Announcement icon I am seeing all my clients now through Doxy.me, a simple and HIPPA secure based teletherapy, as well as by phone.
I believe many painful disorders such as depression and anxiety are rooted in unresolved relationship stress and disconnect. While this pain may have originated in a client's early childhood it is most definitely resurfacing in the client's present relationships. With my expertise, clients will recognize distorted perceptions and unhealthy relationship patterns that are keeping them stuck. They will begin to own their part in the relationship dynamic which can be highly empowering. Also, learning more effective relationship skills with the important people in their lives will enable clients to begin to experience relief from their painful clinical conditions.
I provide a safe and healing place for clients to recognize and experience the full spectrum of their feelings and thus develop the courage to express these feelings to their loved ones. Through a more authentic way of being, clients find and maintain deeper connections with themselves and others.
While trained in Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, I use a combination of therapeutic methods as each client has uniquely different issues. I am fairly direct in my approach, however my goal is to empower clients to come up with their own solutions. I may observe and guide but I do not give advice.

Healthy Relationships Services's Groups

Creating Healthy Relationships

Creating Healthy Relationships, a therapy group for women, focuses on co-dependency issues and empowerment in relationships. In the safety of a secure environment, you will gain insight into yourself and how you function in relationships, starting with the relationship with yourself. As you share life experiences and bond with each other, your strengths and weaknesses gradually unfold in miniature. Though honest disclosure of your feelings and the willingness to receive feedback as to how others experience you, you will be able to explore and heal your co-dependency issues, empowering you to create the loving connections you've always wanted.
