How does psychotherapy work? An essential feature of this approach is that a person and the therapist develop a unique and trusting relationship. In this safe, non-judgmental environment, a person's difficulties are discussed, and we explore attendant problems, history, relationships and goals. Virtual sessions for individuals, couples, and families offered.
