What is your orientation or approach to therapy?
I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioral orientation but also include eclectic approaches depending on the person's needs. What that means is that I tend to focus on thoughts, feelings and behaviors in the here-and-now in an effort to try to bring about positive changes in the present. I talk about the past as it informs or influences the present. However, as every person who enters the office is different, I tailor my approach to what would best meet the individual's goals.
What are your areas of expertise?
I have expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, addictions, weight issue, relationships issues, grief and loss, and life planning. I would be happy to discuss my expertise in your area of concern.
