What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is the process of self-discovery through conversation. Our experiences change the way we think, feel and behave, and can become maladaptive patterns. These patterns live in the unconscious but manifest in our daily lives. Psychotherapy helps to uncover the unconscious motivations at play. By making the unconscious conscious, we can explore, examine, challenge and ultimately change the unconscious drives that keep us bound.
What is your approach?
My approach is eclectic, combining a psychodynamic foundation with a trauma-focused application. Attention will be paid to the unconscious as well as the body. The mind may be telling one story while the body tells another. Learning to listen to and regulate the body, as well as the mind, is an integral part of our work together. My sessions require honesty and in-depth personal examination and a commitment to emotional work in order to make change.
What is your rate?
My fee is $100 an hour. I accept cash, check and all major credit cards. I do not take insurance, however, I am happy to submit invoicing for out of network reimbursement. If you are seeking a therapist who takes insurance, your service provider can offer you local options. I offer a sliding scale rate for those in financial constraint on a case-by-case basis and would be happy to discuss this option if needed.
