Dr. Yusim believes every person is unique and therefore needs an individually-tailored therapy approach. The philosophy of Dr. Yusim's practice is to help individuals achieve their highest level of psychological, emotional & mental well-being. She does this by enabling patients to cultivate their inherent strengths and gain insight into their difficulties. Her primary approach is psychodynamic, existential and action-oriented. Psychodynamically, she works with her patients to understand how patterns of thinking and feeling from early childhood affect their current lives. Existentially, she helps her patients to find personal meaning in their lives and cultivate their uniqueness. An empathic & action-oriented approach enables her patients to make real and lasting changes in their personal and professional lives. If desired by the patient, Dr. Yusim can prescribe psychiatric medication when medically indicated.
