The goal of psychotherapy is personal growth built on trust, honesty, respect, and care. It is not like going to a medical doctor and getting a diagnosis and medication. In psychotherapy only by talking about everything can a person find out what’s really on their minds and in their hearts. Psychotherapy helps us get a better feeling for who we are and what we want in life.

Psychotherapy is not something you believe in or not. It offers the possibility to change one’s life. Talk therapy is most effect when a person wants to find out about him or herself, despite the fact that the exploration of feelings and memories can sometimes be difficult and painful. Staying the course in psychotherapy takes personal strength.  Therapy is not self-indulgent…just the opposite.

My goal, when working with someone, is to help them find their dreams and, in the process, help them find themselves. This is the kind of therapy I bring to my practice of forty years for individuals, adolescents and couples.  When therapy is successful, it changes an individual’s  life. Although I do not work for any insurance companies, the individuals I see are entitled to out of network benefits. Psychotherapy is worth exploring if you are interested in getting to know yourself better.
