If you are looking for a therapist, I assume it's because you are unhappy with some part of yourself: your life, your career, or your relationships. The unhappiness can take many forms. You may feel depressed, or scared, or worried, or guilty,or angry, or ashamed. My forte is psychodynamic psychotherapy, which assumes that beneath the feelings that you are aware of, there is a network of other conflicting feelings operating out of your control. In dynamic psychotherapy, our goal will be to help you understand those deeper feelings, see how they are interfering with your well-being, and to help you change them.
It's hard work. You're not aware of those deeper feelings because you don't want to be. They're deeply painful and easier to just ignore. But to really master them, you have to know them. In my experience, dynamic therapy is an approach to making deep character changes that really works.
A bit of advice. Don't interview just one therapist. Request evaluation interviews with several of them. Ultimately, you'll get a sense of who will be best for you. If you can't be sure, go with the person you feel most comfortable talking to. Good luck in your search!

I do not accept any insurance. However, your insurance company may pay at least part of out-of-network fees. It's worth checking.
