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.

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.

My journey:

In the early 1990s, I obtained my law degree and practiced law and corporate consulting at a Big 4 firm for many years.

In my late 30s, I felt stuck. My relationship was falling apart and my career just did not feel like me. I felt unfulfilled both personally and professionally.

I did not know how to manage all of these challenges. I also didn’t want to keep burdening my friends and family and felt overwhelmed by opinions and advice. I wasn’t sure what to do next.

Through my own therapy, I learned how to navigate through a truly difficult time in my life. (Eventually, my significant other and I parted ways and I experienced first-hand the divorce process and all of its recovery phases.) I also learned to recognize what was holding me back and how I could move forward to a better, healthier and happier life.

Through this process, I recognized what my calling was: being a psychotherapist.

After a significant clinical and academic journey, I transitioned into my new profession and opened my private practice.

Looking back on my journey, I can see that all of those experiences added to my innate ability to deeply connect and empathize with my clients who face similar challenges. The tools I developed in my own process such as resilience, empowerment, and understanding patterns to make better and healthier choices translate into all life transition spaces.

These tools and qualities really made a positive difference for me, and they have helped the many others who have come to me for therapy.

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.

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.

Are you an adolescent or adult that feels every task, big or small, is impossible? 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.
