My Approach to Helping

The psychotherapy that I provide is supportive and collaborative in nature. It's a place for you to verbalize your feelings, clarify what you want, and examine your current coping strategies. I integrate therapy techniques from different approaches, primarily interpersonal (IPT), cognitive-behavioral and analytic or psychodynamic. The IPT component focuses on identifying any relationship conflicts or pitfalls, and helping you to make changes, e.g. to communicate your needs more effectively or make better choices when you date. Depending on your objectives, my integrated approach can help you explore the influence of your past and understand the origins of a maladaptive relationship pattern; to name emotions and heal from past trauma, and ultimately experience new ways of being in the world. The cognitive techniques address beliefs and thought patterns that may be causing you pain or getting in your way. I may recommend behavioral strategies to help manage intense emotions or change a habitual problem. The first couple of sessions involve an evaluation of your needs and expectations for therapy. I will offer you feedback and answer any questions that you might have about my approach.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have specialized training in interpersonal psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I treat depression, anxiety, eg. social phobia, performance anxiety, panic disorder, grief, stress and a wide range of emotional and personal development issues. Some of my clients have concerns regarding parenting young children, others have deep strains in relation to a parent with a personality disorder; some choose to focus on dating or a long-term relationship, with insecurity or uncertainty regarding commitment. With all, I have a special interest in facilitating clients' acceptance of feelings, and their own exploration of different ways to honor their feelings in a situation. In addition, well-informed about the impact of social support, belonging, and marginalization on mental health, I work to assist clients struggling with cultural or political changes, racial trauma, and identity stress. I can offer a short-term therapy (3 to 5 months) or a longer therapy of flexible duration, depending on your preference. I am committed to adapting the work to your strengths, needs, and objectives.
