It can be deeply challenging to struggle with sadness, anxiety, self-doubt, or dissatisfaction. We might find ourselves feeling trapped in patterns or attachment dynamics that aren’t serving us, even though they may have supported us through difficult situations in the past. With a relational psychodynamic approach, I work with individuals (adults and adolescents) and couples through these feelings and patterns, as well as relationship issues, life transitions, questions of identity and purpose, complex family dynamics, low self-esteem, or an overall feeling of being stuck in life, toward greater clarity and fulfillment.
I’ll work with you to create a space where you feel safe and free to express what’s troubling you and explore what’s important to you. I’ll help you make better sense of what you’ve been struggling with and why, and support you in tuning into and working toward what well-being might look and feel like for you.
Talking together in this way can deepen your understanding of yourself and your experiences and build resilience, which both support authentic, lasting change. As this process unfolds, it can foster a more integrated sense of self, greater connection in relationships, and a stronger sense of agency in life.
