Partnering with you to improve the quality of your life: that is my goal as your therapist. I'm here to encourage, support, empower, and listen. During our first session we will determine your goals for therapy and what changes you want to make to improve your life. To best help you, I use an integrative technique, designed to meet you where are ready to start, and sessions are tailored to your needs and goals. One of the most important therapeutic factors, according to research and my own experience, is finding the right fit with your therapist.

I think the Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney sang it best, "I get by with a little help from my friends". All the interconnections with people, good or bad, have profoundly impacted who we are; the therapeutic relationship is another profound crossing of paths where deep calls to deep, and a little help on the journey is sacred. I work from a dynamic view of personhood and explore the interconnections of mind, body and soul. There is a profound dynamic in the therapeutic process, finding a therapist where one can feel connected to is essential to personal change through an authentic, vulnerable relationship.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Fairfax, 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 Fairfax are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Fairfax. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Fairfax
