finding more fulfillment on our journeys. I will be there, with compassion and curiosity, helping uncover how deeper memories, beliefs, and feelings shape your current relationship dynamics, way of moving through life, and perceptions of the world.

I utilize cognitive-behavioral approaches, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and psychodynamic approaches.
I view therapy as a unique relationship between two people - the therapist and the client. Therapy is a process that fosters acceptance and change of the challenges people face and helps provide clarity. My goal is to help create a safe place to explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences that cause you pain, which may lead to difficulties in relationships, work, and/or daily life. Through this process we will create goals and a plan to reach your specific goals. My approach is genuine, compassionate, and non-judgmental. As a therapist, I bring 20 years of experience working with individuals from many walks of life.

Are you stuck? Constantly second-guessing your choices? Self-doubt, low self-esteem or low-motivation all create a good deal of stress. These challenges often lead to chronic depression or anxiety which may keep you frozen, hold you back from taking a step forward to getting what you want in life. Creating a warm, safe, compassionate space is my way of helping you to begin exploring your individual needs, and what is and is not working for you.

Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Richmond, 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.
