I offer compassionate, caring, and competent care in a private, confidential environment. I listen to you and take the time to thoroughly evaluate what’s on your mind, your goals, and what obstacles are preventing you from reaching your potential.
Because you are unique it is important to emphasize that “one size does not fit all” when addressing your performance anxiety or other concerns. Performance anxiety is distinctive to your life experiences that have led your chosen occupation.
I offer in-person consultations and assessments, treatment recommendations, short and long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, in addition to my uniquely designed “Focused Performance Coaching” program to those individuals who wish to learn more about their performance anxiety and develop successful strategies for dealing with it.
See below for more information on my specific service offerings.
WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Psychotherapy is a one-on-one confidential talking therapy experience that occurs between you and me—your therapist.
Psychotherapy helps you develop coping strategies for reducing anxiety, depression, dealing effectively with relationship difficulties, and coping better with every day chronic stressors. While psychotherapy examines some underlying motivations, the process generally focuses more on day-to-day concerns and provides a new perspective about problems with family, friends, or co-workers.
Psychoanalysis offers a wide-ranging theory about human nature, underlying motivations, behavior, defenses, and life long development. It is also an in-depth treatment about difficulties in relationships, work, and feelings about yourself.
Psychoanalysis stresses the importance of understanding unconscious thoughts, feelings and experiences which influence your thoughts and actions, how the past shapes the present (and may be repeated unconsciously in the present), and resolution of internal conflicts for greater self-acceptance.
FOCUSED PERFORMANCE ANXIETY COACHING
Focused Performance Anxiety Coaching is a unique series of private sessions that are designed around your specific performance stress. It is focused on identifying your strengths and engaging in problem solving strategies to lower performance anxiety.
FPAC is not psychotherapy; it is a focused series of sessions that deal specifically with your performance anxiety.
I offer informative, entertaining, and educational presentations to educators, business leaders, cultural institutions, arts organizations, social service organizations and mental health professionals, illustrating how music and mental life are relevant in understanding and dealing with a variety of social and psychological issues.
