Method of Treatment & Personal Philosophy
While I am trained in a variety of methods of therapy, I choose to focus on both modern and classical psychoanalytic and relational approaches. These models rely on personal strengths and insight oriented processes that uncover underlying conflicts that cause emotional pain in daily life. I have found that by listening carefully to a patient's needs, I am able to create a framework that resonates best for each individual. Each patient is conceptualized through a unique lens using analytic, interpersonal, attachment, and trauma focused psychodynamic theories. In this way, early hurts are gradually uncovered and unhealthy relational patterns emerge. This allows for understanding and change in an emotionally safe environment.
Patient and therapist embark on careful exploration of early experiences and their impact on daily functioning and overall life satisfaction. This dynamic approach allows me to respectfully and non-judgmentally accept patients and their experiences while allowing for insight and growth. Healing occurs through the richness of the interactions between doctor and patient via a strong working alliance, interpersonal connection and the working through of underlying conflicts that no longer serve a positive purpose in one's life and relationships.
Together we work toward comprehensive understanding and create lasting, meaningful change.
