I work with individuals who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, trauma, and life and career transitions. My treatment emphasizes an individual's capacity for growth, development, and adaptation. I believe that the therapeutic space is a safe place where you can feel, express, and work through the pain from unresolved
issues from the past, which will promote not only resilience, but also bring forth fulfillment and happiness. The work I offer will help you identify the root of your concerns, gain clarity in your thinking, achieve better emotional regulation, and experience self-empowerment.

I understand that seeking therapy can be overwhelming because it feels vulnerable and scary to exploring your inner world. However, you will find that with time and the effort you put in, you will begin to feel so much better because the therapeutic experience will bring clarity to your awareness. And with that, you will begin to make better decisions
towards your overall health and well-being.

Stepping into therapy can feel vulnerable and scary. You are not alone and you do not have to navigate through your pain all on your own.

I work with individuals who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, traumas, and life and career transitions. My treatment focus is primarily talk therapy that emphasizes an individual's capacity to grow and develop over their life. I have found that a safe place where one can feel, express, and work on painful issues promotes resilience and wellbeing. I approach my work with kindness, compassion and a strong desire to understand your situation.

Although my approach is primarily psychodynamic, I also utilize theories and intervention from other therapeutic modalities such as cognitive behavioral, attachment, and mindfulness-based therapy.

Can’t Decide Who is More Suitable?

Choosing a therapist can be hard.
Let us make it easy—take the survey to find your perfect therapist.

How long is a session? Are you conducting in person sessions?

The length of psychotherapy session is either 45 minutes or 50 minutes. Please discuss this with your therapist, but both arrangements are acceptable.

We offer both—in-person, and virtual treatment. Please discuss your preference with your therapist.

How often should I see my therapist?

The frequency of work is determined between you and your therapist. However, we do believe a higher frequency has an important effect on the outcome of the treatment. Most of our therapists work with their patients at more than once-a-week frequency in psychotherapy. However, if you are in psychoanalytic treatment, the frequency is at least 4 times (sometimes we offer 3 times) a week.

How long does the therapy last?

Believe it or not, this is by far the most common question we are asked. There is a famous quote from Freud, “Our answer is like the answer given by the Philosopher to the Wayfarer in Aesop's fable. When the Wayfarer asked how long a journey lay ahead, the Philosopher merely answered ‘Walk!’” The duration of treatment depends on the individual circumstances. Therefore, he says, “[T]he question as to the probable duration of a treatment is almost unanswerable.” At TheraBridge we hold true to Freud’s word, “Walk!” We help our patients walk the path and over the bridge towards a future where new memories and new experiences bring happiness and joy.

Is my information confidential?

Yes, your information is kept confidential. In case we need to coordinate care with other medical professionals including your psychiatrist, we will obtain your consent, though the exchange of patient information amongst medical providers is considered HIPAA compliant.

What kind of therapy do you provide?

At TheraBridge, all our clinicians are trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
