My Approach to Helping
I am a therapist that truly believes in the power of the mind and the innate ability
that we all have to cultivate a meaningful and fulfilling life. If you are here reading this then you are likely looking for a shift in your life. Welcome and congratulations -- you’ve just taken a courageous first step. Starting therapy can be intimidating. I offer a place of warmth, kindness, compassion, and non-judgment coupled with a healthy dose of no-nonsense, reality-check accountability, where we can work collaboratively together to find the answers, the solutions and the changes you seek in improving your life.
I often hear clients use the word "stuck" to describe themselves: stuck in a pattern, stuck in a rut, stuck in a lonely place. Together, we will explore the feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that are holding you back.
Why not feel better, understand more, improve your relationships get rid of your depression and anxiety? Clients want to be unstuck, to be more conscious, to be more content and more mindful. Clarity, problem solving, finding one's authentic path, having more intimacy and being fulfilled are some of the results of therapy.
It is my intention to create a safe, non-judgmental, open and honest environment that creates space for your growth and healing.
I utilize a combination of evidence-based interventions and time-tested skills, including mindfulness and meditation, so you can engage with life challenges and stress and feel equipped to engage in a meaningful life. I am a clinical social worker (LMSW) with 28 years experience treating people with a wide variety of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, adjustment problems and life transitions. I am also a certified Hypnotherapist (CHt) and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) practitioner. Modalities I use in my practice include Insight oriented therapies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy, and
NET for mind-body issues that can potentially target a myriad of physical and physiological problems and ailments including headaches, back pain, various medical conditions, and more. By incorporating a holistic wellness approach engaging the mind, body, and spirit I am able to customize a therapeutic experience that is comfortable, meaningful and effective for you.
I offer a free consultation, either in person or by phone if interested. Why not start living your best life now? I look forward to hearing from you.
