My Approach to Helping
I provide psychotherapy and psychological assessment for a wide variety of issues. My therapeutic approach is guided by the ample research showing the therapist-client relationship is the single most important factor for effective therapy. I strive to create a collaborative alliance, putting you in charge of the therapy hour but remaining an active participant. When appropriate, I use various empirically supported interventions including EMDR, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia.
Since it is so important to find a therapist who is a good "fit" I welcome calls from potential clients. The best way to reach me is through my direct line: 1-800-651-8085 ext. 03998. I am happy to discuss therapy in general as well as my own philosophy of helping.
Finally, I also do many kinds of psychological evaluations including ones for forensic purposes (competency to proceed, sanity, diminished capacity, competency to waive Miranda), disability exams (worker's compensation, IME, IPE, personal injury), immigration (hardship waiver, U visa), IVF, and adoption. I am happy to use an interpreter when necessary.
