I utilize mindfulness-based, solution-focused, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral approaches.
I’m a LCSW with many years of experience working with adolescents, families, and young adults. I believe that we all are powerful and resilient beyond measure, but sometimes find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve us. The teen years are a time of inquiry and creation, but also a time of confusion, fear, and angst. I find delight in walking this part of their journey with them as they navigate their way into adulthood. I believe that one’s experience in therapy is most impacted by the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. To be seen and heard is the greatest gift we can give to another.

I specialize in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based therapy.
There are times in life when therapy can be helpful with facilitating insight and growth. My passion is in helping clients manage the cumulative long-term stress that is at the root of anxiety and depression, and which leads to mental suffering, interpersonal conflict, and physiological dysregulation. My approach involves guiding clients to recognize and transform the negative core beliefs, behavior patterns, and habit loops that fuel and exacerbate painful cycles. With curiosity and nonjudgment, I support clients as they develop new ways of relating, foster healthy lifestyle changes, and retrain their bodies and minds to relax.

In my practice, I draw upon a variety of theoretical frameworks including Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness-based, Solution Focused and Humanistic approaches.
I am a psychotherapist with more than 25 years of clinical experience. My role is to help each client recognize and become the authentic person he/she/they were always meant to be, and in so doing, find renewed meaning and fulfillment. I approach my work from a strengths-based perspective and appreciate that individuals who come to my office bring to the table their own innate gifts. Part of the therapeutic process is helping clients become aware of their own power and strength and to break down the barriers to fully unwrap those gifts.

As a seasoned clinician with over 20 years experience in private practice, university mental health and inpatient settings, I find the work deeply rewarding. Good therapy helps people to develop a stronger sense of identity and self worth, a safe setting to explore self defeating behaviors and newer coping tools, a place to deepen relationships and achieve greater satisfaction in one's personal and professional lifen. I am more interested in the unique person in the room than a particular theoretical orientation. I draw from insight oriented, psychodynamic, relational frames, and incorporate CBT, DBT, mindfulness and yoga therapy techniques.

My approach is psychodynamic/psychoanalytic, meaning that you and I use the therapeutic relationship as a laboratory within which to facilitate the meaningful changes that will reconnect you with yourself, with life, and with the people around you.
Life is change and, mostly, you've been rolling with the punches. But complicated life transitions can leave anyone at a loss. You might feel helpless, hopeless and alone in trying to cope with relationship issues and troublesome or debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and obsessions. With more than 15 years of experience, I help adults and families like you navigate the turmoil of challenging life passages including death of a loved one, chronic or terminal illness, relationship issues, separation or divorce, or adjustments to a different job, culture, gender, or sexual orientation.

My work is shaped by psychodynamic and somatic approaches.
I offer individual therapy for adults and adolescents, and specialize in working with women and teens dealing with the impact of sexual assault, childhood abuse, or other trauma. Other areas of clinical interest include relationship issues, life transitions, anxiety, and identity questions. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that allows us to be deeply seen and heard, and to see ourselves in new and transformative ways. It can build self-esteem and strengthen our sense of who we are and how we fit into the world. As we understand ourselves more fully, relationships with others become richer and more fulfilling. Therapy can strengthen our ability to adapt and adjust to the changing circumstances of our lives, freeing us up to respond more flexibly to the world around us and to experience a more enlivened way of being. For trauma survivors who experience overwhelming waves of shame and fear, a lurking sense of unease, or confusing physical sensations, therapy can help calm the mind and the nervous system, allowing you to move from reliving the past to feeling grounded, present, and whole in mind and body.

Journeying alongside clients during life struggles takes relationship building and rebuilding: relationship with self and others.

By combining interpersonal, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and emotion-focused approaches into my work, I explore how early development, attachment, and relational factors interact with the present to influence, maintain, and reinforce challenging thoughts, behaviors, and emotional responses.
Far too often, life does not go as we hope or plan. It is at those times that we can truly benefit from supportive others showing us that we are not alone, and the powerful experience of someone validating, while also empowering us to overcome, our challenges. I believe that therapy is a space that can offer this support, and I value the chance to help individuals navigate life's transitions and obstacles. Through my training and work experiences, I have learned to empathize, and work effectively, with college students and individuals across the lifespan, from diverse backgrounds, and with a wide-range of concerns.

Working with couples and men is awesome. My clients always surprise me with their intelligence and strength, even if muted by their immediate troubles. Focusing on the connection the couple does have, we can work on the skills to being our own individual within the relationship. Working with men often involves negotiating the contradictions the world presents, attending to power differentials and how they impact our inner world, discovering where our habits developed and how we want to change and grow who we are in the world.

No matter who you are, life is hard. The difficulties of our day-to-day lives often put us in an irresolvable bind: On one hand, the stressors are too big and too painful to ignore. And yet, while we may wish for and even utilize the support of those around us, for a variety of reasons, we often resort to going it alone. In these moments, therapy can be a promising new option: a confidential relationship rooted in honesty, understanding, and compassion.

Problems are not "just in our heads." Problems affect our bodies, too. We respond to them through our thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe that "talk therapy" is important. I also believe it is important to work beyond this modality in order to give people an opportunity to integrate cognitions, feelings, and the body. This allows people to release old patterns so they can act on experiences in new, more effective ways - and change becomes possible.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Charlottesville, 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.
