My work specializes in treating individuals, couples and families. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future.
I realize that no two people are the same and as such tailor my therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.
I treat individuals, couples and families and I offer comprehensive services dealing with:
- Relationship Conflict
- Family Dynamics
- Transitional Issues
- Peer Conflict
- Behavioral Problems
- Relationship Enrichment
- Communication Skills
- Stress Management
When working with individuals, I consider the whole person and their individual needs. I encourage my clients to bring their concerns and struggles into therapy in order to work through them together.
Dating & Relationships
Dating can be tiring and difficult. At first you may push aside your own personal values in order to match the values of your significant other or to meet their needs. Even though you end one relationship, you can find ourselves in what feels like the same patterns in the next. Together we can work to identify the patterns to help you be in healthier and more satisfying relationships. We can identify your values to help you maintain your happiness within any and all of your relationships.
I can help be the mirror in reflecting how you got here and how you can grow towards your own personal goal. Every experience in life can serve as a lesson. I implement a combination of holistic and traditional therapy practices.
Young Adult Professionals
We undergo many changes and transitions during our 20s and 30s. It can be overwhelming. You may have many unanswered questions. I can help you channel into your voice, develop insight and strengthen your identity. Who do you want to be? What are your values? Are you happy with your career? How would you describe the quality of your life?
Couples therapy can help improve communication, manage conflict, and build trust. It can also help increase intimacy and deepen the emotional bond with your partner. When working with couples, I listen to their needs and help achieve their goals for treatment. Couples therapy isn’t just for those who are married. I do pre-marital couples counseling also.
- Premarital & Marital
- Family Conflict
- Conflict Resolution
Although I work from an integrative framework, when working with families, I like to work from a Family Systems perspective. I help individuals resolve their issues in the context of their family system. I help members look at how their actions influence the system as a whole.
When working with children and adolescents, I implement play and art therapy techniques. As Garry Landreth would say, “toys are children’s words and play is their language”. Many kids who come into treatment are unaware of what therapy is like, especially if this is their first time. The first couple sessions, I like to align with them and get to know them by implementing the toys, and activities they enjoy. I like to get to know the child’s inner world.
