My Approach to Helping
Do you want relief from the symptoms of depression or anxiety? Have you experienced the loss of a loved one through divorce, death or for other reasons? Are you wanting to know how to create healthier, more fulfilling relationships? Do you need couples counseling? Do you want to learn how to communicate more effectively with those around you? Would you like a better relationship with yourself?
I have helped many people with these and other issues and I may be able to help you too. I maintain a nonjudgmental environment of safety, support and acceptance for you. When you know that you are accepted just as you are, you feel freer to be yourself. Within that context, your awareness of who you are and what you are working with can grow by leaps and bounds. As your awareness and wisdom grow, you can use what you have learned to resolve the issues facing you now. Feel free to call me for a free 30 minute consultation or to schedule an appointment.
More Info About My Practice
I want to acknowledge you for considering reaching out for assistance at this time in your life. Perhaps you have realized that you have gone from having a "problem" to the "problem" having you. Maybe it is hard to see a way out right now. As your counselor, I can help you see your way clear as you work your way through what is happening for you at this time.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
I take a practical, open-ended approach to the Therapy Process. Fact is, the "proof is in the pudding." I suggest you lean into it. You are going to know early on if what we do together is actually working for you or not. I have had people come to me very skeptical of Therapy. I welcome the skepticism. In fact, you can use skepticism to your advantage when you use it as a way to validate your experience as helpful or not.
What Makes up a Problem?
Problems tend to show up in the areas where we are lacking in awareness. You may find that as your awareness grows, your problems shrink. Awareness is your anecdote to the problem. I use my skills as a therapist to help you gain the awareness that you need to overcome whatever challenge you are facing. Once you have gained the awareness and have applied what you have learned to the problem, you won't need me any longer.
