Whether you are an individual or a couple, I am committed to working together to help you face difficulties in yourself and in your situation. I provide a private and confidential space for you share and a supportive place for you to learn new ways of being and relating.
Benefits of Psychotherapy:
When struggles and opportunities are are met with acceptance and compassion in the context of a safe and trusting relationship, we are often able to reconnect with our strengths and feel more joy and connection in our lives
Psychotherapy is a collaborative and interactive relationship. It is a process of feeling comfortable to share and be yourself in a safe and accepting relationship to look at what is really real for you.
HOW I WORK:
The session is space and time devoted entirely on you. We work together to discover what you think, feel and want. I provide clinical feedback, facilitate guided practice exercises, provide psycho-education, and suggestions for life between sessions.
