My Approach to Helping
Psychotherapy works to reduce your feelings of distress, as well as to help you achieve your goals. It can also help you get back on your growth track. I use an "integrative" approach to therapy, meaning that I draw from the extent of psychology theory and research, and will use both short- and long-term techniques. Overall, therapy takes a commitment of time, effort, and consistency. For some, it is a complex process. For others, it feels like support and the realization of one's goals. I believe I should understand you from your point of view, and I try to create an environment that supports self-awareness.
Over 25 years, my practice has been equally divided between men and women, and I have worked successfully with older adults into their late 80s. Although I do not do couple's counseling, I have successfully worked with the individual to affect the dynamic of the couple. Visit my website for additional information.
