Individual Therapy

My orientation for individual therapy integrates a variety of theoretical frameworks which I see as sharing many common ideas in addition to having their separate identities.

 

Central to me are the importance of the therapeutic relationship, empathy, and emotional attunement. I consider each client as unique and tailor my therapy as much as possible according to her or his needs, style, and personality.

My in-depth experience and understanding of couples work gives me special insights into relationship issues, which are often a source of other dissatisfaction and life difficulties, and I enjoy working with individuals who are also in couples therapy with other therapists.

The frameworks I draw on include attachment theory, psychodynamic (STDP and AEDP),  cognitive-behavioral, Gestalt, neuropsychology, EMDR, positive and mindfulness psychologies, and family and systems theory.

The following are areas I typically help individuals with:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationship concerns

  • Family relationships

  • Feelings of inadequacy or poor self-image

  • Parenting

  • Shyness and other social concerns

  • Stress

  • Work issues
