We Are Like a Journey Through the Bridge to
Self - knowledge
is always a path into the unknown..
That will lead you through this hard path.
But this is an experience that you have to go
through to become a better version of yourself.

Psychotherapy for me is a space where one can go when major life transitions, difficulties in relationships, creative blocks, issues of identity and life events feel insurmountable. This is also a space to explore the seeds of who we are as people, why we respond to the world in the ways that we do, and how our life thus far has led us to this current moment. In other words, life can be confusing, panic-inducing, heartbreaking, heavy and too much sometimes––therapy can support us in building the tools and infrastructure that we need to get closer to ourselves and
to better negotiate these difficulties.

My work has been in Community Mental Health working with individuals, couples, and families on issues of depression and anxiety, life transitions, LGBTQIA+ issues, creative block, complex trauma and PTSD and interpersonal relationships. I work primarily in psychodynamic modalities with an anti-oppressive and anti-racist lens.

Can’t Decide Who is More Suitable?

Deciding on therapy is a difficult decision. But let us make it easy for you and take the survey to find you the 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.
