Psychological Therapy

I am trained in both brief and long-term therapies. My main interest is in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, however, I also work from an integrative framework and combine mindfulness, cognitive-behavioural, and applied behavioural approaches. I provide such time-limited and symptom-focused integrative treatment for people who wish to get a better control of their symptoms and whose visits are covered solely by Medicare. I provides long-term and insight-oriented psychoanalytic psychotherapy for individuals who want to achieve a deeper self-understanding. Typically psychoanalytic therapy is a long-term and open-ended treatment.
 
My therapy approach: People’s experiences and understanding of their adult life relationships are shaped by their infancy and early family environment. Early life experiences and models of relationships contribute, at least in part, to different emotional and relational concerns people experience later in life. My approach tailors treatment to each patient, helps them develop a deeper understanding of their relational patterns, and assists them in changing those patterns.
