As your therapist, I am here to listen, support and provide encouragement to you. I have worked with children, adolescents, teens and adults. Most recently I have counseled couples and families that have experienced grief, depression, trauma and anxiety. During my 20+ years of serving clients, I have mastered the following skills: *Interpersonal *Patient *Empathetic *Caring
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Therapy is your time to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions. I am here to provide you with the tools and techniques necessary to release stress, calm anxieties and reduce symptoms of depression. Together we will work as a team.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
During individual, couple and/or family therapy I will design a personalized treatment plan based on your needs using one of the following methods: Client-Centered Therapy focuses on the client. This treatment provides little authority or direction. Instead it encourages the client to take control of their future. Reality Therapy focuses on present issues and encourages clients to change behavior that might be preventing them from addressing those issues. It operates under the principle that people experience distress when they are not meeting basic needs: power, love/belonging and freedom. Solution Focused Therapy uses emotions as a source of healing and insight. It is especially effective for moderate depression, issues of childhood abuse and couples in the middle of a conflict.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Solution Focused Therapy is frequently used in my private practice as a source of healing various issues from the past that can prevent individuals from moving forward. As a licensed family therapist I specialize in issues that directly impact individuals, couples and families, If I am not able to provide you with quality service, I will provide you with resources and referrals to accommodate your desired outcome.
