My approach to counseling uses an eclectic style with elements of Psychodynamic and Person-Centered approaches.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, teens, and clients of all ages. Most of my experience has been working with children, adolescents, and teens who are experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and trauma processing. I have a special interest in working with children who are currently in foster care as well as those who have been adopted or are in the process of adoption. I enjoy working with clients who desire to find healing after experiencing trauma.

The clinical approach I use to counseling is targeted to attend my client's needs. My preference is the Psychodynamic approach where the client and I explore the origins of their psychological discomfort and use the insights to the healing process incorporating changes in the present. Some clients however come to counseling with a sense of urgency, a need to work objectively in a specific problem with the aim of a faster solution focused to their crisis, and in these cases I support and stay present with the client's needs.

Methods of facilitating the individual range from cognitive behavioral modification to the psychodynamic interventions and insight strategies which enhance awareness of barriers to a functional and fulfilled life.
My primary focus is to facilitate the empowerment of the individual to reach his/her fullest capacity for optimum health and happiness. In the addictions problems, rehabilitation toward these goals is essential in the recovery process.

My approach to helping is based on my client's perspective rather than my own. I contend that appreciating and respecting the client's experience for what it is, is essential to productive therapeutic growth. I view counseling as a highly personal and subjective experience, where developing an empathic, connected and trusting relationship is imperative; it is through the safety of this connection that clients can work toward positive change. While I have had extensive experience working with a wide variety of clients, my specializations include women's issues (including domestic violence and trauma), relationships, GLBTQI issues, pregnancy/infertitility issues, internet addiction and couples work.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
