I will work at building an effective therapeutic relationship with you. We will work together to identify goals and build on your assets to work through your concerns. When conducting sessions I work with my clients to identify thought patterns to undo the irrational beliefs and behaviors which contribute to the presenting problems. I work from an eclectic view point, using effective and individualized interventions. My personality is welcoming and approachable, I want to make you comfortable in this process. Let's begin this journey together!
- Anxiety, Depression, Divorce, Parenting, Relationships, Sexual Abuse, Stress
People are scared. They are in pain. They've lost a job. They've gotten a diagnosis. They've lost a loved one. Their partner is hurting them. They feel lost or powerless to improve. They're concerned about their kids. It can feel like it's just too much. I help people identify those core causes of distress to deepen understanding of thoughts, behaviors, and emotions in order to develop practical solutions. Clients range from adolescents to adults and groups who may present anything from depression and substance issues to domestic violence issues, PTSD, body dysmorphia, adjustment disorders, addiction, ADHD, bi-polar issues, grief or anxiety. Sometimes it helps to think of me as your emotional personal trainer, your confidant, your witness, your change agent. Just the mere act of collaborating on your concerns increases the potential to change them. As such, we explore the broken parts of your life where you feel haunted by anxiety, depression, low self esteem, relationship challenges, substance abuse issues, feeling meaningless, etc. The goal is to identify and manage your sources of pain with mindfulness and intentional balance to gain more stability and strength. My unconditional positive regard for you is enthusiastic, compassionate and respectful. Regardless of your situation, demographic or issues, our goal is not necessarily to fight those waves you're experiencing, but learn how to ride them out. So while life can sometimes be too much, now you have a safe, confidential place you can visit and figure stuff out. This is where we roll up our sleeves and get to work empowering your progress towards a healthier mental state.
