I provide individual psychotherapy for adults ages 18 and older. I tend to incorporate a variety of different approaches in my work with clients, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and relational theories. However, I also understand that each of my clients is unique, and I will work closely with you in the initial sessions to establish a plan for treatment that you feel comfortable with and that meets your needs. During that time we will also discuss other aspects of therapy, such as the frequency of our meetings (e.g., once per week, twice per month, etc.) and the duration of treatment. I know that we are all facing a number of demands on our time and finances, so I believe it is important for us to structure your therapy in a way that is both effective and practical.
Here are some of the areas that I specialize in:
- Depression and Anxiety
- Relationship Issues
- Managing and Expressing Difficult Emotions
- Anger Management
- Self Esteem/Self-Confidence
- Identity Development
- School, Work, and Career issues
- Motivation and Achievement
- Stress Management
- Men's Issues
- Grief and Loss
As a therapist, I view our counseling relationship as a partnership and I strive to create a relaxed environment where you feel respected, validated, and understood. My training and experience as a psychologist has led me to appreciate the complexity and uniqueness of each individual, and I firmly believe that there is no “one-size fits-all” approach to psychotherapy. Each of us have been shaped by our own distinct experiences and circumstances, all of which impact the way we view ourselves, others, and the world. Rather than just focusing on current symptoms or difficulties, I see my role as assisting clients in better understanding their own personal “story” in a way that offers a new perspective on the past and greater sense of clarity for the future.
