My Approach to Helping
I love to inspire people to hope for a better tomorrow and empower them to make necessary changes for a brighter future. Every day I am amazed by the resilience of the human spirit as I sit with people and help them through each difficulty. I am a compassionate, non-judgmental therapist and I use a combination of psychotherapy and concrete therapeutic interventions. I have found this combination to be effective in getting to the root of distress while taking action to change things that are keeping an individual stuck.
More Info About My Practice
In my practice, I work often with people who are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety at various levels of intensity. I have chosen to focus my training and experience in trauma therapy and crisis intervention as I work with people who have experienced various forms of trauma, including combat trauma, trauma related to first responders, sexual abuse, domestic violence victims, emotional abuse, natural disasters. I help people recover from PTSD and Posttraumatic symptoms and I will soon be offering groups for veterans and military members and their families, as well as first responders and their families. I enjoy working with victims of domestic violence, teaching them assertiveness training and boundary management skills.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
You'll know it is time to reach out for help when you are having difficulty functioning in everyday tasks or you are struggling to find happiness and contentment every day or nearly every day. You may become easily overwhelmed and irritable and this may be causing conflict in your relationships. Psychotherapy can help by creating an awareness of the thoughts and beliefs that are perpetuating your negative feelings. A good psychotherapist can help take the correct actions to will foster hope and empower change. I believe every person who is seeking therapy has the hope and resilience necessary to make changes and just needs the right therapist to guide them toward a bright future.
