Psychotherapy

   

Psychotherapy is the primary clinical service that I offer.  Depression, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, relationship issues, and issues involving attention and learning are frequently the foci of treatment.  Treatment modalities include individual, couples, and family psychotherapy.  

     

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process wherein my clinical skills and experience are brought together with your efforts and insights so that your personal goals can be achieved and/or problems resolved.  There are many different methods I may use to deal with the issues that you hope to address.  Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit.  Instead, it calls for a very active effort on your part.  In order for the therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about both during our sessions and at home.

 

Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks.  Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress; however, since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness as we work together.  Our aim will be to help you achieve your goals, but there are no guarantees of what you will experience.

 

Our first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs. By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue with therapy. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions of whether you feel comfortable working with me.

 

I will usually schedule one 50-minute session (one appointment hour of 50 minutes duration) each week or every other week at a time we agree on.
