"Personally, I know how difficult it was for me to get out of bed when suffering from depression and anxiety and to go about the everyday when concerned about having another panic attack. I know how valuable it was for me to have someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me or make me feel guilty about being exactly where I was at the time. The idea of "you should be fine", or "you have no reason to be anxious or depressed" is hurtful and doesn't help."

"My work revolves primarily around athletes of all levels seeking to build on their mental toughness, psychological well-being, and overall performance. I have been fortunate enough to work with clients from all different populations and backgrounds around issues like anxiety, stress reduction, depression, and coping related to performance. The demands put on athletes can be overwhelming and I am a firm believer that working to build a sound-mind can lead to better physical performance. My background in psychoanalysis, cognitive, and behavioral therapy shapes my approach to helping athletes identify the roots of their struggles."

I think that underneath everything, we are all wishing to be heard and Seen for whom we perceive our truest Self to be. That is why I strive to work with clients in a way that creates space for exploring the lens in which they view their sense of Self and their experiences. For this reason, I work collaboratively to set goals only after I have gained a greater understanding of how emotions hold unique meaning to you. "

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.
