My thinking and clinical methods are informed by psychodynamic theory and Shambhala Buddhism.
I provide a confidential setting where straight & gay couples and individual adults can address matters of the heart. I help you figure out what's wrong and consider what to do about it. The length of therapy varies from one-time consultations to long-term treatment, depending on your problem, interest, and resources. I work well with couples who fear they may not be able to go on together. I also enjoy working with recovering alcoholics and addicts, supporting their integration of therapy with the wisdom and fellowship of the Twelve Steps.

Using IFS, Sensorimotor, mindfulness, psychodynamic and other modalities, I am available to work with people of any age around most concerns.
Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

I use a variety of interventions, from psychodynamic to humanistic to cognitive behavioral therapy, to help reduce self-defeating behaviors, while developing new ways to perceive life events, interact in the world and have healthier relationships.
At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.

I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

Anxiety and depression are concerns for people of all ages and frequently contribute to feelings of stress. I work closely with individuals whose struggles are getting in the way of developing safe, loving relationships and achieving objectives as well as those who are facing major life transition and feeling overwhelmed. Providing a warm, supportive relationship, I work with clients to identify and change patterns of behavior that are troubling them.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to effective therapy. Using an approach built on empathy, openness, and warmth, I provide an environment where you can say anything that comes to mind and be yourself more fully and authentically. When we have our experiences heard and validated by another, it enhances our understanding and acceptance of ourselves. Working from a psychodynamic framework, I believe it is important to learn about our early life experiences and how that impacts our current emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Dupont Circle, Washington, 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.
