Psychotherapy can look different for everyone depending on one's goals and expectations. I work to understand what each person wants to get out of therapy, and closely collaborate in determining what is the best course of action to meet those goals. I focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship with each child, teen or adult as this is often a catalyst in seeing positive change.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

I love doing psychotherapy with individuals. It is an exploration of who you are, your stengths, where to you get stuck? Many issues you may be struggling with just vanish with a new understanding of your life and your body's responses to stress and trauma. Sometimes, specific tools and skills need to be learned and practiced. Safety and confidetiality are the first requirements in working well together. Next comes attunement. Have you ever felt like someone really really gets you? That is what good therapy does. Being really understood by someone makes us feel better about ourselves and removes our shame, allowing us to connect with others and enjoy our life rather than be burdened by it.

In psychotherapy, the therapist and the client build a unique relationship. Like most positive relationships, it is centered on caring and trust. Unlike other relationships, this one exists solely to meet the needs of the client. It can be very helpful to talk with friends and family when you’re struggling, but friends and family have a vested interest in the outcome of your struggles. They are familiar with who you are, so it is usually uncomfortable for them if you change, even when the change is positive and needed. As an unbiased professional, your therapist focuses on what is best for you, whether it is making big changes, small changes, or no changes.

Are you noticing a vague sense of inner angst that just doesn't go away, despite your best intentions? Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt? So often we notice that a part of us is off kilter, but without the tools and support to change, we tend to end up in the same negative patterns again and again, despite our desire to change. By offering specific specific tools for inner work and outer relationships, together we can help you move to a place of feeling empowered and at peace within. Please feel free to give me a call today at 925-520-5263.

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods to help a person change behavior and overcome problems in a positive manner. Its aim is to help people understand the thoughts behind feeling anxious or depressed and addressing these thinking patterns. Psychotherapy will help you change behaviors and habits that are limiting you, to experiencing your fullest potential.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

You have an innate potential for insight, growth and awareness. You were born with an impulse for wholeness. You possess a truly remarkable ability to heal from past wounds, and to use those healed wounds and rewritten life stories to break the chains of toxic thoughts, habits and behaviors that prevent you from living the life you desire. Effective psychotherapy is not about simply talking, circling through past memories or pondering the Why of your life. I believe in a collaborative, holistic style of work that accesses your own knowing, builds your self trust, awakens your inner fire and gives you powerful tools to chose and manifest a life of contentment, ease and meaning,

I see psychotherapy as a process of reflecting on the difficulties in your life in the context of a gradually developing relationship of safety and trust with an understanding therapist. In this relationship you can begin to open up issues and feelings that may have felt too difficult to explore on your own. An experienced therapist will help you to gain new insights on your life, perhaps pointing to areas where growth can occur. Issues that are painful can be addressed as you are ready and can often be resolved by exploring all the complex factors involved. Good psychotherapy will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and the freedom to make new choices.

You are the most important person in the room when you come to counseling. It is a place for you to discover the deep-down you--your thoughts, your feelings, your deep-down fears and concerns. It's a place to explore your core beliefs and to put them up to the mirror to find out if those beliefs are valid or need to be rewritten into something more realistic for you. As a result, you can develop better relationships and communication skills. You will learn how to live a more effective life versus life just happening to you. You have a choice. Do you want to manage and orchestrate your life to become the person you always dreamed of becoming or have old feelings and fears dragging you down?

Psychotherapy can be a great opportunity. I think the bravest and healthiest people are willing to submit themselves to the process of psychotherapy. Much good can come from it. When we suffer in silence, we are unable to see many things. Psychotherapy gives us a chance to examine ourselves in a new way. Moreover, modern psychotherapy can provide us with lasting change. The brain has neural-plasticity, meaning it can change. Our patterns may seem impossible to change. Yet change is possible. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin changing your life. You are worth it!
