My Approach to Helping
In psychotherapy and couples counseling, I use a flexible and interactive approach to assist clients in developing new coping strategies. I do this by helping clients to understand how their moods are influenced by the interplay between biological factors and their past and present experiences. I also educate clients about the new advances in neuroscience that emphasize the role of the brain in shaping how we feel and our ability to manage uncomfortable feelings. This body of research informs us about why it is often so hard to change how we feel. It confirms why it is difficult to “snap out” of negative feeling states.
I work with all kinds of people, couples living together or married, straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender.
My practice includes work with a wide variety of individuals and couples whose presenting issues are quite diverse. Some of the typical issues I work with in my psychotherapy practice are:
-Relationship Troubles (family, work, friends)
-Couples Issues (marital conflict, premarital issues,divorce, relationship problems of people living together or separately, straight, gay and lesbian, transgender)
-Job Stress and Dissatisfaction
-Substance Abuse and Recovery Issues
-Coping with Chronic Illness
-Grief and Loss
-Coaching re: job goals and dating
