The first step to understanding the problem is finding help. Sometimes it may just be one consultation, other times you may need a Psychological Evaluation or it may be more involved and need ongoing therapy. Whichever it may be, you have taken the initial step to finding answers and solutions to your current problem.
As a psycho-dynamic therapist, my goal is to help you understand yourself and family dynamics, which have led to your current symptoms. Psycho-dynamic therapy relies on the interpersonal relationship between the client and therapist. What does this mean? The relationship between the client and therapist is very important. As a psychodynamic clinician it is very important for me to provide a safe environment where my clients will feel comfortable opening up and exploring various thoughts and feelings.
Although, I am a psychodynamic therapist I am very well aware that not all problems stem from our family dynamics and that sometimes unfortunately our genetics or other factors may play a role. Therefore, as a clinician my primary role is to listen to the entire story and get a good understanding of what is transpiring in order to develop the appropriate treatment plan, whether it may be short or long term.
A consultation will allow you to have a better understanding of what the next step will be. If it is therapy that is needed, then together we will formualte a treatment plan that suits you or your child best. If it is a psychological evaluation that is required, whether for school, medicaid waiver, court or even for your own understanding, then I will be able to provide you with a complete psychological assessment and report. I look forward to working with you and/or your family to achieve your goals.
