Recovery Maintenance Workshop
Making the decision to pursue therapy is a choice often made during a time when making yet another decision feels cumbersome.
I am happy you have made the decision to follow therapy and to schedule time to meet with me. The process of initiating therapy and meeting with a new therapist can be somewhat stressful. Following is some information about my clinical orientation and background.
I strongly believe that people are not defined by a diagnosis or demographic. I have specialties (see list), but the actual special program of therapy is not solely a course determined by this information or in any way a direct-paint by numbers-approach.
The therapist and client have a shared purpose of participating in a structured conversation that will clarify core beliefs, identify unresolved conflicts, and establish realistic options, goals or possibilities.
Utilizing in office counseling, phone sessions/teletherapy and Skype, I provide individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy to varied population ranging from adolescents to senior citizens. I have extensive experience helping clients work through family of origin issues, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, and stress due to life changes. I enjoy combining insight oriented psychotherapy with the structured goal setting aspect of behavioral counseling. When beneficial, I encourage a team approach and make available referrals to general practitioners, nutritionists, psychiatrists, or other professionals. I understand that many of my clients are working full time and beyond, some are pursuing additional vocational and creative goals while striving to maintain family commitments.
In order to match the scheduling preferences of my clients, I am providing phone and Skype sessions Weekdays – 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, EST. Office sessions are scheduled Fridays and Sundays. EMDR Sessions are also scheduled on Sundays.
Sessions take place in the most convenient setting. As your day takes shape, you can decide where you would like to be for your session.
