My Philosophy

My approach is client-centered; that is, you define your goals and together we will work to move you toward them.  We may begin by identifying patterns in your life that are keeping you "stuck."  These patterns may be ones of thought, belief, communication, or behavior.  Once we identify those, we will begin to create new, more effective patterns.

Ineffective life patterns come about for all sorts of reasons, usually because they worked at one time, or served a good purpose.  It is important to realize that our early experiences and the family we grew up in are woven into the fabric of our lives.  They are part of who we are.  Acknowledging our past can bring us great insight into our current situations.  However, insight is only part of the solution.  In session, we will focus on the present, bringing you ideas for positive change for your life right now.

Many clients ask me my views about medication and therapy.  I believe that medication can be a helpful tool in recovery from anxiety or depression, although not necessarily imperative.  The following letter I wrote was published in the New York Times and gives a good "snapshot," illustrating my views on the subject.
