Hi, do you often find yourself struggling to manage anxiety, depression, fear and loneliness? Seeking assistance for this is often challenging in itself and questions like this may arise. “How can I talk about this with a stranger?, “How can I trust to tell someone things that I am embarrassed or ashamed of?”. When life experiences have not been very pleasant, this cab lead to barriers to cope with everyday life experiences effectively.


I am a licensed clinical social worker trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and utilize Freudian principles of drive, object relations theories, ego and self psychology, to uncover unconscious, sometimes painful memories that can inhibit us from moving forward past incidents of hurt and pain. In the past ten years, I focused on providing trauma focused treatment and have several certifications in trauma based therapies to help alleviate distress.



My experiences have led me to believe we all seek a corrective experience to move beyond distressing or disturbing periods of our lives. If the content I have written applies to you I encourage you to reach out and begin the healing process.
