It takes courage to seek help.
It is also a challenge to find a therapist who is a good match for your needs. The best way to find out whether we can meet your requirements is by coming in for a consultation. There is no obligation to continue and we will be happy to provide you with referrals to experienced colleagues.
We offer weekly and twice-weekly individual psychotherapy. When appropriate, we may also provide longer or double sessions. Our approach to psychotherapy combines a focus on helping you gain insight into the sources of your difficulties, becoming more emotionally aware, and making changes in your life. Our new clients often comment that they want a therapist who is not silent. While we listen carefully and attentively, we will be active and responsive in our sessions.
Couples Therapy / Marriage Counseling
We practice Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, an approach to couples and marriage therapy based on attachment theory and supported by research. Seventy to seventy-five percent of couples who complete this type of treatment recover from distress and almost 90% show significant improvement in their relationship.
Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology
We offer psychiatric consultation and medication services. If you or your therapist thinks psychiatric medication might be helpful to you, or you would like to discuss the option of medication, you may set up a psychopharmacology evaluation. This evaluation is an opportunity for the prescribing clinician to hear about your current issues and symptoms, and to assess if medication is appropriate. This visit is also a time for you to ask questions about psychiatric medication, learn about medication options, possible side effects, risks and benefits, as well as other non-pharmacological options.
We build on our expertise in Emotionally Focused Therapy and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy to support the treatment of families – in particular, the relationships between one or both parents and a child of any age, or any two or more individuals in a family context.
