Whatever your challenges may be, many clients like the attention that individual
therapy provides, where our entire focus is on addressing your concerns. Relational
Psychodynamic Therapy uses our relationship to helps you understand and increase
motivation; I incorporate techniques from other approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral
Therapy, as well. Therapy is most effective when we meet weekly or twice a week, though
under certain circumstances, we may meet less often.
Psychoanalysis has evolved a great deal since the time of Freud. Like many contemporary analysts, I have a relational approach, which focuses on the healing relationship between analyst and client. This intensive therapy is useful for long-term problems that are complex and difficult to resolve. It is also part of the training process for professional psychoanalysts. We will meet three times a week or more in psychoanalytic treatment.
Whether you have long-term, entrenched problems in your relationship, or just want to learn how to communicate more effectively, couples therapy can help you better understand and empathize with each other and find creative solutions to your problems. Couples therapy is most effective on a weekly basis; in certain situations, we may meet every other week.
With many years of experience providing psychotherapy and consultation to clinical social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychoanalysts, I provide consultation to licensed clinicians on specific cases or practice issues, on an as-needed or on a regular basis (weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly).
Teletherapy may be an option for any of these services. Ask me for more information.
