My Approach to Helping
There may be times when we experience difficulty and the way we usually cope just isn't enough. Have you had a challenging time managing depression, anxiety, stress andor other concerns? I care deeply about helping others, and my empathy makes me an effective therapist. I value clients feeling comfortable during therapy sessions so they'll share and work on even the most difficult issues. Let me help you find lasting happiness and improve the quality of your life. In-person therapy and video therapy sessions are available.
More Info About My Practice
I've been providing counseling and advocacy since 2003 to help individuals, couples, and families achieve their goals and feel better. As we begin our therapy sessions, we'll develop a treatment plan with concrete objectives and a timeline to track progress and outcomes.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
In therapy with me, you'll have a trained professional who is caring, empathetic, skilled and will empower you to achieve your goals. There's no getting around it: Therapy can be hard work. You're facing difficult issues that have troubled you for some time, but working on them leads to insight, builds skills to better cope, and ultimately results in an improvement in your mental health.
My Guiding Ethical Principles
Some principals that guide my work with clients include ethics, integrity, empathy, respect (Worth and dignity of the person), confidentiality and privacy, self-determination, and expertise (Continuing education and training). These lead to my effectiveness as a therapist through the treatment modalities that I utilize.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Sometimes you may feel that asking for help means you're weak. Actually, it's the exact opposite: You're strong. I know that may sound weird because the reason you want to go to therapy is that you're having a difficult time with some things that you haven't been able to manage, but when you ask for help, you're facing these issues, and that takes strength.
