Services Provided -- Clinical Modalities:
Individual Psychotherapy is like having a personal trainer for your emotional life and psychological well-being. It is a commitment to oneself and an investment in yourself to heal wounds and to achieve lifetime goals and emotional satisfaction.
Couples Therapy is where partners come together to work on themselves in the context of their intimate relationship. Bonding can be both wounding and healing. Therapy teaches relational skills and promotes healing. I help couples learn to manage conflict, to metabolize big feelings, to be influential with one another, to be more intimate if they desire, and to support each other to be their best selves.
Group Psychotherapy is a powerful and cost-effective medium for healing and personal growth. On a weekly or bi-weekly basis people come together in a therapeutic and confidential relationship to help one another find their truth, their best selves, and the lives they want to live. Group members report that the group experience is soothing and supportive and that impressive progress occurs in this setting. I value my collaboration with my co-therapist, Avrum Geurin Weiss, Ph.D.
Consultation and Supervision is available in individual, group, and workshop formats. I provide training and supervision for doctoral candidates, psychiatry residents, and professional psychotherapists. Consultation sessions attend to both the personal and professional issues that arise in the work of the psychotherapist. You determine the balance between personal and professional focus based on your needs and your sense of safety and resilience in each session.
