In response to the corona crisis I have adapted my practice to include teletherapy. I continue to work with individuals and couples in person. My office does not have a waiting room, and the office itself is disinfected several times a day. Whether you are more comfortable meeting face to face or to meet via HIPPA compliant teletherapy, I am here to support you. I am willing to work with any financial limitations due to the impact of the Corona shutdown.
I offer individual psychotherapy, brief and long-term, to help adults and children understand themselves better and deal with life's challenges and make the most of their potential in the areas of interpersonal relationships at home, school and work.
I work with a wide range of issues from adjusting to a positive life change to the effects of childhood trauma.
My approach integrates psychodynamic/psychoanalytic and supportive therapies. I believe the most important factors leading to positive change in therapy are the patient's motivation as well as a positive, collaborative, and professional working relationship in which the person can feel accepted, supported and understood.
