More Info About My Practice
My approach to therapy is to begin by creating a strong, healthy therapeutic relationship. Personal and relational goals are best reached when working within a healthy and safe therapeutic alliance. Within our work together, I aim to collaborate with you on your goals for treatment and work towards accomplishing them in a realistic time frame within a supportive therapy environment. I hope that, in the process of achieving your goals, you will learn about yourself in a manner that enhances your self worth, your relationships, and general well-being.
I also specialize in facilitating therapy groups. Group therapy may help you achieve your personal goals by: 1) Offering a space for support, understanding, validation, and accountability; 2) Encouraging practice of anxiety andor depression management skills; 3) Emphasizing honest, genuine communication; 4) Providing opportunity for interpersonal exploration and growth; 5) Encouraging the building of trusting relationships. Contact Dr. Lyz for a free pre-group consultation to determine if group therapy might be right for you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can help "get the ball rolling". Whether you have specific goals that you wish to address or you are unsure of the reason you're thinking about therapy...you're in the right spot! I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. We all experience stress and anxiety which makes life uncomfortable, even painful. Psychotherapy is all-too-often a "last resort" type of treatment and, while it is helpful in times of distress and crisis, few people realize the added benefits that psychotherapy offers as a "preventative" and "maintenance-oriented" approach. In psychotherapy with me, we discuss how to set and achieve manageable goals. I use a collaborative approach that focuses on present moment experiences, using personal history as a backdrop to discover patterns of behaviors and relating style. As a process, psychotherapy becomes a journey, by which you can encounter healing as well as personal growth.
