People come to therapy because they want to feel better. It might be relationship problems or anxiety/depression, but whatever the reason, life has become uncomfortable or painful. Most people want more understanding of themselves and their situation. That being said, change is what we all seek in therapy. Making your life work better is the goal. I focus on altering self-defeating ways, gaining perspective, and increasing insight that leads to change. The result is an improved quality of life.
I have training and experience helping individuals with issues including depression, anxiety, relationship/family problems, anger management, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, PTSD, mood disorders, and adjustment disorders. I also utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy to help clients achieve rapid results with most any issue.
With compassion, humor, and understanding, I will work with you to help you build on your own strengths and attain personal change and growth. My co-therapist and Certified Therapy Dog, Taffy, may also be part of your sessions to help relax and comfort you.
