My approach is psychodynamic, and based on the idea that each of us develops ways of viewing the world and ourselves through the different experiences that we have. Our thoughts, perspectives, emotions and behaviors develop in a context influenced by multiple and intersecting factors. My primary role is to respect, understand and support you as we discover together the dynamic nature of your internal world, and the ways in which this informs your interactions with the world outside. Please know that if I have openings, I will respond to you within 24 hours.

Many come to therapy to change patterns of relating to others and themselves that they feel no longer serve them. I believe that these patterns, hard as they may be now, likely played some important role for you in the past. Perhaps addictions, habits, or defenses met otherwise unmet needs in your life, but now have become limiting and compulsive. I see myself as your partner in a process of deep listening, a process which facilitates growth, healing, and new possibilities for relating to your self and others.

My training and orientation are mainly psychodynamic, but I utilize multiple theories and techniques, including CBT, mindfulness, family systems, as well as my background in cultural anthropology.
I see the therapeutic setting as a nonjudgmental space dedicated to the client, where exploration of the present and the past are made possible. I mostly work with professionals and graduate students who want to better understand themselves, their difficulties, and their relationships. I appreciate the opportunity of working with clients who are trying to manage the daily challenges of life, while also struggling with their relationships — be it with family members, friends, or with themselves — and to provide them with a supportive space to reach insights, identify patterns, and process life’s challenges and transitions.

I have some training in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Depression and anxiety are so very common and so little understood. I am interested in helping people come to terms with what is keeping them from living a contented life. Suffering is part of life. However, with compassion, empathy and understanding from an important other, it can be navigated successfully and dealt with in a way that allows growth. I want to help you get unstuck from the emotions, thoughts and behaviors that are keeping you unfulfilled. While this can be a lengthy process, it can be seen as a significant investment in yourself.

To most effectively help clients achieve their goals, I use evidence-based treatment models which I incorporate into a psychodynamic and existential approach.
Through 15 years of practice I have found that people usually seek therapy because they are experiencing something that is too difficult to bear without additional help and support. Life can seem unjust when bad things happen to good people, or when best efforts are not leading to desired outcomes. It is also true that these challenges are opportunities for renewal and growth. Especially during a time of crisis or transition, the ability to safely connect and openly share thoughts and feelings, while receiving genuine emotional support, clarifying insights, and effective tools for coping can be truly life changing. This is the gift of therapy.

My work initiates from a client centered stance and infuses principles and techniques from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and eastern theories and philosophies.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pittsburgh, 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.
