My Approach to Helping

My desire in therapy is provide a safe and supportive environment while exploring the areas in your life that you would like to change or improve. I work collaboratively with my clients, while also providing specific tools and techniques to help you begin the process of change and growth.

More Info About My Practice

Therapy is structured uniquely to to benefit the needs and goals of each client. Within my practice I work with individuals, couples and families. Topics in individual therapy include depression and anxiety, growth, self-awareness, anger management, and stress management.  Couples work often centers on communication, conflict resolution, and emotional and physical intimacy. Common topics that I have addressed with families include conflict between siblings, ways to improve communication skills, boundary setting, life-transitions, and developing strategies to resolve specific challenges.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Change is challenging to say the least! When we truly embrace and explore our current circumstances, we can then courageously change what we can to enhance our lives- be it in love, relationships, health, fitness, or work. Life is filled with joyous and painful events. Some of the greatest gifts can come through the most painful events of our lives. I am consistently amazed at the human resiliency that I see in the people that I support.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individuals and therapist. Psychotherapy can help you cope with feelings and symptoms, and change behavior patterns that may contribute to ongoing problems. You might be encouraged to look at things in a different way or learn new ways to react to events or people. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who's objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental.
