Business Info edit info

I see three aspects to the work I do with clients:

1) Finding practical solutions to immediate crisis and problems;

2) Understanding and changing self-destructive patterns of living;

3) Learning new ways to think, feel, and behave, that will bring more satisfaction, productivity, and intimacy in life.

I work with individual adults, with couples, and with teenagers and their families.

My work with adult individuals comprises about 60% of my practice. Client problems may include: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, long-standing emotional distress, and substance abuse issues.

My primary therapy approach is based on psychodynamic psychotherapy, which involves understanding and changing personal problems in the light of past experiences and the inner expectations we bring to our current relationships. I have also had training in a variety of other methods and techniques, including family systems therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), problem-solving and cognitive-behavioral techniques, Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy, and humanistic/spiritual approaches. I do both brief therapy and long-term work. When I work with someone, we decide together what methods will be most useful for the individual
