Announcement icon Sessions are currently being managed through our Simple Practice telehealth system. Sessions remain private and confidential.
I offer clients a supportive, caring environment to identify solutions for growth and well-being. Together we can identify specific problems and create common sense strategies that have high probabilities of success. The areas often discussed in therapy include relationships, substance abuse, career frustrations, illness and life transitions, and one's own experience of psychological symptoms, most commonly anxiety and depression. By approaching psychotherapy through a person-centered, solution-focused, skills based perspective, I can assist individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Our common goal is to create a path toward a quality of life that increases a sense of happiness. I utilize worksheets and handouts to arm clients with practical evidenced based skills to support change efforts. My practice incorporates a variety of theoretical orientations; primary are Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Individual sessions encourage the development of trust and skills to cope with life stressors and emotional dysregulation, to help create a life worth living.. Couple's sessions are structured using the principles that help couples learn to emotionally connect and communicate effectively..
