I offer psychotherapy treatment in styles ranging from interpersonal and psychodynamic to CBT.
I enjoy helping my clients work through the most difficult of life's challenges. I work with individuals from all walks of life, struggling with a variety of conditions and life situations. I take a collaborative approach to treatment, emphasizing personal control in therapy. My interest in psychotherapy stems from my fascination with language and communication. I have spent years researching language from the perspectives of philosophy, linguistics, and psychology. I find this research informs my style of treatment such that I have an ear that is attuned to the subtleties of communication, which many of my patients find extremely supportive.

I specialize in treating difficulties with anxiety, OCD, depression, mood regulation, & trauma in adults. I also treat couples/relationship issues, & sexual concerns. My theoretical orientation emphasizes mindfulness-based & cognitive therapies & integrates principles from contemporary psychodynamic /existential therapies. In my work I am inspired by the human potential for psychological flexibility, behavioral change, & greater self-understanding. My research in women's sexuality has informed my comfort with sexual concerns, while my studies in Buddhist philosophy strengthen my implementation of mindfulness-based therapies.

Hello! My name is Andrew (he/him/his) and I feel honored to be a resource for you in your pursuit of greater emotional wellness. We may work well together if you are struggling with feeling "stuck" in some area of your life or if you find that you continue to repeat the same patterns over and over again despite your best efforts to make changes. My approach values the building of awareness of how we are struggling and the origins of these struggles while paying equal attention to the ways we can use our awareness in the present to promote change.

I draw upon humanistic, psychodynamic , somatic, transpersonal, and culturally-oriented theoretical models.
*Waitlist and Referral Inquiries Welcome* I offer integrative psychotherapy in Shelburne, Vermont, and via teletherapy. When fully engaged, psychotherapy can support an individual in living a purpose-driven life that includes dynamic relationships and a deeper awareness of their inner emotional world. The bond between the therapist and client can serve as a unique platform on which one can explore all facets of themselves with a freedom that is unavailable elsewhere in life. The therapeutic space facilitates increased awareness which can cultivate healing of unresolved wounds and unconscious patterns.

My practice is grounded in a person-centered approach that integrates aspects of psychodynamic and family systems therapies.
*** I am unable to take on new clients at this time *** I specialize in working with students and adults navigating transitions, challenges, and personal goals. I believe that in order to change negative patterns, anxiety or depression, we need to understand and explore our own strengths and skills. My own non-linear path has enriched and informed my work with individuals navigating social and emotional stressors. I strive to create an open and honest therapeutic space to support clients as they decipher big questions and develop coping strategies, self care practices and a deeper acceptance of self.

Some of the modalities that guide my practice are anti-oppressive psychodynamic frameworks, an attachment lens, movement and art techniques, as well as many other theories and practices.
I work with folks who experience complex trauma, grief, couples, neurodivergent folks, LGBTQIA+, and people who feel things really intensely. It can feel isolating to navigate trauma and other emotional experiences without someone to witness and be on the journey with you. Browsing psychology today profile pages, especially during a pandemic, can feel exhausting and limiting. I am a firm believer that having a positive relationship with a therapist is one of the most important parts of therapeutic work.

Psychotherapy is both an art and a science. I believe that my strength as a psychotherapist is that I am informed equally by my theoretical foundation as well as my creativity and intuition. The first part of my theoretical foundation is drawn from insight-oriented theories. I'm interested in how the interplay of your history and personality has contributed to your current concerns. The process of learning about and accepting who you are contributes to your healing. Through gentle and direct exploration and encouragement I will guide you toward self- awareness and compassionate self -acceptance.

You may find yourself sitting at a growth edge and wanting to take steps towards change in your life. Often in this growth process there are patterns that emerge that no longer fit who you are and who you are becoming. Traumatic events and life stressors can live in the body and become patterns of tension you carry around that lead you to feel stuck. The process of therapeutic self-inquiry can help you discover new ways of relating to yourself outside narratives that no longer serve your well-being and prevent you from moving forward in your life in a meaningful way.

I offer videoconference therapy over the HIPPA compliant "zoom" platform and in person sessions when COVID numbers are low. My initial focus is to create a confidential, safe environment for a person to talk about their concerns. I offer psychotherapy that provides a way to understand problems and patterns related to moods, thoughts, behaviors and relationships; to find ways to untangle them; and to develop new ways of seeing and responding. This work will support you in developing self-compassion, accessing your sense of agency, and cultivating effective coping strategies.

It's often difficult to reach out for help when you most need it, and it can be hard to speak with someone you've never met about personal issues. On the other hand, it can be easier to do with a person who is a trained, neutral professional. I can be objective and understanding in a way that well-meaning friends and family often cannot. My work with couples, individual adults including seniors, or the younger population, begins in a friendly, professional manner whereby we move towards knowing each other better. A rapport between us is essential in accomplishing our work.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Life happens, so it helps to have a person who will really listen, without judgement. When we lay down our burdens, we begin to feel lighter, heal places that were hurt, and find a way back to our true selves. Therapy can be about self-development and coming to truly know and understand ourselves. People develop skills for managing life, emotions and relationships, claiming their self-worth and sense of competence. I specialize in supporting adults, children and organizations with holistic, research based psychotherapy, utilizing Mindfulness, CBT, ACT, ARC, DBT, and Jungian components.

I believe that times of transition or crisis, though frequently painful and disorienting, offer us powerful opportunities for adaptation and healing. I believe we have a fundamental need for connection, for being truly heard and for feeling effective and valued. Whether you are 35 or 85 or somewhere in between, I offer you a place to safely explore your needs and challenges. My clients describe my style as honest, engaged, compassionate and respectful. From my work in urban and rural settings, within a variety of socio-economic communities, I have developed a profound belief in everyone's capacity for positive change.

I enjoy working with people who are curious about who they are and what feelings and ideas make them unique. At times we all become confused or discouraged in the pursuit of our personal goals or in the relationships with those close to us. It is at these moments we can use the help of someone trained to listen carefully and help us to untangle some of the misperceptions or distortions that may be getting in our way. It is a humbling and hopeful experience to embark on therapy to make change in ourselves.

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.
