When I work with you, I will begin by doing a careful assessment of your concerns and history and what has led you to seek therapy. Then we will jointly identify your goals, and agree on where to start. I realize that taking the time and the expense to participate in therapy is significant, so I tend to do very focused work, holding the attitude that every session can be powerful. I use both insight-oriented and cognitive behavioral techniques, and adapt my style to yours. I work equally well with women and men.
