I have had more than 20 years of experience, working with people from many different backgrounds, with general issues of anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and career/job questions. More specific concerns about lifestyles, and transitions in life, include such things as working on intimate relationships, marriage, starting/blending families, divorce, mid-life crises, health issues, addictions, and concerns of non-traditional lifestyles for artists or gays and lesbians. My approach is eclectic, and includes both cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic techniques. I combine a warm, empathic, positive approach with a careful scrutiny of the issues, often challenging old ideas.
I use problem/solution focused techniques, as well as an exploration of the underlying issues when necessary. This leads to a new vision of what is possible, and then a plan of how to make the desired changes.
I feel that therapy involves a mixture of art and science, and the ability to listen carefully. Therefore, I regularly attend seminars. This helps me look at people and situations from a well integrated and in-depth approach, understanding conscious as well as unconscious thoughts and feelings. Weekend times available.
