Announcement icon I can hold online, video or phone sessions with clients (e.g., Zoom, Skype, Facetime, Doxy.me or an online teletherapy service).
For me, psychotherapy is offering patience, understanding, insight, acceptance, compassion, relationship, and a secure base to persons suffering from burdens too heavy to carry alone. I compare myself to a container into which my patients pour their unbearable feelings. My task is to detoxify these feelings and make them easier to understand and tolerate. I help my patients to use healthy relationships with others to meet their emotional needs and the emotional needs of others. To establish and maintain healthy relationships, we work in session on understanding our own and others’ mental states (wishes, feelings, intentions) and how these are connected to how we behave toward each other. Relationships tend to work better when we are able to understand our own and others’ minds and how our minds influence how we behave toward each other.
I am a licensed clinical and school psychologist with 26 years of experience in private practice, providing treatment to children, adolescents, and adults. My areas of expertise with children and adolescents include disruptive behavior disorders, attachment disorders, codependency on a parent suffering from sex addiction, and the consequences of childhood physical and sexual abuse. My areas of expertise with adults include severe personality disorders such as borderline personality disorder, sex addiction, and codependency.
That phone seems to weigh 800 pounds when you need help. But I want to listen to you and see if I can help, even if you feel ashamed or anxious about calling me. I use a variety of clinical techniques uniquely suited to the suffering individual, which include psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, play therapy, family and couples therapy, and task-based therapies. After meeting with me, people often tell me they feel relieved. Choose to feel relieved!
