The therapeutic relationship is a unique one, unlike any other. This relationship provides a safe, confidential space for you to identify and explore your pain, your blocks, where you can allow yourself to be truly seen and heard. I am able to provide an objective, clinically trained, and compassionate perspective to help you work towards solutions and clarity. Whether you are in need of short-term, focused support, or are more interested in diving into long term, dynamic work, I am able to tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs.
Sometimes we just cannot hear one another; we might be speaking two different languages. While the anger, pain, fear, and sadness might all be valid, expressing these emotions in an effective way takes work. If you and your partner find yourselves at an impasse, this is where we can get to the root of the issue and work towards resolution.
I have always valued and enjoyed collaborating with other medical and mental health professionals. Regarding the complexities of pain management, I am able to provide psychological evaluations for individuals in various stages of their treatment working with a multidisciplinary team. Psychological treatment might be warranted either before, during, or after medical interventions and navigating the dynamic between pain and mood is crucial throughout this process. Gathering critical information around substance use history, one’s communication style, and determining cognitive or behavioral barriers to treatment is all part of taking a biopsychocial approach to pain management. I am able to provide short-term focused solutions to increase one’s self-management of pain and grow one’s skillset of pain coping resources.
Additionally, I am available to companies and organizations, including writers and producers in the entertainment industry, to provide educational services around navigating psychological dynamics in the workplace and depicting mental health issues in television and film.
