My Approach to Helping
My experience, training, and education allow me to offer you a counseling experience that will remove blocks and barriers in your life and help you establish meaningful connections, starting with your connection to your true self. In regularly scheduled sessions-usually 50 minutes in length-you will work with me to identify, learn to manage, and, ultimately, overcome emotional and/or mental problems. Our discussions will reveal the basis of problems and enable you to better understand yourself and gain relief from specific issues. Psychotherapy is an active process requiring concentration, energy, and commitment by both parties. Many patients complete psychotherapy in 16 or fewer sessions, especially for behavior-specific problems. Individual psychotherapy takes place in the privacy of the therapist-patient relationship. Psychotherapy also may be conducted in the context of group, marital, or family treatment.
The majority of people who undertake psychotherapy experience significant improvement. It is also important to remember that therapy is a process between therapist and client in which we will work together to achieve your goals.
