In addition to individual therapy, I also do a lot of couples and parenting work, especially (but not exclusively) around special needs issues.
Making the decision to see a therapist is never easy and takes great courage. I try to provide a safe, trusting environment for adults who may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious and/or depressed. In my practice I use a supportive, solution-focused approach, which is practical and results oriented. I see therapy as a process for change rather than merely an exercise in insight.
