My Approach to Helping
My private practice will offer you a warm and caring place to build skills and enhance your personal growth. Therapy is a guided process of self-discovery. Whether it begins in response to a traumatic event or at a time when positive change is sought, old patterns of behavior and thinking can stand in the way of healthy communication and feelings. Therapy provides access to strengthen skills so that new and healthier thoughts, feelings and behaviors take the place of old unhealthy ones. The therapuetic approach is determined by your needs and pays attention to your strengths. The process is guided by the belief that you already possess the ability to make things better. My style is down-to-earth and emphasizes supportive listening and feedback so that you feel understood. My active involvement in the process helps toward reaching your goals. In working together, we discover the strategies that work best for you. It takes courage to reach out to a professional therapist.
Counseling services are available to individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families.
