My approach is informed and inspired by the belief that we are all doing our best to cope with the life circumstances that we have been given and then create for ourselves. However, our coping mechanisms can limit our growth as individuals and inhibit our success in work, relationships, family, and leisure activities. Through careful attention and understanding of how these patterns both help and hurt, my approach to therapy aims to provide a relationship that allows relief from great pain and distress. This creates possibilities for a fuller and more enriching experience of yourself and life.
As a clinical psychologist and a psychoanalyst, I treat individuals with a range of challenges. Common concerns I see and treat include but are not limited to:
I see people from weekly to up to four times per week. Weíll work together to determine what treatment plan will work the best for you.
While this is often a difficult question to answer, if you have suffered for a long time, been chronically unhappy or unfulfilled, have tried many things including medication but nothing seems to work, then psychotherapy is a worthwhile option. When considering seeking a psychotherapist, it is important to understand each therapistís approach and decide whether their style and yours are a good fit.† †
