Therapy can be a wonderful resource in helping people manage complicated situations and issues. I view it as an educational experience. It is a course on YOU. It involves an in-depth exploration of your life, both positive and negative aspects, and the issues that cause you distress. I pull from various theoretical perspectives and tailor a therapeutic approach to your personal needs. From this, you will develop coping strategies to best address those issues. As a result, you will become an “expert” on yourself and will be able to apply the knowledge you have learned in therapy to your life.
I am an advocate for my patients’ well being and, as a team, we work together to optimize happiness and positive growth in your life. I encourage you to take an active role in the process so therapy progresses in a comfortable and effective manner..
