My approach to therapy is based on the deeply held value that every person is different. As a result, we should not use a cookie-cutter approach in our work with clients. Rather we should help people unlock the unique strengths and potential the coincide with the problems life presents to us. I strongly believe that, for most people, therapy should be a short-term process that builds on an open, creative, and collaborative relationship between the psychologist and the client. This short-term approach should also provide clients with the skills needed to continue to address life's challenges as well as to enjoy the joys of life, love, work, and relationships after treatment ends.

My approach is mainly psychodynamic and psychoanalytic, which addresses mental and emotional blocks, which we will identify in the first three sessions. I sometimes use other techniques: interpersonal, which involves a focus on relationships and uses the relationship with the therapist to gain insight. I also appreciate cognitive therapy, with it's emphasis on measuring and identifying progress, which can be clarifying and encouraging in short or long term therapy. I provide a gentle supportive approach that is tailored to your personality and needs. It is often most difficult to focus on the things that we don't like about ourselves - although if we can do that, change is possible.

A psychologist is trained and specializes in human feeling, human communication, what goes wrong with these, and how we can fix what goes wrong. Only someone with a Ph.D or Psy.D in psychology (typically 5 years of graduate school) followed by a year or two of post-doctoral supervised experience and then a (passed!) licensing exam can identify themselves as a psychologist. Of the various kinds of counselors, psychologists typically have the most and broadest training in the many facets of human emotional/psychological issues, especially in psychotherapy. If you don't have specific reasons to see a particular counselor of another type, it would probably be wise to start with a psychologist to be sure you're considering all possibilities as you assess what's going on.

I am, technically, not a "Psychologist" by license. I am, however a "psychologist" by practice. I elected to become licensed in two other areas instead: Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor. Take a look at my profile on my website where all of my accomplishments are listed. You can then decide if I may be of help to you.
