My Approach to Helping
In my 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I\'ve found that when people seek help they\'re often at their most frustrated, sad, angry, or confused. We can feel lost, alone, and believe others can never really understand how tiring it is to act okay & always be strong when there is only pain & chaos going on inside of us. Maybe you are to the point where you just don\'t have the energy to do the things you want to do or even used to enjoy doing. You may be struggling with deep emotions or conflicts in your family, and no one else understands. Maybe the confusion and stress is so great that you don’t even know how to put it into words.
Therapy is a safe place where you can learn more about who you are, and learn the skills to get you where you want to be in life. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or significant life changes.
My approach in therapy is meeting you where you are emotionally, and assisting you in setting & achieving your goals. We will work as a team, and use your strengths to develop more constructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
My treatment modalities combine cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive, and motivational interviewing techniques, all geared toward assisting you in becoming the person you want to be. It takes courage to seek out help and work towards making changes.
If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you to make the changes you desire.
