• Grief and loss
• Stress management
I offer adult clients a positive nurturing psychotherapeutic experience.
I specialize in individual treatment but will meet with couples
or families when appropriate. My approach is eclectic— psychodynamic,
supportive and insight-oriented, ever mindful of the mind/body
I engage clients in a verbal exchange, where they are gently encouraged
to give voice to their feelings. I help them understand the underlying
causes, the reasons
for their responses, and offer various ways to alleviate their emotional distress
in a safe, non-threatening environment. This approach can be very effective
in treating issues of unrelenting sadness, anxiety, grief, guilt,
low self-esteem, and feelings of loss of control.
