Do you find yourself being attracted to romantic partners that leave you feeling unsupported and unloved, smothered and engulfed, or with whom you lose your identity? I have been very successful in assisting people with identifying patterns of behavior, attachment style, and communication issues that may have become ingrained and habitual. And then work to develop new ways of relating that are more effective and satisfying, and increase one's ability to be securely attached, comfortable with both intimacy and individuation in healthier relationships. Do you struggle with anxiety or depression, low self-esteem or lack of assertiveness?

My work with each client is integrative and dynamic. My "home base" is in contemporary feminist psychodynamic therapy, but I utilize techniques from CBT, DBT, internal family systems, mindfulness, and sensorimotor psychotherapy to tailor my approach to a client's presenting needs. I'm a firm believer that a person will not feel safe exploring difficult areas in therapy if they don't feel comfortable with the human sitting across from them. Therefore, I want you to see my personality and sense of humor as we collaborate, so that we can build a strong working relationship built on trust and mutual understanding.

I am a licensed psychologist who is trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Patients who come to me are looking to understand the significance and meaning of their most difficult-to-solve problems—problems like anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relational struggles, and self-harm. They are often patients who have not had success with short-term and/or cognitive therapies, and they have a sense that their struggles signify something more than mere dysfunction—that their problems point to something unique and unknown about themselves.

There is not a singular source to our suffering. Turmoil can originate in, and travel through, our bodies, minds, communities, families, and sociopolitical systems. Often, we respond to inner turmoil in two extreme ways. We may excessively worry, attempt to control, develop repetitive, troubling thoughts, or just obsess about our lives. Or we may do the opposite; we may avoid, isolate, refuse contact with situations we perceive to be dangerous or distressing, numb ourselves, or say 'it is hopeless,' and check out. Ultimately, we benefit from engaging thoughtfully with our grief and pain, as well as with our values and desires.

Welcome! Meaningful change and lasting healing happen through the co-creation of safe therapeutic spaces. Together, we can develop your capacity not only to feel better, but to be healthier. Understanding yourself is a powerful source of transformation and development. However, insight alone is not always enough to create psychological healing. I work with people to generate deep insight but also to create a new way of being and feeling in the world. For these purposes, I often incorporate both experiential and mind/brain/body therapies.

Throughout almost 30 years as a clinical psychologist, I've been impressed that the emotional suffering affecting us all, at times, has such universal causes. Insecurities and shame connected to childhood experiences over which we've had no control can take root, damaging self-esteem and emerging in symptoms of depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior patterns. Even without overwhelming childhood stressors, feelings of inadequacy, and once self-protective, now limiting "chains" of feeling/thinking/reacting can interfere with realizing dreams, weathering losses and meeting new life challenges in the areas of love and work.
