We all face challenges in life and there are times when we need additional support and tools to get through them. I offer a safe, supportive and collaborative space where together we work to identify your inner strength and resources to aid in your growth and change.
Do you ever feel as though the natural approach we take to overcoming stress or “symptoms” ends up with us spinning our wheels, trying to avoid thoughts or feelings? Maybe what we really need to practice is inviting them in and fully experiencing the present moment. I have dedicated my career to helping clients overcome what life throws at them. It can be rejuvenating to try something completely new, a complete 180 to the way we were taught to interact with our inner world
I am respectful and genuine with my clients, and prioritize developing a relationship in which they feel consistently supported and challenged. I have been practicing short and long-term therapy since 2006, and work collaboratively with my clients to guide them to a better understanding of the presenting issue, to highlight their strengths and resources, and to help them to identify other ways of approaching complex problems. Psychotherapy can be the first step towards developing insight into our problems, allowing for symptom relief and for creating more possibilities for meaningful experiences in our lives.
Are you experiencing problems with your child, spouse or family member? Maybe relationships or other issues are interfering with your family's daily life. I have over 20 years experience offering individual, family, couple and play therapy. My collaborative approach involves physicians, schools and other professionals to meet the specific needs of each client.
I am a marriage and family therapist that believes therapy is something that happens with you, not to you. My style is one that is collaborative, transparent, patient, compassionate, insight oriented, emotionally focused and strength-based. I have experience working with all ages but have focused the majority of my practice on working with adult professionals, college students, couples, and parents.
When you're struggling with anxiety or with your relationship with food/body image, it affects everything in your life- work, school, parenthood, relationships. It tries to convince you of lies that something is wrong with you or with your body, that you’re stuck, and gets in the way of you living the life you want. Change can seem overwhelming (while sometimes it is), it can also be empowering, especially the ones to be made internally. The fact that you found your way to this page and are contemplating reaching out, means you're curious about what changes you can make in your life and what beauty lies ahead.
Each of us have faced painful personal experiences. Pain can be due to events, interactions with others or troubled relationships. Or they can be caused by negative behavior or thought patterns that won’t stop. Sometimes we can address such troubles on their own. However, if you have been unable to resolve difficult issues alone, you may realize how they reduce the quality of your life – by establishing a pattern of emotional problems, an inability to interact productively with others, impacting your career, negatively affect relationships, or create problematic habits. But they can be addressed with help. My hours are M-F 8-4
We all experience some sort of pain, stress, trauma, or adversity in our personal lives and relationships. When our hearts ache, we search for ways to cope. These initial ways of coping often are adaptive in the short term. However, in the longer term, these same coping strategies may hinder further growth and healing. You and I can work together without judgment to dismantle painful experiences and cultivate a strong, empowered, and healthy core sense of self. You can realize your full potential and mobilize into healthy and constructive patterns of thought, behavior, and emotion.
I understand how difficult it can be for some to ask for help. Whether you're considering entering therapy for the first time, or have prior experience, the first priority is on developing a sense of safety in the therapy session. Once a trusting connection is developed, I allow the client to identify their own goals. I believe therapy is about change, but the type of change we work toward and the pace with which we work, is determined by the client. I provide support and guidance in this process.
Are there relationship issues in your life? Perhaps there's problems with your child, spouse, partner, family member or friend. My practice offers individual, family, couple and play therapy. I tailor treatment to meet the specific needs of each client. I believe in working with clients to establish a treatment focus most important in their lives. I work collaboratively with schools, physicians and other professionals as needed to address different areas of a client's life.
I have a passion for working with individuals struggling with life changes and mental health. As a licensed clinical social worker, I have 25 years experience working as a therapist in various counseling, school, and mental health environments. I provide individual and family therapy to adolescents and adults in a supportive, safe, environment. My goal is to meet individuals where they are at currently and help each person to formulate a plan on where they would like to be.
All people struggle at times. My approach is to hear these struggles from each person's unique point of view and to discover new options responding to these difficulties. I help people to identify their core strengths and values as resources for living. My approach also incorporates mindfulness and skill building for emotional resilience. I work with adults struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues, and/or addictions.
Life can be incredibly difficult and even tragic at times. Abrupt transitions; mental and physical illness; even a simple lack of direction can all constitute overwhelming obstacles. We often find ourselves needing an outside perspective and a supportive environment to sort through our jumbled thought process. Mental Health Counseling can provide this. For the past six years I have specialized in treating anxiety, panic, OCD, trauma, and life-transition related issues.
Hi. Since 1978 I've help individuals and couples with communication,stress, depression, sex, affairs, pornography, PTSD. My comprehensive approach to counseling integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of life in a way which not only treats painful symptoms but also heals the underlying emotional wounds. I believe that empathic listening without judging is the foundation of emotinal healing.Therapy is a process of gaining a wider perspective which reveals how past trauma are connected to present problems.Greater mindfulness reveals how old, problematic response patterns can be discarded and replaced by new and better ones.
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and like a battle. There are times you are just get through the day and aren't sure how you got here or what to do next. With the right support, I believe there is always opportunity for change, growth, and healing. It takes courage to reach out and share your story; I am here to work with you as you begin your healing journey. Together, we will work to create long lasting changes in your life. Whether you want to heal from past traumas, improve relationships, or develop a greater sense of self worth, therapy can be a place to begin making these changes.
Do you feel like words may not fully address your experiences? Are you looking for strengths-based support to discover and embody a way of behaving, or relating that feels better to you? Art therapy can allow you to explore your feelings and work through your experiences on a somatic (bodily) level. It can help integrate trauma and promote resilience.
You bring a unique set of circumstances to the healing process in therapy. I facilitate an individualized, collaborative process with you in an encouraging, supportive context. Incorporating evidence-based interventions, I will work with you from a strengths-based perspective, respecting your resourcefulness in your effort to heal emotional and psychological wounds and improve relationships, beginning with self-understanding. You are invited to ask questions and be an active participant. I view you as an individual, but in the context of the broader systems in which you operate; family, community, work-life and spiritual.
Are you a frustrated parent, feeling that you cannot connect with your child? Are you dealing with temper tantrums, defiance or even aggression? Are you concerned when you can't calm your child when they are anxious, scared or overwhelmed? Are you getting contacted by schools regarding their behavior? Does it feel like getting your child ready to leave the house or go to bed is exhausting? Have you wondered if your child has friends or the skills to progress academically? Does your child have a developmental diagnosis? Do you worry the effect having a child with a disability and/or behavior problem is having on your whole family?
There are no ideal clients -- there are only ideal therapeutic relationships. Every client brings their issues into session. As a therapist my hope is that we are able to address these issues with mutual authenticity. This authenticity comes from our mutual interest in honesty, presenting our genuine selves, and our willingness to work together in finding solutions to issues that impede the client's ability to live a fulfilling life.
