Maybe you are at my website because something in your life isn’t working. You may have noticed you are experiencing more physical symptoms, not able to stay on top of tasks and wonder if you are depressed or that these symptoms are a result of stress. You may find yourself anxious or worrying more than usual or snapping at those you care about.
I offer a form of psychotherapy called psychodynamic psychotherapy.
This approach is helpful when a patient has not been able to resolve his or her problems via the usual ways of coping such as trying to figure it out alone, sharing with a friend or mentor, and using a variety of self-help resources.
If this approach is what is called for, the first goal is that we create an environment where you feel safe to be open. For one thing, except for extreme circumstances which we will discuss in our consultation, therapy is confidential. What you decide to tell me stays in the room. Additionally, there is no judgment as to what has happened or what you have to say.
