Do you live with excessive worry about life? Have you experienced a past trauma or hurt in a relationship that you have trouble getting past? Are you addicted to a substance, games, or pornography? I have taken the journey and helped people who have experienced the same issues as you.
I provide individual and family therapy using an eclectic approach that incorporates Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-Focused techniques, as well as Family Systems theory to help individuals and families achieve their goals.
What I love about being a Psychotherapist is having the capacity to be a holder of hope. A holder of hope is a person who can join with you in the darkest hour, in the depths of despair and can see you as whole and joyful and can hold that vision even if you cannot see it for yourself yet.
I believe therapy is more than just finding out what is "wrong with you." In my work with clients, we focus on more than mere symptom management. Rather, we co-construct therapy goals and discover lasting insight into healing and personal growth as informed by the therapeutic relationship.
I believe that addiction and other mental health syndromes are best approached like other diseases: with respect, understanding, acceptance, compassion, and competent care. I believe that we who experience such maladies are wonderful, gifted, moral, and capable people who seek meaningful lives.
It is my belief that therapy is needed, by almost everyone, at some point in their life. Having someone who is an outside, objective advocate is often the first step to greater understanding of ourselves, our concerns and our worries.
Therapy happens when you feel seen, heard, held, and understood in ways you haven't been before. I will help you slow down, inquire within, and develop the necessary changes to heal unresolved relational trauma that keep you from being who you want to be within yourself and in your relationships.
People come to therapy looking for solutions to real-world problems. My therapeutic approach is interactive, strength-based and practical. Using empathy, humor, and an objective perspective, I will collaborate with you to develop an effective, down-to-earth approach to your current life challenges.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
Welcome to my profile! I became a therapist because I wanted to help people reach the next level of insight into their thoughts, feelings, and actions. It is my hope that I will be able to help you live a more conscious and mindful life so you may become the best version of yourself possible.
