Using a compassionate, nonjudgemental, and interactive style, I will help you to identify and overcome emotional and behavioral problems. I will work with you to understand why you may unknowingly be repeating frustrating patterns of behavior that interfere with your ability to reach your desired goals. I believe in helping you reach your goals by building confidence, helping you to regain or develop a sense of purpose, and to communicate more effectively.
I use a supportive and insight oriented approach that draws upon a variety of treatment methods. These methods are tailored to match your particular needs. Together, we will work on overcoming the negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are interfering with your happiness.
I consider myself a relationship expert. I have extensive experience helping people understand the negative patterns that keep them stuck in a cycle of anger, frustration, sadness and fear. In addition, I can help people learn how to connect with others and form healthy and rewarding relationships.
