I have been a psychotherapist for over 30 years. Most of my work has been with young adults who are anxious, depressed and/or have experienced trauma. I have also worked for almost 25 years with adult children of aging parents.
I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):
Eating Disorders/Body Image Distortions
Issues related to caring for aging parents
Issues related to being a parent of a child with learning/emotional/developmental challenges
From your perspective, what is therapy?
Therapy is a process, a journey, a vehicle for change. You come to therapy when you want things to be different in your life. You come to therapy because you are sad or anxious. You come because you feel lost or empty. You come because you experience problems in your relationships with family, friends or with people at work. You seek out therapy usually when you have experienced a change or disruption in your life. This change or disruption sometimes highlights things that you are unhappy with. At its best, therapy infuses us with hope, teaches us self-care and fosters resilience.
