Everyone has the right to feel emotionally healthy. I believe that begins with giving yourself permission to address those emotions/behaviors that are disrupting your life. For some of my clients, their treatment includes resolving issues from their past or getting unstuck from a present day situation. My style is always collaborative, interactive and motivating. We work together to achieve your treatment goals.
I provide individual and group counseling to adolescents (ages 16+) and adults.
I use therapeutic approaches that are appropriate for the client's situation. That approach is a combination of insight-oriented psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Insight-oriented therapy works out of the assumption that the better you know yourself the better you will function. It gives self-knowledge by clarifying your motives and teaching you how and why you function the way you do. Cognitive-behavioral therapy looks at the relationship between our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. It explores how changing our thought processes can improve our emotional experiences.
