My training is in modern evidence-based therapies and traditional approaches such as Psychodynamic therapy, providing me with a wide range of tools to help you.
As your therapist, I will explore your concerns and assist you in uncovering deeper issues that might be hindering or influencing your relationships and your worldview. “Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.” -- Dr. Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor, existentialist, and founder of Logotherapy (concept based on the premise that the primary motivational force of an individual is to find a meaning in life).

I work primarily with adults in individual weekly therapy and with couples. In individual therapy I work in a relational psychodynamic modality that explores the patterns of relationships in your life and the root issues behind your symptoms. In my work with couples I see the couple as the client with no mental health diagnosis given to any one person in the partnership. My aim in this work is to help couples grow in their partnership while simultaneously reducing the conflict and misunderstandings they may be experiencing in their relationship.

Multicultural, feminist, and sex-positive counseling with a person-centered and psychodynamic approach.
Having a hard time? It's been a difficult few years, and finding joy and fulfillment in our daily lives can seem equally hard. Hard, but not impossible. Therapy can help you build the skills to navigate life’s challenges with gratitude and authenticity. Is it a magic wand? Of course not, it takes work and a commitment to yourself. But a dedicated time to focus on addressing your fears, learning coping skills, and building your self-esteem and relationship skills, can be life-changing and empowering. I see clients do it all the time, and I'd be honored to help you get there.

Overall, I favor a psychodynamic approach because I find it to be a holistic way to engage an individual's identity resources, underlying conflicts, and relevant patterns.
I believe every patient has the right to be treated gently and respectfully, even bolstered on their mental health journey. Each session is dynamic and unique, allowing me to be fully present to listen and engage. While I am always equipped to offer tools that can help alleviate acute symptoms of anxiety or depression, I find that the real magic happens as the therapeutic alliance grows over time. As I get to know you and the context of your life struggles, it becomes increasingly powerful to explore unconscious wishes and conflicts. It's quite common for my patients to experience increased insight, acceptance, and flexibility.

My training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy and in family therapy.
Before therapy, most people have identified emotions and behaviors that they have tried to change. When these efforts are not successful, there are often blind spots or important ties to unresolved, and sometime unrecognized, issues from the past. I work collaboratively to define the problem, identify patterns and their sources, and then to uncover new options. Since my former practice was in Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA, I have worked extensively with students and young adults. Often I use family theory in working with an individuals to increase awareness of options within relationships and with his/her family. .

As a Psychodynamic Relational practitioner, I am deeply devoted to honoring the depth of your experiences by actively listening to you and customizing a treatment approach that works for you.
To quote Søren Kierkegaard, "The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Painful experiences can leave us feeling broken, small, disoriented, without words, stagnant and isolated. It can be hard to ask for help, but you might be relieved to know that psychotherapy is not about pinpointing or exploiting what's wrong with you. It is about becoming who you really are. We all need safe spaces to breathe, process emotion, move, find stillness, to feel seen, understood and to form language around what has happened to us; to find connection and to integrate our emotional, cognitive and physical experiences.

I use an integrative relational style incorporating psychodynamic and Eastern psychological perspectives in honoring a client's experience and recognizing their strengths as well as their potential for growth.
During our lives, we encounter experiences that can move us away from a direct connection to ourselves. Influences from family, friends, peers, jobs, and the greater culture can affect how we view and express ourselves. We can become conditioned to thinking, feeling and behaving in a way that is incompatible with who we really are and what we want in our lives. This compromises our ability to value our unique identity and to express and apply ourselves, and our strengths. I will help you to identify, understand and remove barriers that are keeping you from realizing your fullest potential.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist working with adults in individual therapy through a relational and psychodynamic approach. These modalities hold that the past informs the present, often setting the template for unconscious patterns of thought, behavior, and relating to others that impact our current relationships, as well as our ability to be productive and fulfilled. Developing deeper understanding about the nature of our problems within the context of an empathic, collaborative therapeutic relationship can lead to increased intellectual and emotional flexibility, healthier relationships, and richer, more satisfying lives.

The stress of everyday life can often feel overwhelming to us, creating confusion and fear. I believe that our early relationships and past experiences offer the key that can unlock the mysteries of why we often feel at odds with the world around us. I also believe the body and brain hold onto traumatic events and affect our current functioning. I approach therapy from a psychodynamic perspective, creating a safe holding environment to explore those relationships and influences. I would be honored to help you achieve your goals and assist you in creating increased contentment in your life.

I offer skillful therapy with warmth, gentleness, humor, and an interactive, down to earth style. My therapeutic approach blends more traditional psychodynamic work with body-oriented psychotherapy, mindfulness practices, and the development of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. I work with adolescent and adult individuals, couples, and groups. This work is about igniting what works, what is strong and beautiful in us, as much as it is about resolving old hurt and compassionately holding the difficulties of life. Therapy can facilitate powerful shifts creating greater room for happiness, authenticity and a deeper sense of purpose and meaning.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic , Interpersonal Neurobiology & CBT.
My therapy practice is humanistic, client centered & mind/body/spirit oriented. This means, above all, I believe the answers are within you. I will never invalidate your experience, or feelings; I will never tell you to move on, get over, or let go of something that is weighing on you. I want to explore, uncover and help you process what is stuck and holding you back. When past injuries are treated with honor and loving kindness, instead of shame, blame, or are minimized, they have opportunity to heal. Your innate resilience has opportunity to kick in & you can achieve your goals. I strive to create a warm, safe & nurturing

My approach is primarily relational but borrows from psychodynamic , psychoanalytic and attachment therapies.
**CURRENTLY OFFERING TELETHERAPY SESSIONS in ARIZONA & WASHINGTON** Relationships can be challenging, particularly the ones that are most important to us. We want to feel known, connected and loved but often end up hurt and lonely, stuck in patterns which aren't working. Relational pain can show up as anxiety, fear, depression or grief among other things. I have extensive training in Psychodyamic Therapy. I have also learned directly from masters in the field of Couples Therapy: John & Julie Gottman and Phil Ringstrom to address these very issues.

Accepting new clients. Whether you're a teen growing into an independent young professional working a job in tech, life is never shy about bringing you stress. How do you cope with that stress? As men, we often isolate, hide our emotions, disappear into gaming, work, social media, substances, have destructive relationships, and often while putting others before ourselves. Holding in these stresses and trying to "fix it" alone can weigh on your mind, and it can come out in ways that make life harder on you. I can provide a space where we focus on you, and we ask where are things challenging for you, and how can things be better?

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Ballard, Seattle, 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.
