My Approach to Helping
Depression and anxiety can slow the path to operating optimally in our lives and working through feeling better can seem daunting, as if it's a task. Whether you're dealing with a current struggle or a long standing one, resolution is within reach, and I am here to help you become the best version of you. Your being here IS you taking the first step into self-care because seeking outside help isn't always so easy. Whatever issue is becoming a burden and or a barrier, I am here to support you as you take the steps to a brighter path.
Working in a direct approach, my goal is to collaborate with you as you are the expert in your life. Whatever it is that you're experiencing, know that things can change for the better. Together we'll create an environment that is safe and conducive of healing. This is your journey and I am here to walk along side you.
I also work within different theoretical modalities. We are all different and no one approach works for everyone.
More Info About My Practice
I provide individual, couples and family therapy. I work with adolescents and adults in tackling many issues. My approach is always to ensure my clients feel safe to unpack their situations, however big or small. That means that we move as fast as the client is ready for or slow it down.
I have extensive experience working with adolescents, especially those who have experienced divorce, bullying, low self esteem, chronic disease and grief.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
It is so hard to ask for help or even acknowledge that we aren't pulling from the healthiest tool box of coping. This is where therapy is helpful. I often hear that talking to friends, family or even spouses do not always provide the most emotionally satisfactory feeling we desire. How often have you heard, "you'll be OK", "get over it", "you're still upset about that??", etc. There's a lot of power in feeling understood and supported. Having a neutral, third party, does provide the depth and understanding that we seek so we can feel understood.
Therapy is also a great way to learn new coping skills and even revamp those you already have. Let's get real, change is hard and alone it is even more difficult to achieve. Make the call and let's get started.
