My Approach to Helping

All of us would like to be happy. Sometimes we loose our way or forget what does happiness mean for us. My therapeutic goal for each client is to use our time together to figure out what makes them happy and to pave the path toward it.

I am a clinician who is equally comfortable in treating adult and child clients. My background is in school and clinical psychology. I have over 15 years exprience of working with children and adults. My clinical approach is empathic, interpersonal, and geared toward problem solving.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being a therapist because people come to me for help and support, trusting that the process of therapy will lead them to be happier with their quality of life. This is a big responsibility for a therapist, who is charged to be a guide in this process of self-inquiry. This is a big honor as well and it thrills me that it is placed on me as a therapist.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Naturally, there is no universal precription for therapy. Each patient is unique, each situation is different, each problem is special. Sometimes one session is enough to bring clarity and shed a light on which direction one should take; sometimes, it takes years to find that path.
I see clients once per week. At times (either initiated by client or me), the frequency is increased to two times per week, but only temporarily. I believe that my clients should be more in the real world, than in my office, and that they need to take what we work on and apply it in the real world. When that happens consistently and our work is integrated well, the therapy is complete.

Groups I Work With

    Throughout my years practicing this profession, I have worked with many different kinds of populations. As I have experience working with patients of all ages, from many cultural backgrounds, with many different issues, I learned to be inquisitive about each individual's client values, views, and beliefs. I also learned my own clinical preferences. I very much enjoy working with teens and young adults, as well as women who are going through challenging times and need support and reminders of their strengths.
