Cathy

We are living in difficult times and I see how people are struggling, financially, emotionally, and socially. In addition to our usual concerns like depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and economic hardship, the extra level of angst attributable to the pandemic and subsequent job- related issues makes everything so much more challenging. During my 30+ years of providing psychotherapy, I have learned that it is never too early or too late to ask for help. I have worked with clients ranging from ages 3 to 90, and worked with them individually, as couples, and in families.

My graduate and postgraduate training have included psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and structural family therapy, but the main principles that direct my work and complement my style most closely are Kohut’s self-psychology. This approach includes establishing a solid working partnership to help my clients reach their goals by listening and responding to what they say explicitly and implicitly. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you to see how I can help, and how our work together can bring you closer to your goals.
