People often decide to see a psychiatrist because they are experiencing psychological or interpersonal pain. Because of this pain, they are unable to feel a sense of well-being or feel connected to themselves or others. Often, emotional pain results from unknown or unrecognized beliefs, conflicts, and patterns. When people are unaware of their feelings, thoughts, and actions, they may continue to engage in maladaptive ways of thinking and relating. Psychotherapy aims to help people develop a deeper awareness of themselves in order to relieve symptoms, enhance well-being, and develop a healthier relationship with the self and others.
Dr. Goldstein has experience with various types of psychotherapy that each approaches emotional pain somewhat differently. Dr. Goldstein will collaborate with each patient to determine the psychotherapeutic treatment that best suits you as an individual. Regardless of the method, Dr. Goldstein will provide a warm and safe environment where patients can find the freedom to explore themselves.
