Imagine waking up every morning feeling like you can take on the world. How great does that feel? There is something empowering about feeling completely seen and heard and being met with empathy and understanding. Finding a therapist you are comfortable with is vital to successful treatment and during your consultation we will briefly discuss your concerns and identify what topics you would like to focus on while in treatment and decide if my therapy style works best for you.
My expertise is working with individuals experiencing life stressors, including determining values and finding meaning and purpose in life, work-life balance, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, parenthood, family stress, and the ending of a relationship. My goal is to help you understand new perspectives and gain control of your life. I have worked with several demographics including those struggling with addiction, relationship crisis, victims of domestic violence, and all types of trauma, depression and grief. I work with children, adolescents and adults and provide skills training on stress management, anger management, bully prevention, and crisis intervention.
My counseling style is always open, highly interactive, and positive. I will provide you with feedback, pose challenges, and make observations which you are encouraged to constructively analyze, reject, or discuss in greater detail. Identifying your inner experiences and your outward struggles can be a powerful motivator for daily change. Together, we can ensure progress towards your goals for therapy and your satisfaction with the results.
As your therapist, I believe in fostering a sense of hope. I know that you are not here because of something that happened today, yesterday or even a week ago and whatever you are going through has not gotten better over time. Despite your efforts to feel better, you have not found a solution that fully works and I understand that life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional Mental Health Service Provider can make things better. I care about your well-being and provide you all the tools you need in order to seize the day and learn how to tackle even the most traumatic circumstances.
