**PLEASE E-MAIL ME FOR FASTER TURNAROUND TIME/VM in 24 hours** Although complex, we as humans have an innate tendency to think irrationally and engage in acts of self-defeat even despite our best efforts not to. Common self-defeating behaviors that you may be struggling with include: avoidance/panic, isolation, procrastination, passive or aggressive communication, substance abuse, food, sex, or gambling addiction, and self-injury to name some. These self-defeating behaviors are linked to the unhealthy negative emotions that you may also be experiencing such as: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, hurt, envy, and jealousy.

Are you feeling depressed or anxious? Do you have relationship issues, difficulty coping with aging? People come to therapy for various reasons. I strive to individualize each person's therapy so they will feel comfortable and safe in a non-judgmental atmosphere. In my 22 years, as a therapist, I have helped many people empower themselves to become the type of person they would like to be. It is so rewarding to watch someone grow and change, and then realize all that they have accomplished.

Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.

In my practice I take a collaborative approach with adult clients. Together we seek balance, change and acceptance. These factors contribute to achievement of pleasure and fulfillment in life and relationships. My strength is that I incorporate the theory of cognitive therapy with the concept that past experiences and interactions have an influence on current beliefs and behavioral patterns. Through this approach, I am able to come to a more complete conceptualization and establish trust and rapport with my clients which enables them to engage in the therapeutic process more fully.
