There are times in our lives when we feel a need to talk with someone who will listen and support us without judgment. It may be that painful issues from our pasts are surfacing and impacting our happiness and relationships, that there has been a recent change in our lives which is difficult to adjust to, or that the stress of balancing work, family, and self becomes overwhelming. We may need a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment in which to explore what is going on in our inner-selves. In these times, it helps to meet with a knowledgeable professional counselor.
I am an insight-oriented mental health therapist who practices empathy in the utilization of an integrated therapeutic approach. I combine humanistic and psychodynamic therapy with concrete action-oriented strategies, and I draw from proven theoretic conceptualization and a broad range of personal life experiences in addressing clients' concerns. This approach helps individuals dealing with long-term mental health concerns as well as difficult adjustments to recent life transitions. My clients report decreased depression and anxiety, the development of better coping strategies and more rational thought, increased self-esteem, and the ability to challenge and change self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.
Focus of practice:
Teens and adults who experience depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, trauma, grief and loss, issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity (LGBT), physical/emotional/sexual abuse, anger, difficult life transitions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and academic and career concerns.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you to explore, understand, challenge, and resolve those issues and concerns that are preventing you from achieving a more fulfilling and rewarding life.
