Hi there, practice offers support and assistance for those who are struggling with the transitions that life brings. I am licensed to see individuals, couples, families and children. I have broad experience in relationships, grief, divorce, family problems, parental challenges, mood challenges, depression, anxiety, abandonment, trauma, as well as personality and personal growth. I enjoy working with teens who are angry. I believe each person has an inner expertise about their life, and the client is the expert. We will collaborate together and focus on achieving your goal. I use a CBT/ brief therapy modality to achieve results.
I have extensive training in relationship dynamics. Not just relationships with others, also helping some find their authentic voice. Another area is communication; learning to communicate effectively supports and strengthens ones relationships with others. Understanding ourself is often the first step.
I do not stand behind a therapeutic façade. We all have traveled different paths. Life throws us curve balls at times, some knock us out. Getting back up takes understanding. Finding a silver lining involves exploring, reflecting, and understanding. Finding acceptance for situations out of our control can be priceless.
