I have provided Psychotherapy and Clinical Mental Health services in the Finger Lakes region for more than forty years. My approach is Humanistic and dynamically Interpersonal- Relational.
In all, fostering awareness and compassion for self and others.
Relational-Interpersonal Psychotherapy is a non-authoritarian, and collaborative way of being in resolving conflicts, whether this is a clinical mental health matter or issues within the context of ones relationship. Relationships and their patterns are complex. and solutions often lay hidden from clear view. The Interpersonal-Relational Approach to Psychotherapy seeks to resolve conflict by the appreciation of strengths, needs, values and, the heightened awareness for self and others. Thus, moving forward and living a purposeful life.
Many find this approach to therapy useful for a host of mental health and relational concerns. Collaboration with medical management is frequently effective as well.
