My Approach to Helping
Do resentment and fear poison your relatonships ? Feel like loneliness is a life sentence? Struggle with truly expressing yourself even with those closest to you? I can help. I work well with individuals and families that are struggling with anxiety, shyness,and isolation including children who are being bullied or who suffer with Aspergers Syndrome. Clients can expect friendly, specific, and practical information and encouragement to express the thoughts and feelings they have been too afraid to communicate before. I offer weekend (Saturday and Sunday appts) and evenings.
Individuals often say that through counseling they have felt understood for the first time in their lives. They are able to find confidence to speak for themselves and to finally pursue their own hopes and dreams instead of being trapped in taking care of others. Make your appointment today!
More Info About My Practice
I am provider for most major insurance companies. I will provide a sliding scale for those without insurance for whom treatment would not be possible otherwise.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am the "shy guy's" therapist because I have been a shy guy all of my life. I understand what it means to learn that it is okay to be an introvert and the value of my personality type in being creative, thoughtful, and learning.
What Makes up a Problem?
Each person is born with a predisposition, a set of skills, attributes, characteristics. These qualities may be nurtured or suppressed by the environments you live in and the experiences you have. Granted some of these genetic attributes may lead to a lack of health- e.g. alcoholism, depression, etc.- yet there are often many more positive attributes that can be nurtured and supported to ensure optimal health and well-being.
