My approach goes beyond just listening and nodding, or assigning homework. I believe therapy should be an open and engaging process.

Internalized voices from our pasts and oppressive societal messages can undermine our healthy sense of self-esteem. In therapy, we can work to identify these patterns, and help free you from them.
Using a psychodynamic approach, we can explore the roots of depressed mood, and identify factors that alleviate or worsen symptoms.
Dysfunctional dynamics from the past often reemerge in our romantic relationships. Psychodynamic therapy can help identify these dynamics, and improve communication and coping.
I have completed an intensive externship in EFT, and find EFT to be helpful in uncovering relational patterns that drive conflict. EFT techniques can help patients get in touch with the emotions that lie beneath arguments, and help diffuse them through mutual understanding and communication.
I have completed a two year advanced graduate fellowship in psychodynamic therapy from the Wright Institute in Los Angeles.
I have worked extensively with patients who have experienced relational and sexual trauma.
