My goal, as a psychologist, is to facilitate your development of your best self, as defined by you. Together we work to help you become more authentically yourself and develop a life that is more rewarding, fulfilling and pleasurable.
I offer individual psychotherapy for older teenagers through senior adults. The people with whom I work experience a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, self-esteem concerns, as well as recovery from childhood or adult trauma, or abuse.
You may also be seeking psychotherapy for assistance with a life transition or challenge, such as a career change, relationship change, health concerns, parenting issues, or if you are experiencing the loss of a loved one. Indeed, any situation in which you believe you are not coping as well as you’d like, or perhaps aren’t as fulfilled as you would like to be is appropriate for psychotherapy.
My approach to psychotherapy is an active partnership with you, the client. Within a secure and respectful psychotherapeutic relationship we work together to understand both what is going well in addition to what is not going well in your life. So often in our society we focus on what’s wrong without looking at what is good. I find a more wholistic understanding not only helps put concerns in perspective, but also helps you gain confidence to use your strengths to assist you in all areas of your life.
We will explore your life to learn how you arrived at this point and what is interfering in your efforts to resolve your conflict or area of concern. This involves examining conscious and unconscious beliefs and feelings, reviewing your life history including early family life, as well as reassessing the roles these factors have in your life.
Through this process of self-discovery, we can learn which actions are facilitating your efforts and which are interfering. We then work together to help you discover and implement more effective ways of coping with life’s transitions and challenges.
