My Approach to Helping

My goal for therapy is to offer guidance, support, skills and strategies that you can use long after therapy ends. To me, therapy is more than a place to vent and have someone to talk to. I don't want you to just feel better...I want you to BE BETTER. My approach is to help the teens and adults I work with to to reflect on how they successfully managed in the past and apply those strengths to their current situation. Reflect on what is really important to them and identify their priorities and values. Build confidence, find healthier ways to cope with stress, anxiety or depression and focus on the life that they want to live and put skills into place to make that happen. Sometimes you need a professional to help you to identify the patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that have kept you stuck in your current situation. After all, you don't know what you don't know...let me teach you the skills you need to move forward.

More Info About My Practice

I use a variety of techniques with clients such as mindfulness, education about stress, encourage self-care, problem solving, evaluating thoughts, feelings andor behaviors that may be contributing to symptoms, and sometimes just working towards acceptance of situations that can't be changed. Small changes in your thinking and behavior daily lead to lasting change and a feeling of hope that you can cope with life's challenges and hardships. You can't always change what is going on in your life, but you can lean how to change how you react and think about the situation.

Openings available in Northborough on Mondays and Thursdays and Wednesdays in Bolton MA office. Contact me for more information on locations and times available.

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

Anxiety feels big and scary but when you understand what worry and anxiety wants and how it operates it is not that hard to manage. Anxiety and worry have the same predictable and redundant demands and learning how to respond when worry shows up is quite easy. My approach to helping is active, you will learn and cope through experience and you will learn tools to use to tolerate anxiety from our first meeting.
