Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
Verified
Change is hard. For some of us it is simply a need to explore a specific issue, job change, relationship exploration, or a goal for our future. For others, long held negative thoughts/ beliefs, anxiety and depression can paralyze moving forward, leaving us floundering for years. Regardless, change is possible. It is your turn, there is hope.

I have a great deal of experience using evidence based practices and techniques geared towards improving the lives and happiness of clients. I emphasize helping clients be more aware of their common thought patterns and to modify their ways of thinking and emotions to better promote feelings of well being. Focusing on the present is more conducive to well being than being consumed by the past or worries about the future. Helping clients control what they can is the key.and inevitably behavior will change as well.

Are you troubled and stressed in a relationship, but don't know how to change things? Do you say yes when you want to say no? Are you covering up your pain with destructive behaviors? Do you judge yourself harshly and feel you are just never good enough? Negative thoughts, anxiety and low self esteem can be an enormous burden, making it a crushing chore to just get through the day. They affect your relationships, your ability to work, and can lead to substance abuse, over-eating and other behaviors that can pull you into a downward spiral.
