NOT accepting new clients at this time! Mental health is an ongoing process, and sometimes it can feel crushing. Maybe you've been feeling unwell for a while, maybe it's a brand new feeling for you, or maybe it comes and goes over time. Wherever you are in your process, you don't have to figure it out alone. I opened Hold Fast Counseling Services, LLC to collaborate with clients to build awareness and insights, fortify internal and relational connections, develop meaning in the intersections of our experiences and identities, support development and expression of gratitude and joy, and flourish.

My theoretical orientation leans towards interpersonal process and psychodynamic , with a focus on how individuals often get stuck in difficult patterns in relation to self and others.
A few years ago, I moved from upstate New York to Appleton, Wisconsin. I'm loving life in the Midwest! I am happy to be licensed in both Wisconsin and New York. At this time, I am ONLY seeing clients virtually using a HIPAA-compliant app called Spruce for video-based telehealth sessions. As of January 2023, I’ve recently had a few client spaces open up. These openings are mostly during the work week hours, but I’d love to see if we’re a fit. I’m not accepting insurance directly, but many of my clients are able to receive reimbursement by submitting my superbill to their insurance.

My abilities are well suited to people with a history of trauma and who are intuitive and creative. Whether you're looking for short term therapy or a deeper process, my skill level applies to both. Each person is unique and I anticipate and enjoy building a relationship that assumes collaboration. I then work with them toward activating their own healing potential, no matter the age. I work well with individuals who have had treatment failures in the past.

Getting help can be one of the hardest steps to take. Shame, guilt, feeling trapped in life; it can be so overwhelming. Not to mention the anxiety of meeting a therapist for the first time. I am here to listen, to serve as a guide, and to help if you want me to help. The cliché is the axiom, “You’re stronger than you think;” the truth is you absolutely are, and you matter. I am here to help you along the way.

I enjoy helping people identify what they desire from their life and relationships. It can be difficult to understand what we actually want which often leads to stress and other anxious/ depressive symptoms. When stress goes on too long, it's easy to lose motivation and fall into unhelpful thinking/lifestyle habits and patterns that don't match your deeper values. Through talking together, I feel confident we will come to better understand and manage the stress and challenges you are experiencing, as well as identify what might be preventing you from moving closer toward what you hope for.

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.
