Psychotherapy is not about focusing on the problems in life, but more about solution building. Although it acknowledges present problems and past causes, it predominantly explores your current resources and future hopes -helping you to look forward and use your own strengths to achieve your goals. It works by helping you to overcome problems without tackling them directly-using solution building concepts to foster change and helping you to develop a set of clear, concise and realistic goals.

I empathize with your struggles and believe that you are equipped with the skills to create change in your life, though you may need help refining and identifying those skills. It is also my belief that you know at least on some level what change is needed in your life. Therefore, I am professionally trained to help you clarify your goals and guide you to see what is working for you, as well as encourage you to experiment with new approaches to your problems.

I am a licensed clinical therapist with years of experience. My theoretical approach to counseling is multi-modal using a variety of approaches that may include cognitive behavioral, emotion focused, psychodynamic, motivational interviewing and EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) for trauma and anxiety related issues.

The human spirit can overcome anything if it has hope. Addressing your mental health issues will help you find joy and cleave to the reasons for living.
