My theoretical background has been influenced by techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Bowen Family Systems Theory, and the French Psychoanalytic tradition.
My hope is to create a relationship between the therapist and the individual that fosters positive and lasting change. To that end, I work patiently to ensure a sense of trust and safety. In addition, I feel I work well with individuals who go to therapy to be challenged, to be "unstuck." In these cases, I can be supportive while also being firm and direct. My approach is sensitive to the individual's life circumstance, their personality, and their comfort level with the therapeutic process.

Struggles with confidence, insecurities, unaddressed trauma, inappropriate coping skills and a host of other barriers keep us from living the best version of lives. These issues can result in anxiety, depression, impulsivity, disassociation and other mental health issues that do not serve us. In turn, these factors interfere with our ability to adapt during life transitions and engage in healthy relationships with those around us. However, this doesn't have to be your reality.

Do you find yourself "stuck" in old patterns? Are you having difficulty with managing stress, whether it is related to relationships or work? Do you find yourself unable to move past old hurts or pain? Through collaboration, therapy is a wonderful opportunity in which individuals can explore the answers to these questions. Working together helps create a safe and affirming environment in which individuals can learn how to live life more effectively. My therapeutic approach is flexible based on the needs of the patients, but is deeply rooted in the idea that much of one's suffering occurs outside of his or her awareness.

Individuals seeking psychotherapy are often at a critical moment in life when their inner pain and struggles are no longer tolerable and must be acknowledged, explored, and understood. Within the therapeutic relationship, the deepest and often unknown parts of ourselves can be gradually brought to light. While relief from specific disorders and symptoms is an initial goal of psychotherapy, devoted attention to the process of coming to know and accept oneself and experience a renewed sense of meaning and purpose is the ultimate aim, one that continues to unfold over a lifetime.

“Why should the world be over-wise, in counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while we wear the mask.” - Paul Laurence Dunbar This is an excerpt from one of my favorite poems, “We Wear the Mask.” The poem best describes how most of us navigate this world while carrying around masked depression, anxiety, trauma, guilt, and even addiction. Although putting on a “game face” is how we function to survive, sometimes that harms us more than protects us. As a therapist, I can help you safely remove that mask and take steps to improve your mental wellness.

Psychoanalytic Therapists

Does psychoanalytic therapy work?

Psychoanalytic therapy derives from the work of Sigmund Freud. In this type of therapy, discovering buried thoughts and emotions from the unconscious will help a person work through their difficulties and negative behaviors. Research shows that psychoanalytic therapy can be highly effective, with patients reporting improvement in mood, quality of life, and overall well-being.

How long are people typically in psychoanalytic therapy?

Traditional psychoanalysis is in-depth and is conducted in five sessions every week. Today, modern psychoanalytic therapy is less intense and normally incorporates as few as one or two sessions a week. In some cases, positive change can occur quickly. However, if the condition, difficulty, or behavior is deep-seated, improvement may require many months or years of therapy.

Is psychoanalytic therapy suitable for young people?

Children and adolescents can benefit from this type of therapy. Many kids and teens are often unable to form and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Psychoanalytic therapy uses specific techniques such as dream analysis, symbolism, and free association or word association; all of which can be useful tools for less-communicative young people. Through this therapy, a patient will hopefully make connections between what they feel inside and how the world works outside.

Can psychoanalytic therapy be done online?

Modern-day psychoanalytic therapy is very different from traditional psychoanalysis. While an individual can sit face-to-face with the psychoanalyst for multiple sessions a week, they do not have to. Today, psychoanalytic therapy can be effectively conducted online or by phone. The key is that the individual confronts what is repressed and avoided, and this can be done whether in person or over online video.
