Psychotherapy is useful to address a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family problems, sexual issues, academic and career issues, self-esteem issues, and eating disorders. The specific therapeutic approach utilized may vary depending on the individual needs and goals, and can include symptom reduction, changing behaviors, specific life goals, or just feeling better.
Sessions may be directed but most often, the individual sets the agenda speaking freely about whatever is on their mind. I facilitate the exploration of feelings, the development of insight, provide pointed questions in response to what you have shared and may offer specific strategies for handling some of the more complicated life issues.
Psychotherapy is conducted at a minimum of 1 time per week, but often 2 times per week in a 45 minute session.
