SERVICES

The choice to begin psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a significant commitment to yourself, your child, and/or your family. Careful consideration at the beginning of this process is necessary.  Please review the following information.  Ask me any questions you have when we meet. 

 

The process begins with an evaluation phase to consider your current needs.  Once I have enough information, I will offer my professional recommendations.  At this time we will determine that I have the necessary understanding of your concerns and the skills to treat them before proceeding.

 

Psychotherapy is intensive and experiential.  Frequent sessions allow me greater contact with your concerns and processes, thus regular attendance and a predictable schedule are crucial for an optimal outcome.

Psychotherapeutic Services I Offer

 

Individual Adults – emphasis on current functioning, family of origin history, individual attachment style, quality of interpersonal relationships, and/or single-issue treatments
