Short term psychotherapy
In general, short term psychotherapy is an effective way to address a specific problem. For instance, short term therapy can help a person cope with life transitions, or reduce symptoms of depression. My approach to short term therapy involves collaborating with you to establish clear and appropriate goals. For the most part, this time limited approach involves increasing coping skills, and developing healthy relationship patterns.
Long term psychotherapy
Self-knowledge, free of shame or fear, can unlock one’s creativity, lead to stronger connections with others, and provide one with the sense of truly being alive. Long term psychotherapy is one of many ways to journey towards self-knowledge. My approach to long term work involves the assumption that through ongoing exploration of thoughts, feelings, fears, relationship patterns, dreams and hopes, one may change one’s life from the ‘inside-out.’
