Providing Psychotherapy and Counseling:
I see clients in both long and short-term psychotherapy. I belong to the school of relational and interpersonal psychoanalytic therapy that has evolved over the past forty years. It emphasizes the psychological importance of our relationships with others as the forces behind the ways we shape our expectations of ourselves and others.
When we first begin treatment, I focus on compassionately addressing the client’s immediate troubling symptoms.
My purpose is to create a safe environment where clients can access and express painful and angry feelings.
I help clients to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts, self-defeating patterns of behavior, the sources of debilitating depression and anxiety, personal dissatisfaction, and feelings of despair.
I educate clients about biological factors that contribute to these feelings and I encourage clients to practice mindfulness: a meditation practice proven to alleviate stress.
I help clients to think through new strategies for resolving their problems. This enables clients to develop new ways of relating to their family, friends, and their work environment.
