Mental Health Services
LCSW-R, MS, DCSW
Life can be full of surprises, with many unexpected ups and downs. Sometimes relationships, career, and life in general do not unfold as expected.
With the announcement of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, isolation, anxiety and depressed mood can easily increase, so mental health services are needed now more than ever.
One solution is psychotherapy. Using different therapeutic modalities, psychological services have helped many understand and work through the emotional roadblocks that can cause struggle and get in the way of leading a full and rewarding life, such as diverse forms of anxiety and depressive moods. Psychological sessions will help you improve your social, relational, interpersonal, and occupational functioning.
How does psychotherapy work? An essential feature of this approach is that a person and the therapist develop a unique and trusting relationship. In this safe, non-judgmental environment, a person's difficulties are discussed, and we explore attendant problems, history, relationships and goals. Sessions for individuals, couples, and families are offered, and virtual sessions from the comfort of your own home can be arranged.
Virtual online sessions accepted.
During and after completion of psychodynamic treatment sessions, the person should, overall, learn to manage difficulties in a more adaptive manner; experience improved interpersonal relationships and productivity at work; and develop new insights about his or her thoughts, feelings and behavior.
