My Approach to Helping

We don't just take notes and mutter, "I see." Your sessions are based on you, filled with the exchange of ideas and solutions, along with a listening ear.

Inside our office, you'll find a warm environment where you feel comfortable expressing yourself. After your visits, you'll have a greater understanding of your situation, more motivation to use new coping skills and techniques, along with continued support to improve specific areas of your life. You may even go about your day with a little spring in your step, too!

Read what others have to say about our approach to helping you succeed:

"The counseling I received from you has been a very positive life-changing experience for me. I don't like having OCD but it is no longer consuming my life and I really feel like I have made such great progress in squashing it without using medication. I can't thank you enough."

"I really liked my therapist's personality and style. Each session was a comfortable blend of enthusiasm, empathy, humor, and practicality."

"I found the homework exercises to be very helpful to me. I've been able to use techniques I have learned from those exercises to slow down my thoughts when problems arise and work through whatever the issue may be, OCD or otherwise."
