Individual Therapy

Decades of research supports the effectiveness of psychotherapy in reducing feelings of depression and anxiety, helping people get along better with their loved ones and becoming more self-accepting.

The scientific community generally does not question the effectiveness of psychotherapy. Instead, current research is focusing on ways to make it increasingly tailored to treat specific difficulties or populations. Competent psychotherapy has a well thought-out plan and achievable goals and is much more than being asked "feelings" questions about uncomfortable topics.

For many young adults the transition to college or graduate school can be quite overwhelming, particularly when there have been long-standing difficulties with social interaction. This can lead to feelings of loneliness, depression, and/or anxiety among others. In our work together I focus on the use of cognitive-behavioral techniques, as well as other forms of talk therapy, to help reduce negative feelings and teach appropriate coping and social skills that you need to lead your life the way you want to.
