PsychotherapyIndividual and Couples
As a therapist, Dr. Salvage offers each client the opportunity to express emotions and identify persistent challenges.
An initial consultation begins with a careful history of each patient’s life story, but more importantly involves active listening to the client’s ideals, goals and dreams. After a mutual dialogue, Dr. Salvage offers a thorough explanation of the various treatment options which are designed to have each client seek the program most congruent with their needs and life goals.
Dr. Salvage is also certified as a Imago therapist and has extensive experience working with couples to identify conflicts and enhance the quality of their relationships.
After completing his general training in psychiatry, Dr. Salvage continued to explore his fascination with human behavior by pursuing psychoanalytic training at The Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. He was awarded his diploma and official recognition as a psychoanalyst by the International Psychoanalytic Association in 2004. His articles on the psychology of creativity, gender and other topics have appeared in numerous peer-reviewed journals and been presented at several international conferences. His practice offers a variety of approaches to helping clients improve the quality of their lives. His services range from humanistic analysis, to pragmatic psychotherapies, brief dynamic psychotherapy, psychodynamically informed life coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Ericksonian hypnosis.
He has completed Level III training in the practice of EMDR and utilizes this both for the treatment of trauma, as well as for promoting relaxation and enhancing optimum life potentials. EMDR, or rapid eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, is best known for the significant results it has yielded with veterans and people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, but is also effective in other clinical contexts and often resolves therapeutic impasse.

“Prior to meeting Dr Salvage, I lived with marginal hope and very limited self-confidence. I could not envision a viable future. Dr. S carefully, skillfully, and wisely facilitated my return to a world of self-esteem and self-management….. Dr. Salvage helped give me back my life. For that, I am profoundly grateful. I recommend Dr. Salvage with the highest of praise.” –Vitals User
