What People Gain From Individual Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
Individual therapy is a collaborative process between
the two of us beginning with a careful evaluation where
we identify problems and formulate a treatment plan.
The actual work can take the form of individual
psychotherapy or more intensive psychoanalysis.
Together, we strive to understand, relieve pain and facilitate change.

How People Benefit From
Group psychotherapy can be an extremely effective treatment
because it offers an opportunity to receive assistance from
both others who have had similar experiences and
a trained professional simultaneously.
Group therapy is is a special form of therapy in which a small number of people meet together under the guidance of a professionally trained therapist to help themselves and one another. The therapy has been used widely and has been a standard treatment option for more than 50 years.
Group psychotherapy provides a place where you come together with others to share problems or concerns to better understand your own situation, and to learn from each other.
Group therapy helps people learn about themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships. It addresses feelings of isolation, depression or anxiety. And it helps people make significant changes so they feel better about the quality of their lives. Additionally, group therapists can apply the principles of group to other settings and situations such as businesses, schools and community organizations.
Group works! In studies comparing group psychotherapy to individual therapy, group therapy has been shown to be as effective and sometimes even more effective. In cases of medical illness, there is substantial evidence that this form of therapy helps people cope better with their illness, enhances the quality of their lives, and, in some cases, such as breast cancer, has even been shown to help people live longer.
