My Approach to Helping
My specialty is helping others manage difficult and overwhelming emotions - whether it be an adult, a child or a teen. People frequently express these overwhelming feelings in the form of anger, sadness or anxiety. Through the use of methods that are well-researched and evidence-based, I create customized treatment for all of my clients in order to get them to a place where they most satisfying relationships and interactions with others, like themselves more and have a more enjoyable life. If you struggle with any of these issues, I would be happy to talk further to see if we would be a good fit. I look forward to being a part of your journey towards better mental health.
More Info About My Practice
I am a licensed mental health counselor in private practice and provide weekly or bi-weekly sessions to children, adolescents, adults, and families. My office is in a comfortable setting with plenty of off street parking and is designed to be a safe space to deal with difficult issues. Each client has different needs, which is why every client's treatment will look a bit different. I would love to talk with you further about what you would like your treatment path to look like.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist, I am a change agent. What I mean by that is this - people are coming to therapy in order to make things in their lives different. Some people would like to be in a family that fights less. Others would like to feel less anxious and be able to focus on their jobs more effectively. Others might want to feel less angry and be able to express themselves to other without harming their relationships. My role is to assist in that change in the way that each client needs. Some people need to use therapy as a way to learn new or better skills or to have a place where they can start the change process without feeling judged, but supported and cheered on. As a therapist, these are the roles that I take on in order to empower my clients to make the changes that they couldn't do on their own.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
If I were choosing a therapist for myself, I would want to know the following things;
1) What style of therapy do you practice and how does that speak to my specific issues?
2) Have you been able to make meaningful progress with other clients with my main issues?
3) Will you require me to do homework assignments as a part of my therapy experience?
4) What will happen if you and I happen to not be the right fit?
I would love the opportunity to answer these questions about my practice for you.
