About

All of us, at some point in our lives, are going to experience a significant emotional struggle. Whether individual or relational, we all encounter sometimes brief, sometimes longer, periods where our struggle may begin to feel overwhelming. My practice is founded on treating clients with a comprehensive psychosocial approach. Most individuals realize medication can temporarily retard the progress of symptoms through symptom reduction. Alone, medication cannot resolve the personal issues associated with long term increases in quality of life. I believe my best professional strengths are an abiding respect for the individual coming into my office, and a reliable resource to explore, educate and inform persons about critical life issues.
Personal limitations occur when one's understanding of self and others, and basic coping skills, become insufficient to address the problems at hand. Typically, symptoms begin to emerge at this point in a person's life.
Therapy offers the opportunity to collaborate with the client to determine sources of personal strength and limitation and to transform limitations to strengths through practical application.
