Clinical Practice

Individual and couples therapy

I offer in-depth psychodynamic talk therapy for individuals and couples, in-person in Asheville NC, or via secure telehealth video.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples who wish to explore and navigate life transitions, relational struggles and desires, and shift long-embedded patterns that may be hurting rather than helping. In sessions, we attune to conscious and unconscious patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that comprise the themes of our lives and relations. Such patterns may have had excellent reasons for arising, but may no longer be serving. I work with people to shift these patterns so that individuals and couples may experience less misery and more thriving and connection. I utilize a variety of techniques and theories in my work; my primary orientation is psychodynamic/existential and I’ve been in the clinical psychology field for over two decades. Working together, we discover ways to release from constricting patterns that bind and cause pain, and to open more opportunities for growth and flourishing.

I also offer Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, a form of in-depth therapy that combines psychotherapy and ketamine infusions.

I am not an in-network insurance provider for any insurance company, however, I can provide you with the paperwork for you to submit to your insurance.
