Affordable Therapy, MSW, LSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Philadelphia
My style is to get to the situation quickly with the least amount of sessions & expense. The first couple of sessions are weekly and then you and I decide on the frequency. I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral (CBT), ACT Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy-all 3 are considered short-term therapies. You will be provided with support and be given helpful techniques to deal with your situation.
I work with individuals (straight & gay) who struggle with ongoing distress, and with partnered couples, focusing on the area of their discontent by working to improve the relationship through healthy communication skills. Each partner will be taught listening skills to further your understanding of each other.
The first step when calling a therapist is a big step. And it is my goal to make it a comfortable, completely CONFIDENTIAL and satisfying experience for you. After this no-obligation telephone call, if you feel as though you would like to take the next step, an appointment is made.
