I see adolescents and adults for psychotherapy, consultation, and assessment. I also see younger patients for psychological testing and assessment. My therapeutic work is guided by the idea that psychological distress is often related to habitual ways of perceiving and interacting with the world--ways that have protected and helped in the past, but now get in the way of living a more satisfying, enjoyable, and meaningful life. I am practical but also value thoroughness and depth. Whether it is something quite specific or a vague feeling that something is wrong, I would love to be in your corner.

My approach to treatment is fundamentally grounded in a psychodynamic approach. This orientation examines the interplay of historical, emotional, social, and biological factors that contribute to who you are (including your strengths and vulnerabilities). I also draw heavily from family systems and cognitive therapy orientations.

In our work together, we may focus on initial symptom relief at first, though we may also take more time to look deeply at the foundations from which the problems have originated. The relationship we develop becomes a crucible for change. See my website, www.brucepoulsen.com, for more information.
