No one knows you better than you know yourself, and my goal is to help you unlock answers and awareness buried within you.
My professional interests range from working with those with depression, addiction and sexuality issues.
My ultimate goal in therapy is to bring clarity and relief from the challenges you are facing.
I will periodically check in with you during the process of counseling to see how you are feeling and if this is a good fit.""Many of the issues or problems we face are resolvable, however there are those moments when we hit roadblocks.
I will periodically check in with you during the process of counseling to see how you are feeling and if this is a good fit.""At Cognitive Behavior Institute, we use established treatment methods that have proven to be effective for a wide range of psychological issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, ADHD, and substance abuse.
This is facilitated by my focus on building a strong and mutually trusting therapeutic relationship.
I utilize an insight-oriented approach when underlying factors are contributing to emotional pain, but I also use cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness/relaxation, and problem solving to help people find the right solutions for them.""I believe that the key to change in psychotherapy is creating a safe environment in which you can explore the issues that brought you into therapy, and developing new ways of coping with them.
I have experience working with people from all kinds of situations, from overwhelmed single parents, to depressed adolescents with dating, to those with a seemingly lonely life after retirement, to the divorced middle-aged working on personal growth and development, to victims of violence and abuse, to those couples getting ready for a life together, to those just working on more fulfilling lives. I am a counselor, art therapist and EMDR certified.
It is important to me that we spend time agreeing on goals and working on them together.""Feeling stuck? In my practice, you will find a safe place to ask questions, learn about yourself, and breathe deeply.
While there are many techniques, approaches, and coping mechanisms that act as tools--it is the facilitation of growth, unconditional positive regard, and strong therapeutic alliance that I believe is the catalyst for change.""Every Conversation Matters.
Counselors facilitate healing through a process of genuine dialogue with their clients.
They may start feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or depressed on a daily basis.
