Please find additional information on my website: www.lwpsych.org. Welcome! Feeling depressed, anxious...wanting better? Chances are, if you have sought care through traditional channels, you've been prescribed an antidepressant or antianxiety medication and not much else. While medications can be helpful, there's usually more that goes into achieving optimal mental health. I help adults with anxiety, depression, and PTSD worry less, improve their mood, and engage more effectively in their daily lives.

I believe that everyone has a right to transparent and caring mental health treatment. Mental health is just as important as physical health and often there is significant overlap, when the mind is not healthy the body suffers. I have experience working with children and adults, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I work with patients on a variety of concerns: anxiety, depression, bipolar, PTSD, ADHD, grief, addiction as well as other disorders. I believe that with support and guidance mental illness should not hold back anyone from living a fulfilling and happy life. I offer both in-person and telehealth.

Attachment-based Psychiatrists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
