My primary approach is psychodynamic and psychoanalytic, recognizing that therapy is a journey of self-connection and discovery.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Life Coach. My approach to therapy is to help clients identify, understand, and ultimately change the areas in their lives that have contributed to emotional and relationship pain. I deeply believe that to have the breakthrough we need in current relationships we must understand our history and how it profoundly colors and impacts us as adults. Once we learn to own our history, it no longer owns us.

TESTING slots CURRENTLY AVAILABLE! One of my favorite things to do is understand how people work. This drives my treatment approach to include deep exploration of symptoms to get to the root of maladaptive patterns. Through authenticity, empathy, and using the therapeutic relationship as a healing/corrective experience, I join my clients in their journey toward health. I often utilize psychodynamic interventions, but use other modalities as well to tailor treatment to each individual’s needs. I specialize in personality disorders, and I especially enjoy working with narcissistic and borderline personality structures.

I practice from a psychodynamic basis, but also integrate in other techniques depending on client need, as well as what is supported by research.
Deciding to come to therapy can be a difficult decision; one that takes courage and often comes with some anxiety and ambiguity about what the process will entail. It is my belief that the foundation for a positive experience in therapy begins with the therapeutic relationship. Establishing a base of trust and rapport from which to grow as we work towards your goals will be the initial focus of treatment. It is important for you to feel comfortable with me; I will do my best to facilitate that process and to be transparent about what you can expect from therapy.

We all face difficult times in our lives which lead us to seek help. Psychotherapy helps you become more resilient, find inner strength and improve your sense of self – all of which aid you in your quest to live a more open, genuine, and fulfilling life. Together we examine areas of struggle and work to identify new ways of being more engaged and effective in relationships and at peace with ourselves. I will work with you in treatment modalities ranging from short-term brief, CBT, to longer-term analytic work. I have experience treating a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety and trauma.

In addition to using CBT, I use EMDR, narrative, person-centered and psychodynamic interventions.
I believe most of us have an innate desire to be heard; to be seen as we are. We are hard-wired for connection. Achieving a healthy sense of self is fundamental to authentic and wholesome relationships. Feeling valued is essential in the healing process. When entering counseling, a person is looking for a change in their life. It is essential as a therapist, to hear the needs and desires expressed. Establishing trust and authenticity is foundational to beginning a healing journey. A big part of my role is to provide truth with honesty and compassion. Truth shared in a safe space acts as a powerful tool to promoting insight.

We all long to be seen, heard, understood, acknowledged and loved. Healing occurs when we feel safe in our relationships and are able to connect to ourselves and with each other. We can then allow ourselves to be known and express what is true for us. I utilize a somatic, attachment-based, psychodynamic approach that gently explores old wounds and releases suppressed emotions which influence what you believe about yourself, determine the roles you play in life, and impact how you show up in the world. This approach reaches the root cause of your troubles.

My approach is psychodynamic and I use inner healing techniques, such as prayer and meditation.
I help clients uncover obstacles that are preventing them from living the full and authentic life that they desire. Oftentimes, unresolved anger causes depression and unresolved fear causes anxiety. Let's get to the root and process those feelings so you can move forward in freedom. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and non-judgmental environment to process past trauma and hurts. You will go at your own pace and learn techniques to help manage feelings of anxiety as you work through past hurts.

I pull from various approaches influenced by psychodynamic and relational theories, CBT, trauma-informed care, and mindfulness.
I know finding the right therapist can be a daunting and overwhelming process. There are so many options out there, and it can be difficult knowing which therapist is best for you. Therapy should not be an intimating place. This should be a space where you feel comfortable and safe enough to be your truest, most authentic self. You do not have to go through this journey alone. I understand how excruciating and frustrating it can be to repeat the same painful patterns and feel like nothing will get better. Together, we will explore ways to start moving past the pain and towards a happier and healthier life.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
