Psychotherapy with Adults
Dr. Alter’s treatment philosophy:
- Confidentiality is absolutely protected.
- Psychotherapy involves a warm, safe, nonjudgmental relationship.
- I embrace human differences, and understand the importance of exploring issues affecting particular cultural and religious groups, as well as the LGBT community.
As a psychologist, my principle treatment modality is talk therapy. If in the course of treatment we come to a decision that medication is necessary, I have established excellent referral relationships with highly qualified psycho-pharmacologists. By working as a team, together we monitor a client’s symptoms and arrive at collaborative treatment decisions.
