You have the ability to make positive changes in your life! I can help you learn to: * empower yourself, * develop appropriate boundaries, * cultivate and define your sense of self as a separate and distinct individual, * establish a new pattern of positivity, and * grow into a healthier person. I work one-on-one with individual adults. The treatment approaches I use to help you achieve your goals are cognitive-behavioral therapy and extended family systems therapy.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the fact that how you THINK determines how you FEEL, and how you feel determines how you BEHAVE. Extended family systems therapy looks for patterns of dysfunction in previous generations that you may be repeating in your generation.

I help individual adults with a broad range of issues related to relationships and life transitions, while striving to treat you with respect, dignity, and compassion. I like to add in sprinkles of humor when appropriate. I can help you with: RELATIONSHIP ISSUES, FAMILY OF ORIGIN ISSUES, LIFE TRANSITIONS, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, GRIEF, and TRAUMA.
