**PLEASE E-MAIL ME FOR FASTER TURNAROUND TIME/VM in 24 hours** Although complex, we as humans have an innate tendency to think irrationally and engage in acts of self-defeat even despite our best efforts not to. Common self-defeating behaviors that you may be struggling with include: avoidance/panic, isolation, procrastination, passive or aggressive communication, substance abuse, food, sex, or gambling addiction, and self-injury to name some. These self-defeating behaviors are linked to the unhealthy negative emotions that you may also be experiencing such as: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, hurt, envy, and jealousy.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.

Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.

These factors contribute to achievement of pleasure and fulfillment in life and relationships. My strength is that I incorporate the theory of cognitive therapy with the concept that past experiences and interactions have an influence on current beliefs and behavioral patterns. Through this approach, I am able to come to a more complete conceptualization and establish trust and rapport with my clients which enables them to engage in the therapeutic process more fully.
