Therapists Providing Psychodynamic Therapy in New Jersey

Psychodynamic therapy is based on Freud’s psychoanalytic theory that thoughts and behaviors are influenced by our unconscious mind and past experiences. Through collaborative conversation, clients deepen their awareness and understanding of the unconscious mind. Unlike traditional psychoanalysis, therapists often meet with clients once weekly over several months rather than several years.

At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way. Oftentimes, our usual ways of dealing with these struggles aren't helping or may even be preventing us from feeling better. I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.

It’s important to me that you feel comfortable in sharing your self with me. If you are feeling shame or embarrassment about your behavior or some aspects of your self, you will not be judged by me. You are doing the best you can under the circumstances.

Together, we can figure out a way forward that helps ease the feelings of anxiety and depression that propelled you to find a therapist. In time, you will find resolution in other areas of your life including a greater tolerance of your own feelings and an increase in self-compassion.

Do you feel every task, big or small, is impossible? Do you feel lonely and alone? Does anxiety or depression affect you in ways that feel overwhelming? These feelings can affect your relationships, your sleep, your job or school performance, or all of the above. This often leads to one feeling unmotivated and sad, or angry and explosive.

I want to help you if you are feeling this way. It is important to learn about yourself, what is causing these feelings, and to know that there are solutions and supports in place. It is then, that one can begin to heal, return to being productive and happy, and living a better life. I am here to help you in this journey.

In our world being increasingly on our phones, it is so important to find time to connect with another person in a warm, judgement free environment. I value the time patients take to care for themselves, including finding space to discuss themselves and their lives. Therapy is the step to feeling more content and creating change in our lives.

I believe that the therapist’s ability to listen to the patients, and to see their underlying issues is one of the most important aspects that contribute to the patients insight and growth in the therapeutic process.

I believe that patient’s symptoms can’t be seen and treated in isolation, and is always important to understand how and when the symptoms have emerged and developed in a persons’s life.

In my practice I offer a welcoming setting and provide a safe space for your problems or difficulties.

My favorite author once wrote, “It is the peculiar nature of the world to go on spinning no matter what sort of heartbreak is happening,” which inevitably means that there are some experiences and feelings that, no matter how hard we may try to avoid, we cannot escape. Pain. Loss. Struggle. Heartbreak. Failure. But what if you could learn to honor and express your pain without suffering through it or allowing it to derail and control you? What if you could learn to manage the stress of tomorrow by choosing to live mindfully today?

Holistic and integrative in my approach, I believe that there is no "one size fits all" in therapy. Therefore, I aim to truly get to know and understand my clients in meaningful and comprehensive ways in order to provide uniquely tailored therapy sessions. Passionate about fusing Western psychology with Eastern healing modalities, I utilize a variety of practices rooted in traditional psychotherapy, positive psychology, mindfulness, Buddhist philosophy, meditation and yoga. From my own experiences in therapy, I truly understand how scary and vulnerable the therapeutic process can be and how important it is to find the right fit. I truly believe that with the right guidance and support, you can learn to free your mind, and, in doing so, free your life. I look forward to scheduling a free 15 minute phone consultation to learn more about one another and to discuss how I may best support you! I'm ready when you are...

It's not you just you. As a therapist who works with young adults, I have noticed a pattern of perfectionism, fear of making mistakes, people-pleasing behavior, and self-criticism that is tormenting our generation. These tendencies are leading to exhaustion, anxiety, depression, self-sabotage, and burnout.

Our work together will help you develop new ways of thinking, living, and relating to others. You will feel more connected to the present, yourself, others, and the life you desire to live.

I offer a free 20-minute consultation with my potential clients to find out what is bringing you to therapy, what you're looking to gain from this experience, and make sure my training and skills lineup and I am able to be helpful. I also offer my clients the first session for $50 so you can get to know me a bit before committing to working together.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I would love to hear your stories — and how you're feeling today. Our session will begin with your story. We will listen together without criticism or judgment. Over time, as we continue, you'll gain a new perspective and awareness, accompanied by fresh ideas and behaviors, and many practical tools. As we understand and explore the aspects of your life, the therapy room will become a safe space to rehearse your real life. You'll find viable solutions for the day-to-day issues you face outside of our session room.

I am currently providing online therapy sessions during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
