As your confidential ear to listen, I will help you identify goals that are specific to your treatment needs. If you are struggling with life's challenges, are dealing with a difficult transition in your life, or if you need assistance with finding new ways to cope with issues, then you have found the right place. Is anxiety, depression or uncertainty weighing you down? Let's talk about it. I am dedicated to helping you along your journey as you process through difficult issues. I strongly believe that the key to change is through talking out your problems and understanding that you have the power to overcome the hurdle that is in front of you.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
At the end of a session, you can expect more clarity and relief than when you first began. Whether it is to vent or explore deep into what may be troubling, the take away is that you are moving forward and making progress to reach your treatment goal(s). In addition, I may sometimes assign a task, or homework assignment for clients to complete and bring to their next session to discuss (this does vary based on client needs).
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, with experience in individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy and group therapy. I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Structural Family Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Strengths that I like to highlight include acceptance of all clients from different walks of life, strong interpersonal skills, being a good listener, maintaining respect, and rapport-building with my clients. Building a therapeutic rapport is the cornerstone of successful treatment. I like to make my clients feel welcomed, comfortable, and safe to share what's on their mind. At the end of the day, we are all human, so it is important for me to relate to clients in that aspect of humanity, which makes for a healthy, genuine connection. You can expect a personal, yet professional atmosphere while allowing yourself the ability to heal and move forward into the life you've always imagined. Your future self will thank you for it.
