Announcement icon During this time of uncertainty, I am offering the option to meet via videoconference to address anxiety, trauma and stress reduction.
I feel that therapy is most effective when the patient and therapist work both in the present and the past. Often the patient seeks therapy in order to relieve a symptom (i.e. depression, anxiety) or to resolve a relationship issue and they want relief quickly. I understand this need to feel better as quickly as possible but also feel that it is important to address early interpersonal issues that are having an impact on current relationships. In working along these parallel paths patients often feel relief of symptoms and gain a better understanding of lifelong dysfunctional patterns.
In addition to general psychotherapy, I specialize in working with families addressing the physical, emotional and ethical concerns related to infertility issues. In a realistic and kind way, we can approach decision making, grief and hope together.
