I’ve been providing individual psychotherapy (also referred to as “talk therapy”) for over 15 years through collaborative, personalized individual sessions. Sessions typically are 50 minutes and occur in-person in my ofﬁces in Pennsylvania and Washington DC. When needed, they may also take place through distance counseling (sometimes referred to as “tele-mental health”) via telephone or videoconferencing.
Approaches used vary by client and presenting issue(s). Treatment often involves some or all of the following therapies:
- Using cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT or cbt, I work with clients to help them develop healthier thought patterns, emotional processing, and behaviors.
- For those seeking to increase self-understanding and to break conditioned patterns that are no longer working for them, I introduce elements of psychodynamic therapy.
- Existential therapy is implemented to help people seeking to ﬁgure out who they are, what they’re about, and how to answer life’s challenging questions.
- Finally, mindfulness training, skills enhancement, goal setting, and interpersonal development are taught in conjunction with the above therapies.
Clinical skills are a vital ingredient in successful therapy. So is a trusting, caring, and committed relationship between therapist and client. This makes ﬁnding a therapist with whom you have a good ﬁt, a positive personal connection, critical.
I encourage anyone seeking Individual Treatment to meet with a prospective therapist for an initial evaluation. At this time, you can determine if you’re on the same page in terms of approach and if there’s rapport between you.
