My primary goal as a psychotherapist is to provide patients with a safe, supportive and growth-oriented environment in which they can learn to better face life's challenges, improve their relationships, and reach their full potential.
My style as a therapist tends to be more interactive and direct than neutral, and I work hard to help my patients progress toward their goals as quickly as possible. I believe that healing and growth takes place in the context of a strong therapeutic relationship, and I pay close attention to this aspect of my work.
I employ a variety of tools and techniques to help my patients attain their therapeutic goals, and actively tailor the treatment approach to suit the needs of my patients. I also emphasize treatment methods that are supported by the latest research findings, as appropriate. I maintain a great respect for individual differences, and welcome the opportunity to work with clients of diverse races, religious and ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
With regard to technique, I most commonly operate from Object Relations and Cognitive-Behavioral perspectives. Don't worry, you are not expected to already know what these terms mean! I will summarize these concepts for you below. Very simply put, however, I utilize these two approaches to 1) help you understand how you got to where you are, and 2) help you make desired changes.
