Hello, I am a psychotherapist who works with individuals and couples in overcoming life's many challenges. I have successfully helped hundreds of people find solutions to their problems and feel noticeably better about their lives. The tools and insight you acquire will be helpful whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, relationship conflicts or distress in all its many forms.
The relationship which I build with my clients is genuine, and this is very important in the therapeutic process. Being listened to in an authentic matter opens many new possibilities for understanding yourself. Therapy is an important experience and I am protective of its personal nature. I relate to each person as a unique individual, with their own strengths and challenges. I work with each person in a way best suited to them.
I have both graduate and post-graduate training. My extensive experience includes literally thousands of hours working with clients in various settings. I have worked as a therapist in a psychiatric unit with patients who required hospitalization. My experience also includes working in an outpatient mental health clinic with patients who are experiencing a wide range of diagnosis from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, anger, trauma, difficult life transitions and emerging adulthood issues. I have also treated the elderly, including Holocaust survivorsa.
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
To help with depression, anxiety, anger and fear we explore your past and see the ways in which it has influenced your present difficulty. In the process we look for repeated, hurtful patterns and find ways of replacing them in new, constructive, life giving ways.
- Person Center Therapy
PCT is a humanistic model. It a form of psychotherapy in which the therapist focuses upon creating a comfortable, non-judgmental environment. The relationship with the client is non directive, and expresses genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard. The healing nature of this relationship allows patients to access their own inner resources, and to discover their strengths.
Focused in the here and now, cognitive therapy examines how one thinks, and the beliefs one has, about life and different circumstances. The idea is that how we think affects the way we feel. Developing new perceptions can result in healing of problems and ultimately feelings of well-being.
- Couples Therapy
I provide a safe environment for couples to work together and develop constructive ways to communicate. They learn how to listen actively, express themselves honestly, and learn how to get their needs met mutually. In the process couples develop trust in themselves and one another.
