Message to clients

My philosophy of psychotherapy is that 'everything works for someone and nothing works for everyone.' I tailor my approach to your needs to you as an individual. I look for strengths that can help you resolve your challenges wherever they may be found. Often, what we see as problems can also be sources of strength and resourcefulness and I bring that thinking into the work I do with all of my clients. I focus on solutions when they are your focus and I offer support when that is what you need. I work with a variety of treatment approaches. I have done classical Psychoanalytic work with a couch and notepad, and I have helped patients build life skills outside an office setting. I think a doctrinaire approach is nearly always counterproductive and I will do whatever you find effective. Psychotherapy is a dialogue, and I welcome and thrive on the feedback of my clients to find what will make psychotherapy useful and conducive to growth.
