Psychodynamic Therapy

It is a form of counseling, where the primary focus is to reveal the unconscious content of your psyche in an effort to alleviate psychic tension. In this way, it is similar to psychoanalysis, but psychodynamic therapy tends to be briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis. As an insight oriented therapist I will focus on the following core principles

  • An emphasis on your development

  • How to cope with conflict

  • How your past has meaning for today

  • How to regain trust in yourself and those around you

DOT-SAP Assessment

The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations require that all employees of regulated companies who have a non-negative drug and/or alcohol test be evaluated by a substance abuse professional (SAP). No employee may return to a safety sensitive position without clearance by the SAP. Even terminated employees must be referred to a SAP.

In order to be returned to safety-sensitive duties or to reapply for any future DOT regulated positions, you must provide your employer or future potential employers with documentation that you successfully completed the DOT Substance Abuse Professional assessment, the recommended education or treatment program, and a return evaluation.

As a Certified DOT-SAP Professional I will

  • Conduct the DOT-SAP formal evaluation

  • Refer you to the appropriate level of care

  • Monitor your treatment progress

  • Document compliance to meet federal guidelines so that you can return to work
