I offer individual psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults focusing on depression and anxiety. In addition I offer specialized health psychology services.
My Psychotherapy Philosophy:
My unique clinical training has provided me with the perspective to be respectful and cognizant of the strengths of various forms of treatment. While there are numerous ways to address the challenges that emerge in our lives, I focus on providing an integrative psychotherapy approach, incorporating health psychology, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral processes. I offer treatment that has been proven to be effective in clinical trials, and methods that are supported by years of research.
It is my philosophy that as we increase our awareness and come to a better understanding of ourselves, we become empowered. This is the unburdening feeling of freedom that quality therapy can offer. However, positive change in psychotherapy does not come without effort, and in making the courageous choice to begin therapy, there must be a motivation to look closely at our innermost selves.
The process of self-discovery and healing has its own ebb and flow, and my focus rests in leading you on the best path to excavate both wisdom and perspective. There are rarely simple solutions in therapy, and my therapy will offer dedicated support and insight. Together we will examine previous negative patterns and coping. In learning positive coping mechanisms and gaining perspective on patterns and habits, we will develop strategies that lead to positive change.
Health psychology is a science concerned with understanding how psychological and behavioral factors are involved in physical health. When working with patients experiencing health related difficulties, I follow a biopsychosocial approach so that health is viewed not only as a biological process but also in terms of psychological and social aspects. I use insight-oriented techniques based on psychodynamic theory, and provide a holistic approach to minimize effects of stress interactions between mind and body. I offer individual psychology treatment for children, adolescents and adults for a range of mental health concerns and life stressors detailed below:
• Depression • Generalized Anxiety • Self-Esteem / Body Image • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder • Post-Partum Depression • Women’s Health Concerns • Infertility • Weight loss
