My Approach to Helping

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process that involves the therapist (me) and the patient/client (you). As your therapist, I am interested in learning the various aspects of you including; how you experience situations of concern in your life, your relationships with others, what leads you to feel anxious, depressed or overwhelmed, and any other issues that cause you discomfort. Essentially, my goal is to work together to develop a better understanding of you. I have created a comfortable environment in which to begin the process of exploring your issues of concern. I primarily work with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship issues and life transitions. The way in which I work with people is from a psychoanalytic psychodynamic approach. Using this approach, I believe that it is important to gently explore your current situation and how it relates to your past experiences.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to my graduate education as a Clincial Social Worker, I completed a two year advanced psychotherapy training program at the Psychoanayltic Center of Philadelphia. I am an in-network provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Personal Choice, Magellan Behavioral Health, Highmark Blue Shield, and Keystone. If I am not a provider for your insurance, I will give you appropriate documentation to submit to your insurance carrier so that you can be reimbursed for an out-of-network provider.

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

If I were to think of a specific psychotherapy issue that I feel adept at helping people with, it would be anxiety. I find that as it is explored and a deeper understanding is developed, the person is able to manage and handle the intensity of their anxiety in a better way. Having this kind of understanding can help a person to then view and respond to situations that may create anxiety in more productively. Ideally, this can help one have a better sense of self and lead a more fulfilling life.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

A therapist is someone with whom you will develop a trusting relationship. A therapist is someone who is there to help you make sense out of things that are confusing or difficult for you to make sense of on your own. A therapist is someone who is there to help you explore issues that are bothering you and preventing you from moving forward. Therefore, one of the most important factors in choosing a therapist is finding one with whom you feel most comfortable in developing a relationship so that you can feel free to talk about anything that is on your mind.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Most people who are in treatment with me for psychotherapy attend weekly appointments. There is no rule about how often one needs to come in for therapy, however it is more beneficial to be seen on a consistent basis. In my practice, there is no ending date or time limit that determines when the treatment is finished. This is something that we would discuss together to decide when it would be appropriate to end treatment.
