What I do

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”
-Brené Brown

Therapy provides a safe place for you to face and address the things that do not seem to be working in your life. The therapeutic relationship is one that is built on trust and mutual respect. It allows for open exploration, an unbiased perspective, compassion, and emotional release and understanding. Psychotherapy supports individual and family self-esteem and encourages emotional health. Importantly, in therapy, one can learn new coping strategies and ways to manage troubling feelings and situations.

Asking for help is never easy, especially when it’s related to personal, emotional, and family life. Sometimes we can deal with what life throws at us, but sometimes we just need a little assistance. Here are some things I can help you with:

  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Communication skills and conflict management Troublesome patterns of behavior
  • Substance abuse or self-harm, such as cutting
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Issues with transition such as divorce, the loss of a loved one, or leaving home

My experience as a therapist has taught me that the best way to help teens and families is to build on the strengths that they already bring to their lives and their relationships. Many clients come to treatment with more strengths than they are aware of! By weaving those strengths with new coping mechanisms you can work toward making your life feel happier, more manageable, and more rich and fulfilled.
