My Approach to Helping
Quality of life is often compromised by personal, career, and or relationship challenges and transitions. Emotional symptoms that cause depression, anger, and anxiety can accompany these problems, often outweighing an individual\\\'s ability to cope and effectively attend to daily roles and responsibilities. In psychotherapy, I provide a safe, caring, and non-judgmental environment where challenges can be addressed to create positive and lasting change. I work with clients to identify future goals, develop effective coping skills, and pursue a meaningful life informed by personal values. For many, psychotherapy is an investment in self-development that will last a lifetime.
Individuals are complex, and the underlying cause of problems is not always clear. I utilize psychological tests to understand the nature of a problem and the best way to address it. Assessments address emotional difficulties, cognitive problems related to brain functioning, achievement deficits in academic settings, and or career interests.
I also have extensive experience working in hospital settings and collaborating with hospital staff in providing comprehensive care. Services provided can include psychodiagnostic assessment, neurocognitive assessment (cognitive difficulties secondary to medical concerns), psychotherapy, and or treatment recommendations upon discharge.
