I am an individual and family therapist and have had 20 years of experience as a Licensed Independent Social Worker. My commitment to you is to listen to you and engage in conversations about what brought you to seek therapy and together find ways to help you to learn what methods can work as tools for moving forward and living well. I feel a holistic approach to being as "well" as one can be, includes considering our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and how these realms interrelate with each other. I am compassionate and empathetic. My style is warm and laid back, but I will confront the issues at hand when that is needed. My approach includes cognitive behavioral, narrative, rational-emotive therapies and others. Therapy will be structured with each individual, tailored to their needs.
My experience includes the following areas; Life transitions (divorce, marriage, aging issues, health changes, etc.), anxiety, adoption issues, depression, trauma, illness- related, loss and grief, relationship issues, parenting concerns, self-esteem, domestic violence issues, and more.
My passion is to help others along their way--to be there to listen to them, share insights and help them find what works. I encourage you to engage in this process. Through our interaction, we will find ways to help you make better choices, and integrate thoughtful, healthy behavior which will help you achieve your goals. Whatever you might be dealing with, I would welcome the opportunity to help.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Compassion fatigue, Abandonment, Adoption and Foster Care, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Body Image, Cancer, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Chronic Pain Illness and Disability, Codependency, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Coping with Natural or Human-Caused Disaster, Dependent Personality, Divorce and Separation, Domestic Violence, Emptiness, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, First Responder Issues, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Hospice and End of Life Counseling, Impulsivity, Infidelity, Isolation / Loneliness, Jealousy, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Mood Disorders, Phobias, Postpartum Depression, Post-traumatic Stress, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
