Therapy Is For Everyone.

line2

WE ALL HAVE CONCERNS, QUESTIONS, TROUBLES—DIFFICULT OR CONFUSING TIMES.
AS YOUR THERAPIST, I PROVIDE A SAFE SPACE FOR US TO EXPLORE SOLUTIONS TO LIFE
CHALLENGES…TOGETHER. IN MY OFFICE, YOU WILL BE RECEIVED WITH
WARMTH, KINDNESS, AND GENUINE CONCERN.

I will NOT JUDGE you.
I will RESPECT and HONOR your thoughts, feelings, opinions and ideas unconditionally.
I will not tell you what to do. I believe you are the EXPERT on your own life.
I will be a facilitator of GROWTH and change. I will guide you as you explore what you VALUE—and how to approach your life and relationships in ways that reflect those values.
Therapy is all about YOU. I will be open, honest, genuine, and sincere in our therapeutic relationship; still, therapy is about YOUR journey.

 

What Kinds Of Problems Can
You Help Me With?


I VIEW PROBLEMS AS SEPARATE FROM PEOPLE. WHATEVER THE ISSUE MAY BE—ANXIETY, GRIEF, RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES—I STRIVE TO UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM THROUGH YOUR LENS.

WE WILL WORK COLLABORATIVELY AS I GUIDE YOU; WE WILL EXPLORE WHAT TROUBLES YOU AND HOW PROBLEMS INFLUENCE YOUR LIFE, DECISIONS, AND RELATIONSHIPS.

USING STRENGTHS-BASED, NARRATIVE, AND MINDFULNESS METHODS, WE WILL EXPLORE YOUR SKILLS, ABILITIES, IDEALS, AND BELIEFS SO YOU HAVE A RICH UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS MEANINGFUL TO YOU AND HOW TO CONSTRUCT YOUR LIFE TO REFLECT WHAT YOU VALUE.

NO PROBLEM IS BIGGER THAN YOUR STRENGTH! I WILL SUPPORT YOU AS WE WORK TOGETHER TO FIND RELIEF FROM WHATEVER WEIGHS ON YOU SO YOU MAY LIVE A LIGHTER, BRIGHTER, AND MORE JOYFUL LIFE.

Will Therapy Make Me Feel Better?

THE PURPOSE OF THERAPY IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH PERSON: HEALING, PERSONAL GROWTH, OVERCOMING AN OBSTACLE, DEVELOPING HEALTHIER RELATIONSHIPS, AND SELF-ACTUALIZATION ARE BUT A FEW OF THE RESULTS ONE MIGHT EXPERIENCE. HOWEVER, WHEN WE VENTURE OUT INTO THE UNKNOWN, IT MAY NATURALLY FEEL FRIGHTENING—AND IT SOMETIMES GETS DARKER BEFORE THE DAWN. REST ASSURED, IF THERE ARE TIMES YOU FEEL A BIT LOST IN THE DARK, YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE. AS YOUR THERAPIST I WILL ACCOMPANY YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH THE SUNRISE AND INTO A BRIGHTER DAY.
