My Practice


My 23 years of experience practicing, teaching and supervising in the field have helped me to develop a flexible way of working with clients which takes into account individual differences, needs and goals. I believe that therapy is ideally a collaboration between therapist and client in which we work together to help you to bring out the aspects of your personality which have not been integrated yet. I help you to understand what you can do in the sessions to make the best use of your experience so that you take an active role in the work which stays with you long after our sessions have ended.


 
I am the author of I'm Working On It In Therapy: How To Get The Most Out Of Psychotherapy (Skyhorse, 2015). In my book I describe ten tools that you can use to accomplish the change and growth that you are looking for in therapy.

 

I believe in looking at our personal struggles through a prospective lens, that is, rather than seeing problems as merely neurotic, I tend to see them as unconscious efforts to work through old issues and move toward a more whole and effective personality.

 

One goal of my work is to help you develop a better relationship to your feelings and  unconscious, leaving you more prepared to deal with the challenges you'll face even after you leave therapy. My approach to treatment is designed to help you become aware of the sources of your challenges and come to live in a more fulfilling way as a result of that understanding.

 

My Beliefs in Therapy


The content of therapy is different for everyone who comes. But I believe that for most people there are specific aspects of the process that make it effective:

 

*Meeting regularly with a trained professional with whom it feels safe to look at what is and what isn’t working for you. Most of us tend toward avoidance, and the structure of therapy helps us to avoid avoidance.

 

*Collaborating with someone who is both objective and empathic.

 

*Using sessions to experience a full range of thought and feeling without critical judgment, in order to become more authentic.

 

*Becoming aware of old, reactive and over-protective ways of living that developed into habits, and eventually became unconscious.

 

*Learning to live in the present rather than the past.

 

*Observing how you relate, avoid, think and feel in the moment of the therapy session itself.

 

*Developing new and more flexible ways of relating to people and the world.

 

*Developing a greater capacity to relate to feelings without being overwhelmed by them.

 

*Building an alliance with inner resources.

 

*Exploring dreams to see how the unconscious is trying to compensate the conscious position.

 

*Developing an attitude toward life based on making meaning out of the difficulties we encounter.


 

Fees and Insurance


 

I do not accept insurance. However, if you have out-of-network benefits, you may be eligible for reimbursement after meeting a deductible. If you do not have out-of-network benefits, and are not able to pay my full fee (currently $200 per 50 minute session) we could discuss moderating my fee at a consultation. If we were not able to arrive at a fee that was workable for both of us, I would not charge you for the session,  and I would do what I could to help you find another therapist. Please see my website for more details.
