My Approach to Helping
When we feel stuck in our situation, it can create feelings of hopelessness. In addition to the many problems that complicate our daily lives such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, patients come to me with complex relationship issues including marital distress, divorce recovery, verbal & emotional abuse, loss of child, parent, or spouse. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, to address the root problem, not just the symptoms. Like physical therapy, the goal is to get well and end treatment. I offer perspective on your experience, and provide clear, concise directions on meeting your treatment goals.
I consider patterns in your behavior and biological explanations when I address your symptoms. I deliver evidence-based techniques, including CBT, to help you make changes and ultimately feel better. Regardless of the specific issue, all patients have something in common: the desire to feel better. We will work together on providing the best path to wellness.
My patients come from a variety of backgrounds who have had complex mental health disorders and difficult life situations. My experience helping patients in a major group practice, providing them with a mental health perspective on their care, has allowed me to become an expert in rapid assessment and specialize in most forms of mental illness.
