When there is a will there is a way. I believe everyone is capable of living a fulfilling life. My approach is to work with strengths and learn ways to manage or remove barriers by utilizing internal and external resources. By learning to be more connected emotionally, physically, and cognitively we can become a whole person. Change can be scary. Going to a therapist can be scary. My goal is to help you establish the tools that you need to face the things that get in the way of change and overcome the fears. Each person is an individual with a unique background, experiences and way of looking at the world. I don't believe in using a cookie-cutter approach. Even though I have a diverse background of knowledge in the mind-body connection, neurobiology, family systems, attachment theory, DBT, CBT and many other modalities, I look at things holistically and only use the methods that I feel will be most useful with each individual, couple and family that I work with. If coming to see a therapist is not helping you as a client meet your goals and is not helping you to improve your quality of life, then it's not worth your time or mine. If you're ready to get started on the next chapter of your life, give me a call.
