I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing psychoanalytic psychotherapy for individuals and couples.
My intention throughout the process of treatment is to walk along side you in a collaborative process. Together we will work with the goal of understanding your deepest longings, needs and fears. As we work together to understand your unconscious material; we will find ways to increase your sense of well-being and connection. The therapy process may also allow you to experience yourself and others in new, life-affirming ways.
I have extensive experience in working with individuals and couples who struggle with a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety, PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. I approach each therapeutic relationship with openness to what we might learn about each unique individual and couple. Therefore there is no cookie-cutter treatment approach; each relationship is unique.
Frequency of Sessions
I typically see people once or more times per week. Greater frequency allows us to deepen the work and creates a sense of cohesion between sessions. We will negotiate the frequency of sessions.
Your appointment time is reserved for you alone. It cannot be filled in by anyone else. Because of this you are responsible to pay for your appointment whether you are present or not. As a result it is very important that you keep your appointment time. There is no charge for sessions missed because I am absent. Patients are given two missed sessions annually for vacation.
If you have an emergency or are too ill to keep your appointment please give me 24-hour notice. We will try to reschedule you for the same week. If we are unable to reschedule you, you will be charged for the missed session. I invite you to ask any questions you may have about this policy.
I am fully trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) therapy. EMDR is an empirically validated treatment for PTSD and other trauma and anxiety related disorders.
I am trained in Clinical Hypnosis and have used hypnotherapy to assist clients with anxiety, insomnia and other concerns. My training in hypnosis is ongoing.
I am trained as an Emotionally Focused (EFT) Couples Therapist. EFT is an empirically validated treatment approach based on attachment theory focused on assisting individuals, couples and families in developing satisfying relationships.
I graduated Summa cum Laude from Christian Theological Seminary in 2014 with a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am currently a PhD student at The Institute for Clinical Social Work specializing in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
