Individual sessions focus on the partnership between therapist and client. Psychotherapy requires your very active involvement, honesty, and openness in order to change your thoughts, feelings and/or behavior. As a therapist, I bring certain expertise to our collaboration while you bring self-knowledge, the ability to learn from your life experiences, and a vision of what you want your life to be. Together, we will work to explore and understand what brought you to this point in your life, define the problem areas to be worked on, and participate in therapeutic activities to help you make the changes you desire. I work from an integrative perspective and rely on a broad range of techniques, including psychodynamic, mindfulness-based and cognitive-behavioral interventions.
Group therapy can be a powerful way to work through interpersonal issues related to the past, present, and future that may be getting in the way of your personal growth and relationships. Groups function as a microcosm of the real world. They offer a safe, confidential space to work through interpersonal difficulties in the here and now. Members help each other unpack unhealthy narratives and encourage deepening connections. Hearing how other people have dealt with their challenges, or even simply how another person suffers from something we know, can help us understand our own predicament and to remind us that we are never alone. Group therapy is an excellent way to complement your individual therapy journey.
Clinical supervision is an essential component of professional development for therapists. Supervisors provide ongoing support and guidance with navigating ethical issues, developing clinical skills, and identifying areas for improvement through reviewing cases, discussing treatment approaches, and providing resources for continued learning. As a supervisor, I strive to provide a nonjudgmental and comfortable atmosphere where it is safe to say anything at all that will help you to achieve your practice goals. My primary goal is to ensure that you are providing the best possible care for your clients.
