When you consider your life, think in terms of possibility, rather than limitations. Effective counseling should provide a steady progression from confusion, uncertainty, and wounding toward healing, health and well-being. To offer this kind of therapy, I fine-tune my ear to your individual needs and your situation. Your solutions must fit with your principles and values. Simply put, I see no point in offering cookie-cutter answers. As a member of Your Team, I will help you uncover both creative and plausible solutions to seemingly impossible problems. *** My professional intern can work with you for a reduced rate.
Many clients ask about hypnosis, which is an optional tool for therapy. Clinical hypnosis offers a focus to help you retrieve innate strengths and resources. Many conditions, which might otherwise require medication, improve with hypnotherapy. These include anxiety, depression, fear and phobias, headaches, pain, sleep disorders, concentration, and many more.
My husband, Timothy Furness, and I provide co-therapy for couples and families exploring and resolving differences without gender bias. Our solution-focused approach helps negotiate disagreements successfully, strengthen family bonds, and improve communication. We individualize therapy to meet everyone's unique situation and needs.
