Dr. Sharon H. Press, PhD, Psychologist in Westport
My approach to therapy is practical With over 30 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults I focus my energy with clients on the present. I help my clients identify their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are creating difficulties for them. I will help you use skills you already have or develop new techniques for managing difficulties in your life. If issues from the past are keeping you from managing your present life we will work together to neutralize issues from the past, so you can manage current life stresses with current, more effective techniques.
I specialize in complex cases involving children, adolescents, and adults. Individual and family therapy is utilized.My typical clients have significant emotional and learning difficulties. Divorce, substance abuse, and dysfunctional family structures complicate their lives. Through a combination of caring, empathy, support, and humor we work together to manage the stress in your life.
My practice is unique because I bring a diagnostic understanding to my client's issues that takes into account individual, systemic, biological, and cultural factors that impact functioning. I will work with other professionals who can be helpful with my clients ultimate adjustment and success in life.
