My Approach to Helping

It is important to me that all people are valued and treated with compassion and respect. I feel very honored that the people I meet allow me to share in their lives--the strengths and good that they have, the difficulties, the things that are important to them, the pain, the confusion, and the journey to wellness and wholeness. The counseling process is different for each person who I see, and I encourage people to think continually about what it is that they want to develop, learn, and change. I emphasize that people are in control of their progress. I may be at times the facilitator, cheerleader, idea person, teacher, listener, and biggest fan. As we travel together on the journey, we celebrate small successes and big victories and we work through challenges to help people feel better.

More Info About My Practice

NEW! I am currently collaborating with Rebecca Wade-Rancourt, LCSW, at New Milford Counseling Center to serve pregnant and parenting Moms and Dads who are experiencing Depression, Anxiety, OCD, or other symptoms that are concerning to them. We are beginning a 4-week drop-in support group for Moms in August, 2018, and then will provide an 8-week counseling group thereafter. We each provide individual and family counseling to parents as needed. I accept most insurances, including HUSKY.

As of June 1st, 2018, I am devoting all of my time to building Capri Holistic Counseling. I have days and evenings available in my office in Danbury as well as in New Milford.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

So you are finally ready to admit that there is something in your life that is causing discomfort or getting in the way of being a happy, productive, fulfilled person. But does that mean there is something wrong with you? What if other people find out that you're not perfect? Why can't you just "Snap Out of It?" If you really stop and think about it, Life is a series of ups and downs, mountains and hills to climb, celebrations, trials and tribulations, calms followed by storms, and more celebrations. It can be difficult and painful at times, especially if we don't have all of the "tools" or positive support we need to get through the bad times. There are lots of reasons why we may not have the appropriate tools for something, but by coming to therapy, we can learn new tools, uncover and build on toolsskills we already have, and get rid of some that are not helpful. No one has all of the toolsskills they need. The difference is that you are willing to ask for help. That doesn't make you "flawed." That makes you someone who will do what it takes to succeed and be happy.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I have learned over many years that the specific techniques therapists or other helping professionals use are not as important as the alliance or relationship that can be developed between the client and the therapist. Many times, a person who is seeking the assistance of a professional has difficulty trusting others, especially new people, due to past experiences where shehe might have been hurt and disappointed. So how do you open up and let this new therapist get to know you and even learn your secrets? First, you need to be comfortable with the therapist and feel that you are being listened to and respected. Then, you might choose to open up in a burst of built up emotion that just needs release. Or, it could be a gradual experience, letting the therapist see little pieces of the truth over many sessions. You are in charge of how much you are willing to trust the therapist. Your ability to work together with the therapist, to share, to listen, to try something new, to evaluate you efforts, and to continue to participate in guiding the process, will build the alliance between you both which will help you move toward your goals.
