My Approach to Helping
Feeling helpless to help oneself often brings people into psychotherapy.
I help adults and adolescents with emotional issues that show up in many ways: relationship problems, anger, anxiety or depression that may not make sense or may seem unchangeable, difficulties with work or school performance, or simply feeling stuck.
My approach is insight-oriented which allows me to help you to ultimately help yourself through deeper self-awareness. The understanding that grows in this kind of therapy allows more emotional freedom and creates lasting changes that can improve and enrich lives while lessening symptoms.
I have post-doctoral certification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and am currently taking advanced training in psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis facilitates the momentum of a deeper therapeutic experience with sustainable benefits after therapy has ended.
In addition to private practice, I have extensive knowledge of human development and experience assessing children and adolescents with a wide range of emotional and learning problems. This background gives me a unique perspective when working with adults as well as adolescents.
