Therapy Approach

I provide psychoanalytic therapy with a psychodynamic focus. By utilizing this approach, I listen for any repressed emotions, unconscious thoughts, and deep roots of pain and struggle and help you release those in order to find and develop your strengths.

With me, you will find a non-judgmental space where you can discuss anything freely. I also integrate Family Systems Theory to better understand your family-of-origin relationships, which provides a great amount of information on how you operate in everyday life. In addition, I provide comprehensive psychological assessments for academic, attention, or emotional challenges.
