My Approach to Helping
Thank you for viewing my profile. I provide supportive therapy, therapy with a more exploratory focus, psychoanalysis, parenting support, and both school and neuropsychological assessment (Learning disability, ADHD, school, brain injury, social-emotional, etc). In therapy, I focus on helping people with a wide range of longstanding and more recent problems (e.g., anxiety, depression, relationships, body image, identity, job stress, marital stress, self-esteem, attachments). I also have an interest in helping endurance athletes cope with stress related to training, jo, relationships, etc. My qualifications include board certification in clinical psychology (ABPP), adult psychoanalysis (FABP), school neuropsychology (ABSNP), and assessment psychology (ABAP). I have completed postgraduate programs in school psychology, neuropsychology, and adult psychoanalysis.
If you contact me, I'll get back to you quickly to arrange an initial consultation and talk about your needs.
More Info About My Practice
I have a private, independent psychology practice, and have been licensed as a psychologist for over 25 years. During this time I have seen many clients with different types of problems, and have a good deal of experience as a therapist and assessor. My office space is private, quiet, and easily accessible with private parking. My hours are flexible, including weekend mornings. I have a sliding scale for therapy, a very reasonable hourly rate for assessment, and provide detailed billing information that can be submitted to your insurance. I have published articles in journals, and presented papers and workshops in areas related directly to my practice. I am a university professor and was also director of counseling and testing services for 11 years.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can help by providing you with a supportive, professional, and ethical relationship where you feel understood. Psychotherapy offers you the personal space that is often needed, but hard to come by, to talk things out, develop new perspectives, solve problems that affect your life, and come to terms with issues that have been troubling, private, and led to feelings of self-doubt, shame, anger, and so on.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist, I invite you to collaborate with me in developing a way to feel better. I do this in a manner that is ethical, respectful, open-minded, and attentive to what you have to say.
