Individual, couple, and family therapy
I provide assessment and psychotherapy services for youth, adults, couples and families struggling with difficulties that range from problems of daily living to chronic mental health issues. These include, but are not limited to: Anxious and depressed mood, bipolar disorder, behavioral problems, school/work problems, self-image, family conflict, parenting, intimacy, divorce, social skills, adjustment to life transitions, and personal growth.
My areas of expertise include emotional and behavioral problems in adolescence and adulthood and family and couple relationships. I also specialize in women's issues. I am one of the few licensed psychologists board certified in treating couples and families (ABPP). I have also received training and supervision in Functional Family Therapy, a science-based treatment for adolescents with behavior problems.
I have an integrative, cognitive-behavioral approach to mental health with a focus on interpersonal functioning. Personal growth occurs in the context of healthy relationships, and our connection with others is an essential part of who we are. How we think, behave, and relate are interconnected and essential components of our wellbeing. With my assistance, you will develop and practice the skills needed to address the difficulties you are experiencing as well as those you may encounter later on in life.
The length of the services I provide will depend on the severity of the problems you wish to address and resolve. Most individuals benefit from short-term psychotherapy (6 to 12 sessions); however, some difficulties require more sessions.
