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.

I see psychotherapy as a process of discovery. Through this process, you will have the opportunity to learn about yourself, including the parts of you that may be hard to reach and difficult to know. Psychotherapeutic work can allow you to have greater compassion, both for yourself and for others; to grow, and to make new or different decisions in your life. Getting in touch with a deeper part of you can help you better understand the meaning behind your anxiety, sadness, shame, anger, or even numbness. 

I don’t believe that a diagnosis or set of symptoms can fully define a person. Each person isunique and has their own set of lived experiences involving their individual history and family of origin. These experiences are impacted by racism, classism, transphobia, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and so much more. Psychotherapy, at its best, is a place where you can share your story free of these negative experiences to understand the root of your struggle. Psychotherapy is also about inviting another person - the psychotherapist - into your journey. I respect the courage and vulnerability it takes to invite another into your life.

I practice psychodynamic therapy through an anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ affirming lens. This work can allow you to have greater self-knowledge; to grow, and to consider and perhaps to make different decisions in your life. My approach is to bring curiosity, empathy, and insight to your current situation and to go from there.

Can’t Decide Who's 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.
