I am a clinical psychologist working with adults and adolescents (from the age of 12 on) in individual psychotherapy.
Issues addressed in treatment are wide ranging. Some with which I commonly work include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and relationship problems.
I also consult with parents of children of all ages focusing on parenting issues. By training, I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist: I understand our actions, thoughts and feelings as being governed by our environment, our relationships, and also by psychological dynamics that we have internalized starting as early as our childhood. These dynamics color and at times shape our relationships and our experiences.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a means to change these dynamics when they have led to maladaptive patterns. It is also a means to understand and reduce anxiety, depression and other symptoms, and to improve the quality of one’s life.
I also draw, when needed, on other theoretical approaches in order to provide practical strategies to deal with the management of symptoms and relational issues.
