Based on having operated for most of 2018 at what is essentially my capacity for seeing clients, I made the decision to discontinue my Psychology Today posting. Therefore you may no longer see that link on this page or find me there through a new search. I wanted to post this information to provide clarity that I remain in practice and consider taking new clients as they come forward. Most everything from that former posting remains accurate: I work with adults (individuals) on a range of issues, offer a sliding scale, and see clients on Saturdays (actually, only Saturdays).
Here are a few other excepts from that post that I placed there to describe what I offer:
mysaturdaytherapist.com asks: Is stress from work or relationships causing you distress? Is worry, anxiety, or depression getting worse not better? Is your confidence suffering or you’re feeling stuck? Putting your change and coping strategies into focus can help build positive movement, contribute to a sense of progress, and may improve your energy and self esteem. This can be especially helpful during important life transitions, when we’re not where we expected to be, or when it feels like we’re falling further and further behind. So . . . Saturday suit you?
At mysaturdaytherapist.com, I use an integrative approach grounded in Mindful Presence (see mindfulpresence.com for more). My hope is to develop a safe and comfortable space for you to feel heard and understood so together we can discover and help you do what’s best for you and your success.
Saturday Only? That’s right! Maybe you’re a busy professional, or Saturday is your time to engage reflectively and invest some energy into self-care. My standard appointments are 60 minutes so you have time to share your concerns without feeling rushed and allow your creative process to fully engage.
Specialities include Stress, Life Transitions, and Coping Skills.
Among Treatment Approaches, I draw from the following among others:
- Client-Directed Outcome-Informed Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
- Culturally Sensitive
- Mindful Presence in Psychotherapy (TM)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Positive Psychology
- Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
- Relationship-Centered, Learning-Focused
- Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
