In my 30+ years of private practice, I have specialized in working with very successful adults who are simply stuck in their personal or professional development. Our focus has ranged from the heartbreak of infertility or divorce or the inability to find a partner, to the stress experienced by business owners and executives, to the loss of a loved one, to the transition of children leaving home. I also work with couples who are considering a commitment or who are experiencing difficulty in the relationship.
I provide short-term, solution-oriented psychotherapy, as well as long-term, insight oriented therapy depending on my clients' needs and wishes. My approach is eclectic: I have trained in many modalities, and I use what seems to fit your needs best, rather than trying to fit you into a narrow theoretical framework.
All the outcome research on successful therapy shows that a warm, supportive working relationship between client and therapist is the most important treatment factor; therefore I stress the development of that kind of mutual trust, directness, and honesty (with tact).
