Life can be difficult and recent events have made it much harder. As the Covid-19 crisis begins to end and we return to "normal" life there are still hurdles for us to navigate. Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the residual COVID-19 issues, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life. I welcome the opportunity to help you obtain your goals.

Can talking about your problems really make things better? Well, sometimes a thoughtful structured approach to life's challenges can be very helpful. But sometimes talking just doesn't seem to make our lives different. When we go through something challenging, upsetting, or overwhelming, our bodies are involved in the response. This means to resolve the issue, our bodies need to be involved in addressing the solution.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in 08753, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
