My Approach to Helping
Life is too short to go through it suffering, living below your potential in relationships, work, and school. If previous therapies or medications haven't produced the positive results you want, my unique approach may provide the new and different experience you're needing.
For further information on my perspective and specialties, you can feel free to check out my website and read my Topic Expert blog posts on goodtherapy.org. You will find links to all of them when you scroll to the bottom of this profile.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am a generalist practitioner, competent to assist you with a wide range of difficulties in living. I work frequently with people who are feeling stuck or struggling in their careers or important relationships, and also with people experiencing anxiety and depression.
I also have some unique areas of expertise that may be useful to you:
1) "Treatment resistant" conditions-- If medications andor previous therapy have not helped you resolve your emotional difficulties, my unique approach to therapy may provide you with the new and different experience that you need so you can reach your goals.
2) Medically unexplained physical symptoms-- If you are suffering from physical symptoms (e.g., irritable bowels, migraine, fibromyalgia, etc.) and medical tests and interventions have not provided relief, emotional factors may be contributing. I am trained to diagnose and treat the emotional factors that drive these types of physical difficulties. Please check out my website iehdc.com for more on this specialty.
3) Relationship problems-- If you are struggling with problematic interpersonal patterns at work, with friends and family, or in romantic relationships, you and I can identify the forces driving these problems and, if you wish, help you to overcome them.
My Role as a Therapist
Supporting you is my primary task as your therapist. If you are feeling supported, then I am doing my job. That said, optimal support looks different for every person, at every phase of recovery. Whatever your needs, I will aim to meet you with appropriate support at every phase of your healing process, and can use a variety of approaches to do so.
