My Approach to Helping
As an individual psychotherapist I work one-on-one with patients and treat anxiety, mood, adjustment, stress and somatic symptom disorders; but I also deal with identity and self-esteem, personal and professional problems and last but not least with personal growth and self-knowledge (Jung's Path of Individuation). My therapeutic approach is primarily psychoanalytical but, according to the needs of the person, I also draw on other psychological approaches and intervention techniques such as mindfulness. I might also ask the patient to tackle certain tasks designed to help develop, cultivate and reinforce more effective coping skills, even assigning homework. And too, I encourage the reading of selected materials on topics treated in therapy.
