As your therapist, it is my goal to ensure an atmosphere of trust and understanding. My experience has taught me that change occurs within a supportive and safe relationship with a therapist whom you have a connection with. Since you are an individual with a unique set of circumstances, you and I will work together to create a change plan based on your specific needs. I utilize many different methods during the helping process. I am skilled in cognitive behavioral therapy, relationship/communication skills training, conflict resolution, insight oriented therapy, motivational interviewing, and life coaching. I systematically monitor your progress throughout our work together. One thing which separates me from other therapists is that I believe in providing support between your sessions. To accomplish this, I utilize a secure online client portal which gives you 24 hour access to many self help forms and a journal. I will provide you feedback on your journal entries within a few hours. I never leave you alone to figure things out. I also can record your entire session and upload it to your secure portal. Most clients have found that listening to their recordings between sessions has helped them gain a deeper understanding of important concepts which lead to personal growth.
