Individual therapy involves an initial phase of identifying a client’s concerns, clarifying how I can help, and talking about how therapy with me typically proceeds. My therapeutic approach is flexible. Trust, optimism, and actual skills are developed that allow clients to explore new ways to realize personal and interpersonal fulfillment.
I strive to create an environment that encourages clients to talk to me about anything. Goals and outcomes are continually clarified and, if necessary, revised. Doing so ensure that clients’ stated needs and ‘presenting problems’ remain the focus of each session. My approach to psychotherapy encourages an active exploration of the influences of ethnicity, race, and culture.
Individual therapy sessions last 55 minutes and the fee is $250-$300. I offer a free brief telephone consultation to prospective clients.
