When people stay beyond that brief initial period of basic counseling, we move into long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy to find and remedy the problem's root cause.
I am a caring, evidence-based, and holistic (consideration of the whole) therapist looking forward to challenging cases from people needing my expertise. Making use of a wide variety of therapies, from verbal to non-verbal, devoting much time on each of the select cases I take, and engaging in colleague consultations, I am often able to help with even the most challenging of issues. I also see children, doing family therapy even for the toughest kids. You'll see the difference family support makes, rather than my just trying to "fix the kid".

I often draw from psychodynamic theories to consider how early childhood experiences influence relationships and personality.
*** Currently not accepting clients*** Are you going through a difficult time? Feeling overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, anxiety, grief, or frustration? You do not have to go through difficult times alone. I believe good therapy starts with a strong alliance between the therapist and the client. The relationships I have with my clients are of the utmost importance to me, therefore I strive to make clients comfortable, in addition to creating connections with clients that are empowering, honest, collaborative, and affirming.

**I'm not currently accepting new clients at this time.** When others depend on you, whether it’s your children, partner, friends, aging family members, or job, it can be hard to find the time to take care of yourself. Sometimes, the stressors of life can feel like too much to manage alone. Maybe you’ve experienced challenging situations in the past that are hard to forget, or the expectations on you feel overwhelming or unmanageable. If you, your child, or your family are struggling to cope, you have already taken an important step by reaching our for help.

It is my primary goal as a therapist to help individuals establish personal and obtainable goals specific to their concerns, needs, and abilities. It is vital that in doing this, I am there as a guide and supportive figure only; their accomplishments will be of their own doing. The "game-changers" for my clients are the "AHA" moments; the moments they find themselves thinking about something differently from before. That moment can change a person, and it can change their destiny.

Deciding to seek psychological services can be a difficult step to make. Whether looking for therapy or an evaluation, the right clinician/client match is essential. As a psychologist, my goal is to respond to my clients with compassion, empathy, and in a non-judgmental way, as well as stay up-to-date with the most effective treatment interventions. Many of the people that I have successfully treated have struggled with low self-esteem, assertiveness difficulties, loss/grief, guilt, eating disorders, emotional eating, binge-eating, anxiety, panic, life transitions, divorce/separation, obsessive thinking, relationship struggles, "quarter life crisis," and depression.

For those who are going through a normal albeit difficult time coping with the loss of a loved one, you now have a place to go with it. If you are going through a long-term grief (more than six months with little change in your symptoms), I offer Complicated Bereavement Therapy (now known as Prolonged Grief), something few others are trained in.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Waterford, 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.
