Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy requires a therapist to have the capacity to feel empathy and compassion for what a patient may not be able to tolerate in him or herself. There are many different types of psycho-therapies including- insight therapy, cognitive therapy, somatic therapy, or relationship therapy. Finding the right therapy for you is important because people do not accept help when they do not connect with the way the help is delivered.

Respect and Understanding

I have a wealth of experience using many different types of psychotherapy, and I will discuss psychotherapy options with you. With respect and understanding, I work in partnership with each individual to build on their strengths and attain the personal growth that they want to accomplish. I can work with you in my office, over the phone, or through Skype.

A word of advice: Whether you come to me or someone else, interview your therapist. Ask questions about them and whether they have ever been in therapy.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

I have many years of experience working with children and adolescents. What is truly crucial is that your child or adolescent feels a connection to the therapist. The connection may happen in the first session or the third, but it has to happen for therapy to be successful. Every child and adolescent is different and deserves individualized care and attention. Parents are sometimes frustrated that even through they have treated each of their children the same, a child or adolescent may feel that he or she has not been treated equally. Treating each child and adolescent the way he or she wants to be treated is more important that treating each child and adolescent the same. I approach each young client with patience and I work to earn their trust.
