Announcement icon I am following the Governor's stay-at-home order. I am doing Video and Telephone Psychotherapy using Zoom. Please be cautious and safe.
In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.
My psychotherapeutic interests, coupled with my interest in human development throughout the life cycle, gives me a unique therapeutic perspective. I have taught child development to post-master degree child, adolescent, and adult clinicians for nearly 30 years.
I try to integrate the findings of neuroscience, the research on human development, and trauma-informed practice into an integrated self-psychological neuropsychodynamic model of psychotherapy. Using a level of analysis approach, I see psychotherapy as a collaborative dialogical process.
