We are born as relational beings looking for others to connect with and trust. When early relationships are unavailable or traumatic this leads to dysfunctional ways of relating to others and getting needs met. As a therapist I work with couples, families and individuals in discovering their unhealthy ways of communicating and coping with stress and replacing these with healthier skills. I also work with individuals and issues such as Anxiety, depression, grief and addiction. My desire is to walk through your journey with you providing a safe place to process and learn new healthier ways of managing your life struggles.

I am passionate about helping women. Society has high expectations of us as women and we face these pressures daily. Let’s also get real for a minute... We pressure ourselves with being perfect and then torment inside when it's not possible. We drain ourself out and forget that we also need to take care of ourselves and sometimes that means our trauma too. Whether it is low self-esteem with a loud internal critic, not knowing how to identify your needs, or a traumatic experience in your way, I will help you figure out what you need moving forward to enjoy life. YOU are worth it!

Are you tired of facing all that you've been through alone? Therapy can be an amazing experience where you allow a trusted therapist in to your life so that you no longer face these challenges alone. In working together, we can discuss ways to tolerate the discomforts of past and current pain, while also looking deeper to discover the causes of these in order to bring about healing and freedom.

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.
