More Info About My Practice

Therapy is structured uniquely to to benefit the needs and goals of each client. Within my practice I work with individuals, couples and families. Topics in individual therapy include depression and anxiety, growth, self-awareness, anger management, and stress management.  Couples work often centers on communication, conflict resolution, and emotional and physical intimacy.  Common topics that I have addressed with families include conflict between siblings, ways to improve communication skills, boundary setting, life-transitions, and developing strategies to resolve specific challenges.  

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to my private practice experience, I also provided group and individual counseling in middle and elementary schools. In this role, I helped students develop social skills, deal with loss and grief, tackle anger management skills, and develop strong communication skills.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual/s and therapist. Psychotherapy can help you cope with feelings and symptoms, and change behavior patterns that may contribute to ongoing problems. You might be encouraged to look at things in a different way or learn new ways to react to events or people. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who's objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental.
