Sometimes life becomes overwhelming due to trauma, increased anxiety and depressive symptoms leading us to believe there is something inherently wrong with us. We sometimes forget that we have the power to change our situation and circumstances. My goal is not to just treat the symptoms, but rather uncover the underlying root cause that triggered these symptoms and empower you to move forward in a positive direction. Treating the symptoms alone may cause the issue to present itself again.

I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship based on respect and understanding is essential to making positive change and helping individuals gain new insight, a healthier perspective or perhaps more meaning in their lives. In order for an individual to reach their full potential, it is important to uncover reasons they may be "stuck" in unhealthy relationships, addictions, poor self-image or other negative situations or behaviors. Cumulative experience has provided a deeper understanding of how dysfunctional patterns, low self esteem, mental illness and addiction can have an impact on the individual as well as those around them.

Ever feel things just need to change, stuck in bad habits, unappreciated, or you try to express yourself but never seem to get through correctly? These are a few of the issues that arise with those I see. I know change is hard, and no one likes it, but I have seen people change and know it can be done! I have an eclectic approach to therapy and work with YOUR needs to facilitate change. I also believe finding the right therapist is sometimes hard to do. My philosophy is: come in and meet me. See if I am the right fit for you!

In my 37 years of experience, I have come to believe that all of us at times in life may need some guidance and support with tough challenges or situations that cause emotional upset. However, I view these times as an opportunity to learn new strategies that can be more effective than the ones we have been using along with gaining critical insight into why we struggle in certain areas.

Are you looking for a way to release from your past and ground into the present moment? Have you tried therapy before and it hasn't helped, but something is drawing you back? Or maybe you have benefited from therapy in the past and you are ready for your next layer of healing. As a trauma focused therapist, we will assess and treat trauma first and then see if anything is left to do after that. Often, when we address the roots of trauma at the level of your physiology/body, symptoms resolve completely or if still present, stop interfering with your life and ability to experience joy and pursue purpose and passion.

What type of Newtown mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Newtown?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
