I recommend that clients begin with two initial 45 minute consultations. These visits will give you a chance to meet me and to determine if I am the right therapist for your needs and goals.
If you would like to continue meeting, I will then recommend a session frequency based on your needs and availability. I typically recommend 1 weekly 45-50 minute session. In some cases, I might recommend that you come in twice per week. I will base this recommendation on the nature of your concerns. In the end, the decision will be up to you.
In addition to individual therapy, I offer couples therapy for couples who are struggling with difficulties in communication, anger management, intimacy, emotional withdrawal, and divorce.
I have experience in working with children and adolescents from ages ten and up to address emotional difficulties surfacing in school and family life. These difficulties might emerge in the form of difficulty concentrating, a depressed or anxious mood, an aversion towards school, and sometimes in the form of risky behavior that puts the child at risk.
I am trained in object relations, self-psychological and relational approaches to psychoanalysis. If you are considering analysis, please feel free to call me to discuss your interest.
