Therapy is a frightening idea for many people. In fact, it is often misconstrued as being for those who are "crazy" or "nuts" and the idea of going to talk to someone outside the family is seen as shameful. Yet, therapy affords you an opportunity to examine problems you haven't been able to resolve independently, such as changing your relationship to food or giving up alcohol.
Some patients come to my office because their anxiety is worsening and making it impossible to concentrate at work or engage in social interaction. Other times its because they are dealing with a recent break up or feeling "stuck" in an area of their life and are struggling to understand why.
My role is to work collaboratively with you in order to help clarify issues, set goals, gain insight and understanding, and create more effective and satisfying methods of moving forward in your life. Together we will identity and explore how social, familial, psychological, emotional, financial, and other such factors are affecting your overall health and well being.
