"Many clients seek therapy with hopes to better understand themselves as people and how they relate to others, or because patterns in their lives have grown to become ineffective or dissatisfying. Every client is different and I tailor my approach accordingly. I believe that we are a culmination of our life experiences based upon the various facets of our identity, and how that intersects with the feedback we've received and internalized from others. My hope in working with clients is to help them gain insight into their patterns, to collaboratively help them make appropriate changes, and to help them live a life filled with meaning."

Good therapy can help you view your problems through a side-mirror.

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.
