Psychotherapy is a careful and slow process and it is important to know everything about the patient not just their symptoms. I want to know your strengths and vulnerabilities so that I can understand the problems you are struggling with and to see if these might be repetitive patterns from the past that can be changed once they are recognized and understood. It is important to talk about your feelings in treatment and not act on them. It is important to me to understand why you wish to stop treatment at a particular time since this can often be an indication of our getting close to some sensitive issue that is often vital to talk about in order to bring about recovery. Sometimes psychotherapy takes time . . a lot of time. Sometimes patients are looking for a 'quick fix' with medication but I am interested in working with you on deeper long term changes that will help in your recovery and allow you to live your life more fully. My approach in therapy is psychodynamic which means I attempt to look with you at deeper meanings and patterns for the symptoms and behaviors that are causing you stress or difficulties in your relationship or occupation. I am here to help you recognize and identify those patterns so that you can have some hope of possibly changing them or accepting and compensating for them in other ways. Recognition and understanding are the first steps toward change.
