My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping begins with the understanding that in order for therapy to be effective, it must take place within a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental therapy relationship, a relationship that is built with the sole purpose of understanding and helping you. With that said, I do not believe there is ever a "one size fits all" approach to helping people. I tailor each therapy to the particular person I am working with, working not simply on your diagnosis or disorder (for a diagnosis actually tells us quite little about what needs to happen for you to feel better), but on how those things fit within the broader story of your life--your history, relationships, needs, personality and difficulties.
I integrate elements of a number of helpful frameworks, depending on the needs of each person, but am especially trained in providing psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy, an approach to therapy that is helpful in treating a wide range of problems.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with more about your needs and how I may be able to help you heal and to grow.
