My Approach to Helping
While a person can feel better after a good talk with a friend or relative, for moderate or severe emotional distress, this relief is only temporary. Talking with a trained listener helps alleviate emotional distress for good. As a marriage and family therapist I am trained to listen and interact in a way that helps you get to the very root of your emotional concerns.
Just as everyone needs a physician from time to time, everyone can also benefit from the help of a psychotherapist. Seeing a therapist does not indicate weakness or poor spirituality. It simply means that one is suffering from an emotional or mental problem that is common to all of us. Everyone grieves, stress gets to us, and anyone can become depressed. As with a physical problem, the longer one puts off fixing it the worse it becomes. I will provide this in a professional, confidential, and non-judgmental fashion.
