My Approach to Helping
We all get overwhelmed. New challenges can emerge, coping skills cease working, and new skills need developing. Therapy can help light the way. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, panic, depression, or everyday life becoming unmanageable, therapy can provide you with the tools to cope. I want to be there to support you during this process. Successful therapy starts with the formation of the counselor-client bond. Therapy is a relationship where a private, supportive, and non-judgmental alliance is fostered. Psychic injuries, biological dispositions, familial experiences, and successful life experiences shape our present.
The past effects how we relate to others and why we carry wounds into the present. New and old life events can lead to self-destructive coping. Therapy can heal wounds and impart insight. Symptoms and diagnosis need not define us. We can learn to appreciate life’s joy and successes. Call for a no fee phone consultation and start the journey.
I practice an integrative approach to counseling informed by Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I specialize in the treatment of depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders. Other areas of concentration include improving self esteem, increasing assertiveness, improving interpersonal relationships, and managing life transitions.
