    Adults come to therapy for different reasons.  They may be having trouble with emotions such as anger, sadness, or anxiety.  They may wish for more fulfillment in areas such as work and relationships. They may be engaging in behaviors they would like to change.  Sometimes, people are going through a difficult life event, such as a traumatic experience, death, divorce, or medical illness.  At other times, they are adjusting to changes in their personal or professional lives.

    When you see me for psychotherapy, we will start with a comprehensive assessment, in which we work together to develop a detailed formulation of the problems.  I will then provide you with individualized treatment recommendations. Therapeutic treatment involves three broad categories, which are tailored for the particular person: (1) improving self-awareness; (2)  improving abilities to cope with internal and external challenges; and (3) developing healthy selfhood and relationships.
