The fact is that humans generally don't suffer without good reason and those reasons are multidimensional and multidetermined. As a result, successful psychotherapy does more than simply apply techniques to your problems or give you coping skills. While goal-setting and frequent reviews of our work together are critical to good outcomes, the treatment process may follow a path that is not easily predictable or, for that matter, short. And, ultimately, it is the quality of our relational contact that determines the success of our work so it's important that we're a good fit.
I have been in full-time private practice since 1999 and see children, adolescents, young adults and their families and have a particular interest in treating psychiatric illness, such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder as well as trauma, chemical dependency and personality disorders. I also see couples using an active, attachment-focused approach; conduct group therapy for young adults with “launching” problems; work with adults in long-term analytically-oriented psychotherapy; and offer individual and group supervision.
