While psychodynamic in nature, I utilize behavioral therapies, and mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) to help a person feel heard and continue to grow.
Life can be difficult--sometimes, unnecessarily hard. People cope in a variety of ways to deal with what life throws at them, but sometimes these strategies are unhealthy and act as a barrier to a meaningful life. I can help you better understand yourself and develop effective ways to improve your response to unpleasant feelings and relationship patterns.

When we work together you will be welcomed in a warm, respectful, relaxed, environment. One that is open, trusting, non-judgmental, and centered on your needs and desires.

Through in-depth psychodynamic therapy, we can begin to challenge these patterns in hopes of providing relief and creating a new way of being with yourself and others.
I believe that our life and cultural experiences, especially our earliest ones, are fundamental in shaping the way we view ourselves and others. It is essential to understand my patient's cultural identity (i.e., race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, class) and how it has shaped their development. Often negative life experiences can create problematic ways of coping and a skewed perception of who we are in the world. This can lead to a variety of issues related to anxiety, depression, shame, rejection, stress, relationship issues, identity development, grief/loss, and sexual intimacy.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pineapple Park-Ibis, West Palm Beach, 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.
