Seeking psychological help is a courageous step and I strive to make it understandable and effective for clients. Please feel free to email me. I tend to work in a transparent manner, explaining what we do and why, to increase your insight and engagement. A good “fit” between client and psychologist is key, and I would encourage you to look until you find that. I primarily offer Clinical Psychology assessment and treatment plans for the issues a client is experiencing, offering an evidence-based therapy that we agree on. There are times when self-help, a good website, or proven therapy book (bibliotherapy) will be what I advise too.
I have a particular interest in working with clients’ anxiety (now better understood as the anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and stress-related conditions) and depression using CBT; recovery from PTSD using Cognitive Processing Therapy; and Schema Therapy for unresolved childhood issues, low sense of self-worth, and relationship problems. I am LGBTI-friendly.
People experiencing stress and adjustment disorders, insomnia, dealing with illness and cognitive deficits, as well as many kinds of loss and grief can also benefit from talking therapy. I have a long-standing interest in marital/relationship therapy, helping couples or individuals through betrayals and relationship repair or moving on.
