As a licensed psychologist, I provide individual therapy for adolescents and adults, specializing in the assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, learning difficulties, social dysfunction, and trauma. I use various evidence-based practices in treatment, primarily employing psychodynamic techniques and drawing upon cognitive-behavioral strategies as necessary. I believe in an integrative approach to therapy, one in which treatment is uniquely tailored to best address the needs of the individual or family.

My approach combines a psychodynamic background to understand the context of the patient's life experiences, with cognitive behavioral and mindfulness skill development to improve wellness, emotional balance and the development of healthy relationships.
I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step in seeking treatment. I have extensive experience in guiding my clients through change and growth. Depression and anxiety occur across all ethnic groups and walks of life, however these challenges are very responsive to psychotherapy. Individuals with a history of abuse or other adverse childhood experiences are more likely to need assistance in adulthood. I work with clients to decrease symptoms and create improved emotional health, allowing them to move forward with their relationships and life goals.

I have been trained in a variety of treatment methods, including humanistic, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapy.
I enjoy working with adult individuals and couples in psychotherapy. Many of the individual clients I see are working through relationship issues (past or present), whether originating from family of origin, romance, friendships or the workplace. I frequently train individual and corporate clients in stress management practices. I have a master's degree in rehabilitation psychology, which informs my work with clients struggling with acute or chronic health conditions. I like to help clients become their own advocates in management of their medical conditions. I believe knowledge is power and a great antidote to fear and depression.

My clients come from diverse backgrounds but all have one thing in common: they are bound by past traumas that continue to control their present day. My primary theoretical approach is one of interpersonal and holistic psychology that draws from acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamic , existential, feminist, and multicultural counseling work. I use meditative practice and applied mindfulness as well as a holistic trauma model to allow my clients to find peace within themselves while also equipping them with the skills needed to continue their personal growth after therapy is complete.

Treatment can range from long-term psychodynamic work to short-term emphasis on specific problems or personal issues.
I believe one of the most important aspects of psychotherapy is to establish a safe, collaborative, and mutually respectful relationship where profound personal growth can occur. The atmosphere in my office is warm, accepting and open. My patients are insightful, creative, intelligent people who are working to attain specific goals, make difficult life transitions, or work through the internal and external struggles of previous experiences. My primary ares of interest are sexual trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relational problems and grief. I also conduct formal psychological assessments when necessary.

I am a psychodynamic , relational therapist who has seen proof that everyone has islands of trauma - some are big, some are little.
Something is bothering you. Maybe it has always been there, or maybe it just reared its ugly head. Whatever the case – a hurt, a wound, a trauma - it leaves you feeling disoriented, unsure of which way is your true north. You’ve told yourself countless times, or heard well-meaning friends and relatives say, “Just get over it!” Yet, try as you might, those words are a dead end. Every step seems to take you further away from the things that matter most: your relationships, your passions, and worst of all, your sense of self.

My treatment approach focuses on the use of cognitive behavioral therapy within a psychodynamic and family systems framework.
Are you frustrated because you seem to be having the same unproductive conversations with your spouse, boss, or teenager? I specialize in helping couples and families achieve healthier relationships, better communication, and more effective coping skills. I also treat individual adults and adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, grief, and eating disorders. I have extensive experience in brief problem focused therapy as well as longer term, more intensive psychodynamic work. Many of my clients are high functioning, professional couples in stressful careers, who are trying to balance the demands of their profession with their individual needs and those of their family.

I am trained in EMDR, DBT, CBT, psychodynamic and family systems approaches.
Does this sound like you? No matter how hard you try, negative thoughts fill your head, swimming around, taking over your day. You try so hard, but everything you do feels wrong, imperfect, and uncomfortable. Sometimes you may feel full of energy and then crash or become tearful and sad or angry and irritable. Sometimes you may have nightmares or flashbacks or lose time just sitting and thinking. Perhaps you have felt this way and gone through the same behavior patterns your whole life. Or maybe, these feelings are brand new, and you have never felt this way before. For whatever reason, you are seeking help and I am glad you are.

My approach to therapy is based on an interpersonal/ psychodynamic /family systems theoretical foundation.
Many people struggle with uncertainty in handling new situations or resolving old problems. You may be experiencing difficulties in your relationships with family, friends, bosses and coworkers, or struggling with long-term issues related to difficulty achieving personal goals, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, or other issues. Past ways of dealing with problems may no longer be working and/or have become self-defeating. Please contact me to discuss how psychotherapy might help you make different choices as you deal with current life stresses, or long-standing problems.

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.
