It looks like you're interested in making a change. I know this is a difficult step, trying to select a therapist who will be right for you. I will listen to your pain, frustrations, and sit with you through your struggles. If you are experiencing social anxiety, having difficulty in your relationship, struggling with anger, or fighting addictions, I will help you by identifying certain patterns and guide you with strategies to make appropriate changes. I’ll teach you effective skills and coach you through the proper use of them so that you could finally feel heard and communicate calmly. Therapy can be brief or long-term.

Alternative therapies such as Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are quick and effective to lifting negative symptoms. TFT is an excellent form of treatment if you suffer from phobia, anxiety, OCD, and/or trauma. Also, I've authored an anger management workbook which has many tools that can be used for personal growth.

The connection between the client and therapist is vital, and thus it's okay to come for one session to assess whether you're comfortable with me. Therapy is for growth and change, and it requires someone who will listen and be supportive, yet someone who can challenge you. If therapy was to be helpful, how would your life or relationship be different?
