Psychological discomfort signals an imbalance in one’s life. Our family of origin, current relationships with our selves and others, personality, relationship with substances, as well as work, genetics, medical conditions, and (sometimes) spiritual life are important variables that impact upon our psychological health.
As a clinical psychologist, I am skilled in psychological evaluation and treatment. I have many years of experience helping clients cope with and resolve discomfort. Rather than utilizing one particular theory/approach to psychotherapy with all clients, I choose the therapeutic approaches that have demonstrated effectiveness in resolving your particular problems. For example, I may lean toward an Object Relations approach to help you re-work your unsatisfactory internalized relationships. Or I may lean toward a Cognitive Behavioral approach to help you learn to improve your mood by evaluating and modifying your underlying convictions. I may recommend you bring in your partner for couples work or your family to use the entire family system to help you. The selected approach depends on the unique context and variables you bring with you.
