Sybil A. Ginsburg, M.D.

Philosophy of Psychotherapy:

"I offer psychoanalytic therapy, supportive psychotherapy, counseling and medication, as suitable.  Through the establishment of a therapeutic relationship, I use my expertise as psychoanalyst and physician to help people cope with trauma and resolve the conflicts that cause emotional suffering.  The goals are to relieve symptoms such as anxiety and depression, to expand a personís ability to sustain relationships and derive gratification from them and to enhance oneís ability to work and to create."
