Our struggles are messengers. If we know how to listen, they can teach us about our deepest needs. Our struggles also bring wisdom about lost or disowned parts of ourselves that are searching for a way home, and the particular risks we may each need to take in order to feel more alive. Greeting these messengers with compassion and curiosity can loosen rigid patterns and storylines, setting us free. And even when it’s not possible to undo the source of pain, as in cases of trauma, it’s still possible to learn an entirely new way to dance with what hurts – and to commit to inviting joy, flexibility, and fullness in.

As humans we are built for connection and have a biological need to feel loved, understood, accepted and secure. When these key ingredients are missing from our most important relationships, it can be isolating and may lead to feelings of anxiety, loneliness, frustration or even resentment. If you find yourself struggling with such feelings, therapy can help you learn the necessary skills to reduce relationship tension and improve communication in your relationships (romantic, friends, family or even at work). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in behavioral, emotional and communication difficulties.

My goal in therapy is not to "fix" you, but to help you develop insight and awareness into how you have constructed your inner world and to what degree this has impacted your interactions with people and circumstances in your present life. People develop ways of viewing the world and themselves through their own unique life experiences. Our thoughts, perspectives, emotions, and behaviors evolve as a result of several factors which are different for every individual. When our own experience of what reality is clashes with others', we can feel overwhelmed with anxiety, depression, anger, or low self esteem.

The nature of psychological services to you will depend on your needs. First and foremost, it is important to see if we can establish a good working relationship as it is the best predictor of a good outcome. Your treatment will involve a collaborative effort and will require active work from both of us. My general orientation is psychodynamic. In brief, this type of work involves seeing how past family of origin and developmental factors might be affecting the issues that bring you into therapy and be impinging on your ability to have a more satisfying life.

At some point we can all benefit from what therapy offers: an opportunity to be deeply known and understood. Starting with a warm and collaborative therapeutic relationship, I work from the understanding that meaningful change is possible when we sincerely turn inwards and examine our basic assumptions about ourselves, others, and the world around us. I believe that therapy is a process of collaborative self-exploration into our values, needs, and ways of being with others. From this understanding, I work with clients to develop the critical skills of self-awareness, emotional-attunement, and psychological flexibility.

Life can be full of surprises, not all of them happy. There may be times when, quite out of the blue, you feel anxious, depressed, or just plain stuck. Even in the midst of personal, financial and professional success, you might still find you are struggling emotionally, interiorly questioning, wondering whether all the energy and time you have put into your life is really paying off. Often, you may not know what exactly is troubling you and yet feel quite certain that something is not quite right inside. When it feels this way, therapy can help.

I enjoy working with adults who suffer from low self esteem, anxiety, codependency, depression, and problem behaviors such as eating problems, self injury, isolation. I believe that every person vacillates between getting stuck in their limitations (egos, neediness, dependencies, self-criticism, self-absorption), and expressing their true selves (compassionate, living authentically). With awareness of our limiting beliefs often rooted in our upbringings, and with insight into our strengths, we can shed old emotional and thought patterns that no longer serve us and live a meaningful and satisfying life.

Psychodynamic therapy in Shadyside, 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.
