Psychotherapy is a process in which a client works in close collaboration with a mental health practitioner to reduce distressing emotional experiences (i.e. depression and anxiety); to change behaviors (i.e. substance use and anger outbursts); and to improve relationships, work, and other life activities. The structure of therapy varies significantly according to the style of the therapist and the particular difficulty being treated. My approach to therapy is warm, collaborative, and individually tailored to my clients’ unique strengths and life issues. As a psychologist, I also find it very important to draw upon recent developments in psychological science in order to most effectively serve the treatment needs of my clients. Please view my web pages on individual therapy and couples therapy for more detailed information about my approach to treatment.
