I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

I am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

My ideal client is one who is interested in finding happiness in love, work and community. My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

MY APPROACH TO HELPING: I see life as a journey. Sometimes we get in a rut and have difficulty getting out, or sometimes we think we are on the right road and things turn out differently than expected, leaving us devastated and not knowing how or what to change. At times, we are unaware of our repeated patterns or how early life experiences have affected us. We usually do the best we can with what skills we have at the time. Sometimes, we have to change our skill set and develop strategies and skills that will help us be happier and more functional people. Life is a journey, one step at a time.

I work with couples and individuals and support issues including, relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, etc. I have found the most effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

Sometimes our families, friends, or coworkers don't feel like a safe place to turn. My desire is to provide a space for understanding, healing, and hope so that you can begin to experience more fully, who you are and the beauty of your story.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

*** Now accepting BCBS and MedCost *** Life transitions often disrupt our sense of safety. It is normal to feel disconnected from ourselves and others during these periods. In them, we can lose touch with our ability to be happy, fulfilled, and well. Our sense of self and identity fades and we lose our capacity for intimacy. I can help you grow through these transformative times, identify what is most important for you in your life, reconnect and thrive.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in 28779 can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in 28779 or for a 28779 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 28779 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
