Paula Best

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

I work with adults, couples and older adolescents. As a relational psychotherapist, I draw upon a psychodynamic perspective and the concept of establishing a safe and secure environment to help you discover, feel and express your fears and desires. Feeling safe and secure is essential in growing as a person and in developing greater capacity to tolerate and manage difficult feelings. My style is relational in nature and my therapeutic approach is informed by psychodynamic and psychoanalytic thinking. My areas of focus include relational struggles, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, grief/loss and spiritual formation.
