Individual psychotherapy. I have been deliberate in developing an array of clinical tools to help facilitate your healing. My specialization is psychodynamic psychotherapy. I trained at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, the oldest and most established training institute in the United States. This provides me a background in helping to understand complex issues you may be facing whose origin and solution might not otherwise be immediately apparent. I generally spend several sessions conducting a thorough assessment, then conferring with you about how we can help you move toward healing. At times, I use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help triage problems you may be facing.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence-based practice for treating developmental and major traumas. At times, many people find that they are unable to move past certain emotions and memories despite intellectually understanding them. EMDR focuses the mind's ability to heal itself to quickly process old wounds so that you can start feeling better much faster and finally deal with issues and conflicts that have been holding you back for years.
Couples therapy, based in EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy). Oftentimes communication problems are at the heart of relationship issues. We all want so desperately to be heard and understood, but more often than not, couples have developed patterns that disrupt this ability to connect with each other. I can help you untangle the issues, clarify the bigger picture, and teach you to once again be able to express and feel love from your partner rather than dwelling in anger and hurt.
Psychological Evaluation. Sometimes what's wrong isn't immediately apparent. As a physician might order additional tests in order to understand what is not visible to the eye, a psychologist sometimes needs to use other measures to see below the surface. Psychological evaluation is used to help understand problems with learning, relationships, and mood disorders amongst other things.
TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy) is a technique for helping children and young adults heal from trauma.
