The focus in my approach to therapy is to provide practical, tried and true, treatment that meet your values. We can work on a myriad of issues, some of which are handling transition periods, growing up, disconnection amongst family, relationship conflicts, addiction, or you’re worried about a possible condition like anxiety or depression. Do any of these questions resonate with you? Are you mistreating yourself or are those around you treating you poorly? Do you feel like people don’t understand you? Have there been times when you feel like you’re bored with life? Is your child seen as timid and have they been bullied?
