My Approach to Helping
Have you had long-standing struggles with anxiety and depression? Do you find it difficult to feel good about yourself? Have you been in traditional "talk" therapy or been on medications and continue to struggle in a significant way. I work in a way that goes beyond what is in our heads and goes to the heart of the matter. We can work at a deeper level to see what drives your anxiety, depression, and struggles with confidence and self-esteem, so that you can live and thrive more fully.
I am extensively trained in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and currently Co-Chair of the ISTDP Training Program at the Washington School of Psychiatry. ISTDP is a mind-body experiential therapy that seeks to help individuals where traditional talk therapy is not able to. ISTDP has been shown through research to be effective with a wide variety of conditions.
