My Approach to Helping

There are are several myths about therapy that keep people from obtaining the support that they need.
These myths include: Therapy is for "crazy" people,
getting therapy means I am weak,
the therapist will judge me etc.

To combat those myths I like to explain to people, your brain, and your heart are physical parts of your body like anything else. That said brain and heart pain are normal issues for anyone to have no matter race, gender, religious background, tolerance to pain, weak, strong, or the like.

My goal is to assist you with understanding and identifying the root of your current concerns. Often times we are not aware that our past experiences attribute to our current difficulties. Even in current situations, our problem has a root. My goal is to assist you in identifying the situations, which contributed to your current beliefs about yourself, the world, and others. We will then identify how your beliefs affect your thoughts, mood, and emotions. This type of therapy is known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT.

We will develop an individualized treatment plan together, and identify short-term goals you can take home and focus on between sessions. The goal of therapy is to help you see hope, feel supported, and know how to get to your future in practical ways each session. Everyone who attends therapy does not have a diagnosis. However, if a diagnostic evaluation is necessary I am careful to be thorough and take time to assess before concluding a diagnosis.

I specialize in working with adults, children, adolescents, teens, families, couples, and other significant relationships.
