I see people in individual therapy in a variety of modalities.  This may include short term, long term, once a week or several times a week.  All of these choices are based on client needs and circumstances.  I work with older teens, and adults of all ages.  I do not prescribe medication but have psychiatric consultants available to make medication referrals.

Individual sessions last 45 minutes and are generally scheduled on a regular basis so that the time can always be available. 

My approach is psychodynamic, integrating understanding of the client's history with the present situation.  I am active and share feedback and try to ask questions that will help the client come to their own understanding and interpretations.
