Struggling with your moods or your relationships?

Whatever your current problems are, know this: all humans struggle, fail, and get lost at times along the journey of life. You may be having a hard time right now, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. We don’t automatically know how to be happy, healthy, and successful in our lives and relationships. If you were never taught the tools you need to manage stress and anxiety, have a happy relationship, or handle the other challenges life throws at all of us, it’s understandable that you’d be overwhelmed – it’s not that different from trying to play guitar when you’ve never taken any lessons!

As someone who’s overcome their own share of struggles, I know how overwhelming it can be to feel lost and alone, whether it’s in your relationships or just in your head. I also know how valuable the support I’ve received from others has been on my journey, and that’s part of why I’ve dedicated my career to helping others.

Therapy for you and your needs

 

In over a decade of work as a therapist, I’ve developed an approach to therapy that is warm and friendly, but also concrete and practical. While talking about your problems can help you have a better understanding of them, that alone isn’t enough to fix things. So, therapy with me is more than just talk. I teach my clients the tools and skills they need to overcome their struggles, improve their relationships, and create happier and more fulfilling lives.

Therapy is art and science – the science is in the techniques I use (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy are the primary modalities I work in), and the art is in identifying and applying the techniques that will work for you, your unique personality, goals, and learning style. I don’t do ‘one size fits all’ therapy, and my ability to adapt my approach to fit each client is one of my strengths as a therapist. Research has shown us that therapy works just as well when done via telephone or online as in person, and I’m comfortable working in whatever way you feel works best for you.
