Using an integrative approach, I provide individual therapy to adults with a wide variety of issues. I use a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive, and hypnotherapy techniques. One or all of these techniques might be right for you at any given time during the course of treatment.
Therapy is a collaborative effort whereby we explore material from the unconscious which to a great extent drives our feelings and actions. I provide a safe atmosphere of non-judgment and empathy. My approach is warm and supportive. I take my work very seriously but also have a sense of humor and relaxed style. It is a pleasure helping individuals utilize their personal creativity to manage emotions and take on life's challenges. I believe that a strong therapeutic alliance is of utmost importance.
One of my specialties is helping people to overcome agoraphobia and gain the confidence to re-enter places and situations which they have come to fear. Anxiety can manifest in a myriad of ways and can range in intensity from frustrating to debilitating. I understand and can help. Please contact me for a free initial session. I look forward to hearing from you!
