After more than decade in the mental health field, first as a student and now as a practitioner, I have found that those with a genuine desire for mental health services sometimes simply don't have the time to receive them. More worrisome still, those that mourn deeply or suffer from depression tend to lack the very motivation necessary to physically seek out services. My team and I specialize in perinatal, postnatal, and postpartum depression, and in grief counseling for all stages of life. We'll come to you - in person, over the phone, or online.

Our specialties, among others: Reality Therapy, the idea that our actions are aimed at satisfying "basic needs" like belonging, and Existential Therapy, the belief that our inner conflict is our confrontation with "ultimate concerns" like death. Our focus: The present, a workable plan, and life has meaning, even in suffering.

However, a worthwhile therapeutic connection must come before addressing any "basic needs" or "ultimate concerns". We, therefore, invite all mothers, children, parents, seniors, and those that grieve to come; make a connection worth keeping. If another provider is what's best, no worries... we'll help there too.

Después de más de una década en el campo de la salud mental, primero como estudiante y ahora como profesional, he encontrado que las personas con un deseo genuino de servicios de salud mental a veces simplemente no tienen el tiempo para recibirlos. Más preocupante aún, aquellos que lloran profundamente o sufren de depresión tienden a carecer de la motivación necesaria para buscar físicamente los servicios. Mi equipo y yo nos especializamos en la depresión perinatal, postnatal y posparto, y en el asesoramiento de duelo para todas las etapas de la vida. Acudiremos a usted, en persona, por teléfono o en línea.

Nuestras especialidades, entre otras: la terapia de la realidad, la idea de que nuestras acciones están dirigidas a satisfacer "necesidades básicas" como la pertenencia, y la terapia existencial, la creencia de que nuestro conflicto interno es nuestra confrontación con las "preocupaciones últimas" como la muerte.

Debe existir una conexión terapéutica que valga la pena antes de abordar cualquier "necesidad básica" o "inquietud última". Por lo tanto, invitamos a todas las madres, niños, padres y aquellos que se afligen a venir; hacer una conexión que valga la pena mantener. Si otro proveedor es lo mejor, no se preocupe ... nosotros también ayudaremos ahi.
