We all can reach points in our life where we become stuck and can struggle to manage thoughts, emotions and or relationships. These times can last for months or even years. Frequently we address these problems at least initially through our own means of self help. If these measures fail to unlock ourselves we can turn to psychotherapy as a process that can guide us to a different way of understanding and coping. Psychotherapy can assist in helping to understand and remove our self-imposed barriers.
My approach is first and foremost to create an atmosphere in the therapy process where a person can feel comfortable to share and explore many painful feelings and thoughts. Once this is accomplished therapy is able to address what is underneath the pain. Afterwards barriers are replaced with insight and more adaptive ways of being.
My approach is Eclectic and I draw most frequently from cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic and a problem solving framework keeping in mind the person's capacity for self determination. I am comfortable working with most age groups and a variety of problem areas.
