My Approach to Helping
If you're frustrated by repeated arguing, devastated by infidelity or lack of trust, you can connect again. If you are longing for the confidence, closeness and communication that has disappeared in your life, counseling may be just what you need. You may know that things have to change, you just can't figure out how to get there. When I work along with you as a client, together we will identify your needs, solve conflicts, and enable a confident sense of self. During our therapy you will build insight into yourself and others. You will find new motivation and learn communication skills, and create the ability to move forward into significant changes.
I believe every problem has a solution, but figuring out where to place your effort is key. I don't believe in wasting time with reaching solutions. Solutions are available once you make the decision to begin.
I know it is important to you to solve whatever is draining away your harmony and security. Give me a call for a consultation today.
More Info About My Practice
Life is a journey. And you can turn it into an unforgettable journey into well-being. I see clients on weekends and evenings, have sliding and flexible fee scales, and am available for occasional group presentations.
Therapy is a smart investment. Rehab, divorce, and medical problems related to stress are costly, and they reduce earning potential. Investing in therapy can pay for itself several times over in creating emotional assets, preventing crisis, and preserving personal and family stability.
Since people in crisis often can't afford the cost of quality psychological help, it is my goal to keep my fees as inexpensive as possible. Several health insurers currently cover a portion of mental health care. We will be pleased to help you with your claim. Fee schedule is flexible and inexpensive.
Therapy appointments are 60 minutes long. Phone appointments for those traveling or needing after-hour attention are available. Group therapy sessions are typically 90 minutes. Fees vary. Saturday, Sunday, and evening appointments are available.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy, or Individual Counseling, can help you in a number of specific and valuable ways.
Firstly, just the opportunity to talk privately and confidentially can reduce anxiety and stress a great deal. It also enables you to think more clearly, and sort out your feelings. You'll feel less confused, overwhelmed, and alone.
With your therapist, you'll be able to get a professional perspective about what's going on, understand if you are "stuck" and explore a range of solutions and approaches.
In addition, therapy invites action, and you'll develop a workable plan, and access time-tested methods and techniques for problem solving. From the first visit, growth has already started!
Therapy tends to stabilize the emotional roller-coaster of relationships, because you begin to feel supported, understood, and under control. Self-esteem and confidence go up.
Lastly, counseling also benefits those around you. Your better communication skills, increased awareness of yourself, and greater understanding of how life works, help you relate much better to others, and help them relate better to you.
Therapy has a unique, particular structure - a combination of empathy, empowerment, and solution focus - that can offer you a life-changing, positive experience!
