Some people need short-term therapy, while others are more interested in longer-term supportive psychotherapy. If you have recently experienced a loss or a crisis, you may feel you need several weeks of treatment to adjust.
Other life problems, such as those relating to anxiety, depression, anger, or relationship conflicts, will likely require more time in therapy. To be more helpful to you, I need time to learn as much as I can about you so that we can explore your relational patterns, including strengths and weaknesses.
I have experience and am fluent in many models of individual therapy, including psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy. Most importantly, my treatment is person-centered. In simple terms, that means we will consider your needs and preferences when constructing a treatment plan to address your moods, thoughts, and behaviors.
My goal is to help you gain insight, to improve your relationships, and to feel better. My approach involves giving you the space to discover solutions that make sense, while challenging you to try new ways of thinking, behaving and relating to others.
I give ongoing supportive feedback in an honest and constructive way, and I believe this personalized feedback can truly help you make meaningful changes so as to achieve more satisfaction in your life.
It's important to me that you feel your therapy is useful, so I will do my best to work with you to establish a clear direction that focuses on your progress as we go along. Whatever problems you're facing, I am committed to supporting you.
Before beginning psychotherapy, we will have a free phone consultation, in which I will learn more about your needs and interests. From the outset, I want to be sure we are a good fit. You should feel able to communicate with me openly and honestly.
Once we decide to begin therapy, we will agree upon a regular weekly appointment time that works for you. I currently have availability on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
I have extensive clinical experience in treating a broad range of issues and problems, such as:
• Major Depression
• Problems with Anxiety
• Women's Issues (e.g., infertility)
• Borderline Personality Disorder
• Disordered Eating
• Relationship Problems
• Grief & Loss
• Work-Related Stress:
Most of us spend more time at work than at home, therefore the workplace should be an environment where we feel safe and comfortable. However, at work, we are often confronted by different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews, and things don’t always go smoothly. Examples of common workplace issues include:
- Poor job fit
- Mental anguish
- Sexual or verbal harassment
- Low motivation and job dissatisfaction
Therapy for work and career issues can help a person develop a better understanding of their career goals as well as approach alternative ways to handle tension. Therapy is a neutral setting where patients can discuss their fears, worries, and stressors, and learn skills to manage work-related stress.
