Since no two people are alike, I customize each person’s work with me. The focus is on each client’s situation and comfort level.
I primarily offer psychodynamic (psychoanalytically-oriented) psychotherapy, is then followed by “EMDR (and related trauma-informed therapies), and cognitive therapy. Often, I combine various therapeutic approaches to meet the needs of my clients. For instance, we may uncover a pattern of behavior or perspective that is no longer helpful, but harder to understand and change. Some forms of psychodynamic psychotherapy may therefore be effective in addressing emotional, unintentional roadblocks we might encounter.
Other difficulties, including problems coping, may be better addressed through cognitive therapy. In cognitive therapy, a person can often address the way they think, believe, or perceive a situation, or themselves. By consciously altering automatic self-talk or assumptions, some problems are alleviated. Then, in some cases, applying a solution-focused approach to a problem is easiest and provides quick results.
The couples and group therapy I offer primarily use psychodynamic and interpersonal approaches.
You are welcome to a complimentary consultation by telephone where we can discuss various options and determine how to address your situation.
