This collaborative relationship is the vehicle for working through, understanding, and resolving feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and relationship patterns that interfere with your development and well being.""I believe a commitment to therapy is a commitment to oneself.
It is very powerful to commit to grow and change in ways that increase a sense of personal satisfaction with one's life.
Usually there has been an event or relational experience that has caused emotional pain from which you are seeking relief or understanding.
You don't necessarily know what to call what you're feeling; or have a particular label for it -- you just want some help. I believe it is very important - for both of us - that we feel like we're a good "fit".
Engaging in therapy has many benefits such as alleviating anxiety and dissatisfaction, learning better coping skills, improving relationships with others, increasing self awareness, and finding greater personal meaning.""I am a direct, warm, engaged and interactive therapist.""I use a person-centered approach, in which the client's unique set of values and interests guides me in shaping the path for growth and change.To support this collaboration, I provide knowledge of relaxation techniques, behavioral modification, exploration of childhood experiences, and philosophical or spiritual frameworks that give structure to enduring change.I have experience treating people with a range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, grief, stress, loss, feeling numb, insomnia, relationship difficulties, cancer, chronic illness, and trauma.My ways of working include talk therapy, dance/movement therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I have extensive experience helping children, teens, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and the impact of grief, trauma and challenging relationships and/or a family member's chemical dependency.""I view therapy as a relational and collaborative process between counselor and client(s) that focuses on clients' personal goals and desires for change.
