I utilize CBT, psychodynamic therapy, and motivational interviewing to assist individuals to face their challenges and improve their overall wellness.
You have made the first step to improve your mental health and wellness, seeking the assistance of a qualified therapist. Whether dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship problems or life transitions, therapy can play a key part in the development of goals, identification of roadblocks to achieving those goals and building the tools to bring about change. I bring an integrative approach to help people resolve emotional conflicts, develop self-awareness/acceptance and increase coping skills, constructive behaviors, and thought patterns.

More specifically, I tend to favor a psychodynamic approach, in addition to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing.
Because no two clients are exactly the same, my treatment plans are tailored to each individual. I approach each client as I would a puzzle, where the end goal is to assemble all of the relevant pieces together for a consolidated picture. While I work with my clients to gain insight on what their past has brought to their present, I also tailor my approach by evaluating what is happening in the here and now. Having worked for the Victim Witness Program at the Commonwealth Attorney of Virginia’s office, I have experience in working with trauma/PTSD, as well as stress, family conflict, anxiety, depression, and self esteem.

My orientation to psychotherapy is integrative; I recognize the value of psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral and family approaches. I have come to believe that no one approach is necessarily the best. Each individual is unique, so the therapeutic approach that is used should reflect the needs of the client. By tailoring therapy to fit the needs of each individual, an atmosphere is created in which the client feels secure to explore his or her feelings. I have worked in many different treatment settings, and with diverse population of adults and adolescents. I have experience treating individuals, couples, and families.

I utilize a mix of mindfulness-based CBT, psychodynamic , family systems, and EMDR to help adolescents, adults, and couples with such issues as anxiety, depression, family of origin issues, relationship and marital issues, and trauma.
I believe that as human beings, our being matters more than our doing. I help people foster peace with themselves apart from anything they could ever accomplish or do. I also believe that we are all made to be in relationship with one another. Relationships are where we learn love, comfort, encouragement, joy, and hope. Alternately, they are also where we experience pain, abuse, abandonment, and rejection. It is my desire that my clients are able to reflect on the pain of their past with peace and hope and are able to have healthy and joy-filled relationships with others.

If your relationship experiences haven't been optimal training ground for feeling whole, loveable, and secure in the world, I can help you understand your experiences, heal unresolved pain, and explore new ways to relate to yourself and others. In the safe container of therapy, you can explore your emotions and relationship cycles, and find new ways to connect. We all have the ability to grow beyond old patterns and emotional pain when given a nurturing space. I help couples learn how each partner responds to relationship distress and find safer ways to communicate needs, respond to conflict, and deepen emotional intimacy.

I believe we are wired to seek connection and security. Emotion is the language of connection so I work with individuals and couples to understand how their emotional world shapes their life. You may have learned to withdraw/numb feelings, deny or feel shame about them, or that your emotions are “too much”. Your feelings are valid, important, and resourceful, and designed to shine a light on what you are needing. Whether I am working with individuals or couples, I can support you to organize your emotions, understand their origins and functions, and utilize them to create secure, emotionally intimate, and responsive relationships.

Ideally, our early experiences of connection were secure, safe, accessible, and responsive and we developed an internal sense of ourselves as loveable, worthy, and deserving of getting our needs met. But what happens when this has not been our experience? Many of us have had to find ways to adapt and survive moments of disconnect, invalidation, or criticism. This can often mean we hold beliefs about ourselves that are limiting, worry that we have to hide or minimize parts of who we are, deny certain emotions, hustle for our worth, and/or build up layers of protection. I can support you to heal, connect and create lasting change.

I believe in helping those who come to my office with compassion and understanding in an atmosphere conducive towards healing, where there is no room for judgment or criticism. In psychotherapy, my clients find an opportunity to go within, tap into issues that are unresolved and explore endless possibilities to make necessary changes that add meaning to their lives. It is a journey of self-discovery for clients who are willing to take the necessary steps towards self-awareness, mood-regulation and self-actualization.

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.
