If you’re here perusing these therapist profiles, it’s probably because something’s not quite right. Maybe you hate your job, feel stuck in it, or have trouble finding one that feels congruent for you. Maybe it’s some turbulence occurring in your relationship– or the absence of a relationship when you long for one. Or perhaps something awful happened and you just can’t get it out of your head.

Accepting new clients for groups only. Are you looking for guidance in a process of self-examination, growth & healing? My clients say our work provides clarity, awareness and increased confidence. They report learning to reduce stress, anxiety, depressed mood and self-destructive behaviors. I also provide support in the midst of life transitions (new/expected parenthood, divorce, career change, retirement, etc.). Perhaps you'd like to re-evaluate the level of stress or anxiety you are willing to accept, how you handle stress, or even how you celebrate success. I'd be honored to collaborate as you design a life you love.

I believe pleasure and intimacy are key components to realizing your own worth. Whether you are looking to connect more deeply to yourself, a partner, or a community, I am here to reflect your own capacity for joy and fulfillment back to you. Therapy is about connection, and I bring my openness, curiosity, and sense of humor into my sessions. I use a blend of techniques from emotionally-focused therapy, somatic psychotherapy, sex therapy, and yoga to work with both individuals and partners.

It can be both rewarding and vulnerable to begin or continue therapy: I create a warm, non-judgmental space for reworking old patterns that may not serve you anymore. Life experiences, environment, circumstances, and cultural systems of power all shape our understanding of ourselves, of others, and of the world around us. Together we can explore what matters to you most, where you may feel stuck and how you can find more ease. To inform our work, I primarily draw on your history and relational experiences, your own body’s feedback, information from contemporary neuroscience, and our in-session interactions.

With over 20 years of professional experience treating depression, anxiety, relationship issues and struggles with food, weight, body image, and disordered eating, I believe all mental health symptoms are there for reasons. Our work is to uncover those reasons and discover more effective means of caring for self. Exploring family dynamics, life experiences, personal beliefs, and both conscious and unconscious aspects of Self are all part of the therapeutic process. In therapy we work with the conscious and unconscious material which surfaces in the psychotherapy room as well as bringing attention to thought and behavior patterns, developing insights, and strategizing solutions.

Struggling with depression or anxiety? Breaking patterns is hard, but you know you want change and meaningful redirection. Painful memories and recurrent conflict can strain relationships. Work stress gets in the way of being present and feeling fulfilled. People often work with me to get things moving when they feel blocked or stuck, to develop calm where uncertainty has them off balance. Our work will reveal insight to restore stability, address trauma, and change outlook towards realizing an improved sense of self. Together we can work to identify and harness strength, addressing challenges with new clarity and inspiration.

Or, you have recurrent distressing thoughts that plague and distract you from the tasks and rewards of life. You are sad, scared or worried about your past and future. Releasing your potential requires a set of technologies to liberate you from all these human dilemmas. Luckily, these tools exist--now more than ever before.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Chapel Hill, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chapel Hill are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chapel Hill. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chapel Hill

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Chapel Hill you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Chapel Hill and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Chapel Hill or family therapy in Chapel Hill.
