MY PRACTICE

If you want to stop the endless bickering or constant fighting and feel connected again, come in for counseling. I will help you feel like you are on the same team again. Asking for help is not the same as admitting defeat. It is a doorway to happiness that requires hard work and commitment. I would like to walk you through that doorway.

 

Are you feeling alone in the world? Come for individual counseling to work on your relationship with yourself and others. Become the person you always wanted to be and develop connections with others in your life. Work to repair broken or lost connections. Let's work together to combat loneliness.

We live in a constantly changing world fraught with unknowns. It is normal to experience some anxiety or depressed feelings as we interact with our human society. If you find that anxious thoughts or increasing sadness, hopelessness, loneliness or anger interfere with your daily life it may be time to consider talking to a counselor. I can help you navigate the churning sea inside.

Couples who experience a drifting apart and loss of connection can benefit from early intervention. Most couples wait too long to start counseling. Even when things have deteriorated we can still work to repair and rejuvenate your relationship.    

I believe strongly in customizing care specifically for each individual or couple.  I utilize a hefty toolbox of interventions taken from various therapeutic models.  (I have listed a few of the models I like to use below).  I strive to provide compassionate, empathic and affirmative care to my clients, taking into account the impacts of larger cultural traumas and systems of oppression.
