My Approach

Effective psychotherapy is a collaboration between therapist and patient working together to understand problems and developing a plan to resolve them.

As the therapist, it is my job to create an accepting, non-judgmental environment so that trust can be established early on in the treatment process. Therapy is tailored to meet the client’s individual needs. A treatment plan is developed that addresses specific issues and goals.

For effective treatment to occur, a therapeutic alliance must be established. Therapist and patient join together to work on the the presenting problem(s). There is a commitment by both to do the work necessary to have a successful treatment outcome.

As a psychotherapist I provide individual counseling, marriage counseling, and family counseling. Psychotherapy can assist you in becoming empowered; to deal with your issues in a positive way that can enhance your self esteem. Marriage counseling can help you develop the skills to create an intimate supportive loving relationship.

I could not have asked for a more attentive, professional therapist. Robert Bakst provided thorough feedback, and assisted me in finding a pathway to a better, brighter future.
