My Approach to Helping

My objective as a psychotherapist is to provide safe, comfortable and judgment-free environment for clients to work through issues. In addition, I provide warmth and flexibility in working with my clients. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, living with chronic medical conditions, self- esteem issues, relationship and career issues, among others. I work with adolescents and adults of all ages.

People come into therapy to make changes in their lives, to reduce emotional pain or to get past "stuck" points, and resolve conflicts. I am there to help with the process. I believe that it is important to have a good match between therapist and client in order to make the therapeutic process effective, and I am also of the belief that the therapeutic relationship can contribute to the healing process. I primarily work psychodynamically, but I find that at times it is useful to include cognitive-behavioral techniques into the therapy, depending on the client's needs. Unresolved issues from the past can get in the way of attaining personal and professional growth. Psychotherapy can enhance one's self-awareness and the ability to recognize in one's own self-defeating and self-sabotaging patterns, and to change these patterns.

Overall, I see my role as a psychotherapist is to respect the goals that my clients come in with, and support the process of working toward these goals.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length of the therapy depends largely on whether the client feels he or she has attained his/her objective. The therapist, having come to know the client, is usually in a position to advise a client as to whether or not more treatment would be helpful, and whether leaving treatment might be premature, or a means of avoiding painful unresolved issues.. In general, I do not recommend that clients attend therapy sessions less than once weekly, unless special circumstances warrant this. Sometimes more than once weekly can be extremely beneficial.
