Do you feel disconnected or out of step with your family, friends and colleagues? Does it sometimes feel like no one understands or cares about you? Don't be discouraged. Your situation is not hopeless and you are not alone! I would like to help you sort things out and challenge those negative thoughts so you can have the full, rich life you deserve!

I've worked with individuals, couples and families dealing with grief, loss and other traumas. I've helped individuals identify and use their strengths to solve their problems. I use a client directed approach, meaning I engage each person in developing solutions that will work for them. Rather than thinking of you as a client, I think of you as a co-therapist.

Discovering your inner strengths and resources is an amazing journey; one we take together, at your pace, in a safe, supportive environment.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

People come into therapy for many reasons. Some need to respond to unexpected changes in their lives, while others seek self-exploration and personal growth. When coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt, doubt, anxiety, or despair, therapy can help. Therapy can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. People seeking psychotherapy are willing to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in their lives.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Generally, therapy can last anywhere from 4-8 weeks or longer. The length of therapy varies and depends on many things. For therapy to be successful you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy sessions. During sessions you talk about the primary concerns and issues in your life and set goals for treatment. A session lasts 50 minutes. Usually weekly sessions are best. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. Once treatment goals are reached, you begin the termination process. This consists of reviewing progress, coping skills learned, and identifying things to look out for to prevent a relapse of unwanted behaviors.
