Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support for you or your family when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving individuals and families the tools needed to re-direct damaging patterns, find new perspectives and understanding, and overcome whatever challenges that life delivers. In short, I view therapy as "mental training" that helps an individual break through the barriers that hold them back in life.
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." -Viktor Frankl
I have been described as a compassionate and active therapist who is dedicated to helping clients make positive change. To that end, I primarily use cognitive-behavioral and family system approaches in session. I know that all clients enter therapy with specific strengths and do my best to help clients pull from those strengths. I also realize that entering therapy is a large emotional and financial commitment, and do everything I can to make the experience results-oriented so that you can make the most of your investment. Nonetheless, each client is unique and I tailor my approach to meet each specific need, concern, and desired pace.
My goal is that you will be empowered to change as we explore the connection between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This understanding, along with newly learned skills and mental training, can help you make positive changes in your life. I look forward to working with you on your journey.
