In psychotherapy and when I consult about medication, I strive with a direct and open style to create an empathic, collaborative atmosphere where private
experiences may be explored and better understood, with the practical goal of fostering growth and meaning, feeling better and being more successful in life endeavors.
In a first consultation we begin compiling a broad picture of your life and issues, and formulating a practical view of the problem, what approaches might help and what it might be like pursuing them. Questions about medication are part of the discussion. This is also an opportunity for you to see how you feel speaking with me and whether it seems a good fit to go forward working together.
