As a counselor, I believe that it is important to first establish a relationship which is built on acceptance, trust and understanding. I believe that without these traits the therapeutic process cannot take place. Therefore, it is my job to provide for you a safe place of compassion and stability so that we can successfully take this journey together.

I help clients understand and change behaviors that interfere with healthy relationships, and discuss issues that are important to developing a successful relationship .
If you are experiencing the pain of difficult personal circumstances or troubled relationships, I can offer you and/or your significant other support, guidance, and professional expertise. I help clients discover their own strengths, see their problems in a new way, and offer them practical support in their efforts to change. We look at past relationships and families of origin as a means to understanding or changing behaviors in the present. I work with individuals, couples and families, from pre-adolescence on.

I want to assist you in deepening your relationship with your emotional life.
It is my belief that as many paths to wholeness exist as were, are, or will be, people on this planet. Walking our individual paths in pursuit of meaning and purpose is a universal goal. Sometimes life presents us with vexing challenges just when we are determined to accomplish personally and or collectively valuable goals. Or our growth is impeded by painful events that happen to us during the course of living. The path & or goal becomes unclear. And so, my role in the therapeutic process is akin to a guide. Recommending, encouraging, questioning, witnessing you seek to find the best possible expression of your unique wholeness.

My foundational model of treatment is Interpersonal Relationship Therapy--an egalitarian model of therapy based on attachment styles and their impact on relationships.
Sexual Assault, Childhood Trauma, Intimate Partner Violence are as traumatic as warfare. Those who have experienced these things often battle through life, struggling to make sense of wounds that don't seem to heal even with time. There is hope! Trauma is treatable. Getting treatment can lead to a better quality of life. Most clients with PTSD no longer meet criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after two years of treatment.

Real work can bring real change. I believe all clients have the capacity to make real progress toward positive change. I also empathically recognize that progress and change can be difficult and sometimes scary. With this in mind, I hope to meet you exactly where you are today. Counseling is not a one-size-fits-all practice; I recognize this and will work with you to tailor a therapeutic approach to your individual needs. I also understand the power of the therapeutic relationship between client and counselor and want to make the collaborative process of counseling meaningful for you.

When the challenges of life and relationship present you with complex dilemmas and create painful or uncomfortable symptoms, therapy offers an opportunity for healing and long-lasting psychological change. The power of therapy is in the way it expands your choice in behaviors or ways of seeing others, yourself and your life circumstances. Through a compassionate journey of self-exploration I will help you work toward a fuller understanding of yourself which will lead to greater choice in how you live, love, work and play. It is a privilege to join you on your journey of self-discovery and healing.

West County Psychological Associates
Psychologist, PhD
Verified
Besides counseling, our practice, West County Psychological Associates, also consults with organizations, especially schools, in a collaborative relationship to identify and process the issues (student, parent or teacher)with which they are dealing.
I have spent a number of years specializing in difficult cases whether it be individual work, couples counseling or family therapy. I especially enjoy working with families whose adolescents appear to be out of control. In those cases it is my job to help the parents to become strong enough to assume their authority and help the family to return to normalcy. I think that what draws clients to my practice is my own strength and sense of competency.

I aim to define a unique relationship where together we can nurture curiosity and harvest increasingly satisfying ways for you to live your life.
People seek therapy for variety of reasons, ranging from difficulties with a specific life event or a general pursuit for greater purpose and connectedness. Psychotherapy offers an arena for self exploration unlike any other and can prove to be a profoundly moving experience. I work with individuals affected by trauma, difficulties in relationships, depression/post-partum depression, infertility, adoption, parenting, struggles in cultural adaptation and immigration, identity, self-esteem, sexuality, etc. Often I find that the most meaningful change comes from those who are open and willing to engage in the journey. The change you seek comes from you and will be our guiding force.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Clayton relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Clayton.
