Dr. Alterescu offers psychotherapy for children, teens, and adults. The approach taken is one of patient empowerment. Dr. Alterescu will guide each patient to enact change in their life by providing a warm, safe, and supportive space and specific techniques to help each patient achieve his goals. She also believes that neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change based on the everyday activities a person is exposed to affects social/emotional development. Dr. Alterescu’s approach is guided by principles of humanistic psychology but she also uses different techniques tailored to/based on the needs of each individual, drawing from behavioral therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as psychodynamic psychotherapy.
