My Approach to Helping

Emotional pain manifests in myriad ways, including anxiety, relationship challenges, depression, difficulty living up to your potential, self-doubt, and self-destructive choices. You don't have to live with this pain. Medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two can help.

To assess your situation, I begin with a comprehensive consultation analyzing your symptoms and history. This nurtures understanding of the biological and psychological components of your condition. Lasting relief from emotional pain often can only come when you face the deeper sources of that pain. Medication may also help alleviate your pain.

The blend of therapy with medication requires an expert in both psychoanalysis and psychiatry. Your goals for treatment and personal values play a key role in selecting the best treatment plan.

I embrace the value of flexible therapy that occurs according to an intensity, frequency, and duration that works for your needs. I collaborate with my clients, adopting the most effective treatment -
whether that's medication, therapy, or a combination of both- to help you live a more satisfying life.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The purpose of psychotherapy is to lessen suffering while helping someone achieve their full potential in all areas of their life.
