Online Therapy

LET’S DEAL WITH IT


Most of my clients have amazing breakthroughs. They feel happy, free, resilient, courageous. They feel relieved that their past does not define them anymore.

People say I’m really good at what I do. I’m a mature therapist with a decade of experience. I’m warm and caring and at the same time, cut to the heart of things.

I offer therapy sessions online (a.k.a. “teletherapy”) and email or message-based therapeutic conversation for people in California, Colorado and outside the USA*.
* In order for me to provide therapy outside the US, the laws of the country where you reside must permit me to provide online therapy.

WHAT METHODS WILL WE USE?

You’re you. I will customize your therapy around your preferences and the approach that suits you best. I might use Trauma Reprocessing / Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction techniques; Inner Child work; guided visualizations; a variety of relationship therapy approaches such as the Psychobiological Approach to Therapy (PACT), Gottman, adult and childhood attachment theories; strengths-based; solution focused methods; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Internal Family Systems; or a somatic approach. Your therapy will be designed uniquely for you.

HOW LONG WILL WE WORK TOGETHER?

The length of time we spend in therapy / counseling is up to you. Most people begin to feel better in 4 to 10 weeks. If you are new to therapy / counseling, I like to define a chunk of work we want to complete, plan 12 sessions to get it done, re-evaluate as we go, and at the 10-week mark, start to wrap up or decide if there is more work you would like to do with me. For some issues it will take longer.

Therapy Outcomes

SUCCESS RATE

I have a very good success rate, especially with stress, anxiety and trauma, and the relationship problems as well as with occasional depression that comes with trauma.
Over the years, I have developed skills and methods that really work. I have helped hundreds of people one to one. My high success rate, in part, is due to the fact that I work well with people who have stress, anxiety and trauma.  The success is also due to the fact that people with stress, anxiety, and trauma tend to have a number of personal strengths. You may not be aware of your strengths yet.  That’s ok. I just want you to know that these issues tend to be more amenable to change.

Coping skills for COVID-19: Thought Stopping

If coping skills for COVID-19, like thought stopping, aren’t working for you, it’s not you. Coping skills are all well and good, but this pandemic is a not just a stressor, it’s a global trauma; many people are experiencing intense symptoms as a result. Coping skills for COVID-19 may not be enough.
