Hello and welcome! My practice specializes in assisting individuals through transitional points in their life whether that is the loss of a relationship, new employment/career, marital strife, retirement, pandemics (COVID-19), the diagnosis of a chronic health condition, divorce, unemployment, accident/injury, or the death of a loved one. It is not uncommon to feel "stuck" during these transitional points and it is often beneficial to process these challenges with a professional.
My services are typically short term and focus on cognitive and behavioral change in order to improve resiliency and quality of life. My therapeutic strategies assist an individual with recognizing how thoughts, emotions, and behavioral responses are connected as well as the benefit of using a mindful approach to mitigate transitional challenges.
Taking the first step and reaching out for help is often the hardest. However, psychologists are uniquely trained to assist you in taking the necessary steps and developing a plan of action to address the challenge you are experiencing. I encourage my patients to move in the direction of growth by challenging their resistance to change.

Therapy in my practice is an exchange of ideas using a Socratic methodology. The initial focus is on gaining an awareness of what is triggering current "dis-ease" and proactively implementing new strategies to alter course and function more adaptively.
