Finding the right therapist can bring a great sense of relief. Feeling a connection, a safe place to open up, is vital to success in treatment. Together, exploring thoughts and behaviors as well as solutions and coping skills to address problems, should feel like a weight being lifted off. Discussing childhood, past traumas, affecting you today, is very important in my treatment approach. Do you have symptoms of depression, anxiety, substance abuse? Tackling these issues, I am happy to say, after over 15 years, I have seen great changes in quality of life for many people.
I have extensive experience treating couples around issues of communication, resolving conflicts and parenting. I am also a credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor and treat individuals of all ages with substance abuse issues. I also see adolescents and young adults with relationship issues, self harm behavior, family and self esteem problems
I draw from a variety of different sources. I seek to discover ways to help you on a daily basis so that you can feel and see the change in you. I draw from classic psychodynamic, cognitve behavioral approach, sometimes 12 step or solution focused therapy and/or trauma therapy.
