*** Accepting Referrals for DBT Group; I have a waitlist for Testing services (ages 5+) and Individual Therapy Services (Adults only at this time)*** Modern life presents a number of challenges for adults and families. It can be difficult to balance all of the conflicting demands, especially if we are also trying to care for others or carrying the weight of past traumas or other unresolved issues. This can lead to increasing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and anger, and can interfere with the relationships we value and need. None of us are perfect, but we all deserve the chance to live a life consistent with our values and goals.
I offer psychological evaluation services as well as therapy services. I utilize cutting-edge tools, research, and treatment models to help my clients gain a better understanding of their problems and how to achieve their goals. For therapy clients, I strive to help my clients live a life consistent with those goals.
Change is hard. But so is staying the same when you are suffering. Often, we get stuck focusing on the roadblocks to change. I view my job as helping my clients sort through all of those pieces to clarify the path they want to take and the life they want to live. Only you can define what you want, but I will use all of my skills to help you get there.
