Types of Treatment Offered

My approach to each type of psychotherapy I offer is influenced by my training as a Jungian analyst, as well as my study of other contemporary approaches to psychoanalysis. Each type of psychotherapy addresses your concerns by incorporating the core characteristics and method of working together that I have established. When necessary, I also offer treatment with psychiatric medications to patients I am working with in psychotherapy or analysis.

Below are summaries of the types of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis I offer. I encourage you to access more detailed descriptions by clicking on the underlined headings.

Dynamic Analytic Psychotherapy

An engaging, interactive approach to addressing your concerns through an open-minded and curious examination of your personal history, unconscious beliefs and assumptions, and way of relating to others. Integration of these elements in the light of modern psychological theory will allow us to generate new ideas about how you experience yourself and relate to the world around you, and to consider changes that might be beneficial to you. read more . . .

Collaboratively Structured Analytic Psychotherapy

An innovative, intensified version of Dynamic Analytic Psychotherapy that I have developed for the highly motivated person who is seeking a comprehensive process of self-examination. This method uses focused self-evaluation methods, evocative contemplative practices, creative assignments between sessions, and regular review processes to enrich your experience and accelerate your progress. read more . . .

Jungian Analysis

A form of psychoanalysis for people who seek a deep, integrated understanding of their own psychological nature and of psychological forces active in the world. While it can be very helpful in addressing particular situations or symptoms, Jungian analysis has more ambitious aims: learning to work with your personal history and unconscious nature to bring about more authentic expression of your innate personality. Helpful in navigating the many challenges of adult life, Jungian analysis can facilitate an individualized path to a sense of greater meaning and wholeness. read more . . .

Medication Treatment (Psychopharmacology)

Many conditions respond well to psychotherapy or psychoanalysis alone, but some show a greatly improved outcome when psychiatric medications are part of the treatment. As a psychiatrist, I can help you to make an informed decision as to whether psychiatric medications may be of benefit to you, and offer you treatment with these medications as we deem appropriate. read more . . .
