My Approach to Helping
Are you stuck in old emotions or circumstances, longing for change? Are you constrained by depression? anxiety? fraught relationships? —Are you searching for a partner or companion who feels like home? ...or hoping to find that sense of home within yourself? Are you tearful or angry? —can't get out of bed? Do you long for an excitement you once had? Worried about your child? Is he shy or anxious? â€”does she struggle with learning? Have school mornings become a battle zone? —For over 20 years, I have had the pleasure of engaging adults, children and parents in compassionate, supportive therapy that eases these stresses in their lives.
More Info About My Practice
The tools I use are broadly psycho-dynamic, emphasizing the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. Ultimately, though, I use what works. Whatever you walk in the door with--however we greet each other--that's where we'll begin. In work with children I use play and always work closely with parents. My office is across from the YMCA's "Armory" in P.S.
Time and again, people enter my office in painful distress. Always, what I see—at the heart of them—is a spark, of hope or potential. My job is to listen, with enormous care, to the story that unfolds and preserve a space for that spark to grow. I am relaxed but serious, ready to help you ease your life into a more gratifying configuration.
