My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with depression? Needing couples therapy? Wrestling with anxiety or panic? Can't find the career that's right for you? Still single and wanting a partner? Repeating the same problems in relationships? Caught in an addiction? Confused about your sexuality? I can help you work through these and many other problems. You may feel alone in your struggles. We all need help in life. You deserve to get what you want. We will set clear goals that are outlined and committed to. You can set weekly behavioral changes to move forward. Cognitively there is a focus on understanding your dysfunctional core beliefs and how to correct them, as well as your existing strengths and how to broaden them. You will get the caring, commitment, understanding, and guidance you need to achieve your goals. I've seen people achieve their greatest dreams while working with me in therapy.
More Info About My Practice
I utilize different modalities: Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Self-Compassion Work, Inner Child Work, Gestalt Therapy, Certified Strategic Interventionist Life Coach, and Psychodynamic Therapy. Group work is also available. Groups can be an important part of repairing psychological wounds that are a result of family of origin trauma. The group acts as a "functional family" in which the unmet needs from the family of origin are met through the group relationships. In this way repeated dysfunctional patterns are broken and we can move out of stuck patterns. Imago Couples Therapy is available for couples. Imago Therapy is focused on healing unconscious defense mechanisms that result in repeated attack / defend cycles in relationships, helping the couples achieve the intimacy, love, and cooperation they crave.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
The purpose of therapy is to help you heal unconscious blocks that are preventing you from getting what you want and feeling the way you want to feel about your life. We are often unable to heal these issues without someone to help us. It is an act of courage to enter therapy and ask for that help. Without help we are often left repeating old, dysfunctional patterns that leave us in the same problems. When choosing a therapist it is usually important that you get a sense that the therapist understands your issues, has had experience in dealing with others with similar challenges, and has training in dealing with the problems you are faced with.
