Victoria Counseling Services believes that combination of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology lead to a quick recovery of mental illness. Our clients are advised to either work with their therapist or get therapy with us as they continue their psychopharmacology. The mode of therapy prescribed is based on individuals diagnosis. Cognitive behavioral therapy, Supportive therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy are some of the many therapies that are available at Victoria Counseling Services.

Psychotherapy is a special opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, and goals with a professional who is non-judgmental yet circumspect and experienced in helping you to better understand yourself. But understanding is not enough, as we well know. In psychotherapy, you will be encouraged and supported in applying your understanding: in trying new behaviors, in gently expanding your "comfort zone," in bringing some personal goals that previously may have felt "far-fetched" within reach. I believe that we all need to feel that we are making progress in our lives ... feel that we are "getting somewhere" in life, and this gives us meaning and direction.

Psychotherapy takes place in a trusting relationship where creativity occurs and something new can happen. As the therapist, an important part of my role is to create a potential space in which you develop your gifts and abilities. In the relationship of psychotherapy, you can experience the present and your past in a different way. You can let go of past hurts, develop new skills, and connect with your true nature to create and embody an enlivened sense of self. I can help you do this.

While much of my practice centers around brief therapies sometimes we have to understand, process, and come to terms with the past before we can move on in the present. This is where psychotherapy can be useful. Often clients will come in either angry with their families of origin or guilt ridden because they love their family of origin but are struggling with the effects poor family boundaries or volatile environments. It is possible to look in the past, digest what happened and finding peace while respectfully seeing your caregivers as fallible human beings. Psychotherapy is a longer term form of therapy which frames the present as a function of past experiences.

I use a variety of psychotherapy theories and styles. My goal is always to get to know you and look for ways I can help you better understand and control your thinking and your behaviors/actions in your own preferred ways. We may decide to emphasize homework between sessions, coming up with self-care strategies, or understanding how early relationships have formed us.

I use a variety of therapeutic interventions to help folks overcome the issues that hold them bound. Psychotherapy is just helping change the mind, thoughts and behaviors to work together in a healthy fashion where they have been working against you in a negative spiral. We get locked into patterns of thinking and often need someone else to be objective and help us change our negative bent.

Since I have been providing psychotherapy for over 30 years, I have developed a wisdom and expertise that my clients find enormously helpful. I am supportive and empathetic yet challenging. I share my thoughts and guidance with my clients in psychotherapy, instead of just passively listening and nodding. Clients who want to feel like they have an active partner in their quest for personal growth appreciate the unique psychotherapy I offer, which can help individuals overcome depression, anxiety and family and relationship concerns. I have many tools in my toolbox and coach clients to learn how to help themselves. Sometimes we have to delve deeply and sometimes not but growth will occur!

When something in your life seems out of control ~ when a hurtful past is flooding you with anxiety or depression ~ when other feelings are overwhelming ~ when thoughts are confused and decisions are hard or made with poor judgment ~ when relationships have soured ~ my approach to psychotherapy will help you assess why, and provide the direction and tools for transforming what is in your power to change. My expertise is in helping clients overcome trauma, eating disorders and injuries from childhood, and I also specialize in working with men's issues and the challenges of being a college student.
