With passion for Therapy

 

I think of myself as an Agent of Change. I believe true change starts from the inside out, and that making a change can be a huge challenge all on its own. Change truly takes motivation, dedication, patients, commitment, courage, support, and trust. 

My style of therapy is a mixture of support, challenge, creativity, humor, and authenticity. We will deeply explore what's happening for you so that you may experience change that lasts. I help my clients to identify unhelpful patterns that may be making their lives more difficult and we work to find realistic solutions aimed at improving quality of life. 

Through psychotherapy I help clients discover new possibilities. 

Therapy can help you understand your patterns, recognize your strengths and wisdom, and learn to be more effective at reaching your goals. I specialize in individual psychotherapy, couples work, and career assessments that emphasize your personality type and interests. I work with individuals who are interested in growth and positive change in all aspects of their lives. 

I specialize in restoring relationships. This includes relationships with others and yourself. I do this by helping you understand things that are outside of your awareness so that you may become more empowered and intentional rather than limited and reactive toward yourself and others. The clients I see tend to be interested in engaging in emotionally deep, and insight oriented psychotherapy with the goal of understanding, and changing, unhelpful relating styles. 

I work collaboratively with you to assist you in becoming your own best self. I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach to blend techniques to facilitate the therapeutic process and to create customized plans for growth, healing, and coping for all my clients. When working with couples I utilize the Gottman Method in addition to my primary cognitive-behavioral approach. These approaches enable you to gain greater self-awareness and the ability to utilize skills learned in session in everyday life. 

If you are interested in beginning psychotherapy, please call me for a brief, 10 minute, free phone consultation to discuss what you are looking for and discover new possibilities! If you fall outside my specialty range, but feel I might be a good fit, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss it!
