My Therapy Practice
I’ve been a practicing therapist long enough to know that one style doesn’t fit everyone, and that what fits today, may not fit next week. While my style molds to people’s needs, my
theoretical base is consistent, having evolved over the past three and a half decades. In the late 1960s, I was trained psychodynamically yet, I was drawn to the newly developing field of family therapy, and then have absorbed many aspects of the newer modalities, such as gestalt, cognitive, and behavioral therapies.
The goal of therapy – for individuals, couples, or families – is to combine an understanding of the basis for the problem with specific behavioral change. To that end, sessions often end with "homework" assignments.
Here are some of the types of therapy I offer:
- Families and couples
- Gender issue, changing roles, and mid-life issues
- Couples where the man has a high powered position
- Women's friendships
- Single women
- Adult siblings
- Attention Deficit Disorder (for adults and children)
- Child & adolescent
- Group therapy for men, women, children
