My psychotherapy approach relies on a personal growth model that is client-centered. I focus on client needs and utilize approaches that will result in desired change. The goal is to empower clients by teaching them skills and strategies that will allow them to have victory over their concerns and to have a meaningful existence. My objective is to teach clients to be proactive about their lives, self-sufficient and establish a healthy interdependence. It is my intention that clients increase their self-confidence and self-efficacy to attain their fullest potential and lead enriching lives.

The word "psychotherapy" can be a confusing term. Essentially psychotherapy is another way to say counseling or therapy. In the therapy process, I assist clients in identifying how their thoughts impact their emotions and feelings which ultimately influence their choices and actions. I work with clients in developing ways to manage their thought patterens so they can better understand why they behave and feel the way they do. Once the client has a clear understanding of their issues, they can more effectively develop realistic and practical goals that will help them make the desired changes.

Brief therapy focused on solutions to help reduce anxiety, fears, worry, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, stress and obsessing. While understanding the past and the 'why' of having anxiety, fears, or even phobias may help, what really makes recovery effective is learning new skills for relaxation, new ways to think productively, and the lifestyle behaviors that reduce stress and anxiety. My 23 years of working with these problems and the associated depression that often follows with anxiety and the major clinical research agree that cognitive - behavioral therapy works. I use a variety of tools to help you get relief and overcome fears, anxiety, worry, and depression.

If you are struggling in life or feeling stuck and wanting to change, I offer a place for you to explore, gain insight, and experience growth and healing. I help people to identify negative patterns in their lives and in their relationships -- and then I help them to change those patterns. In the words of the Serenity Prayer, I help people have 'the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, the courage to change the things they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'

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.

My approach to psychotherapy involves both traditional and cutting-edge techniques in an atmosphere of warmth, acceptance, and collaboration. The relationship can be an important source of healing along with the use of a wide range of tools to improve coping skills and build resources. Having a safe space to talk about your feelings and focus on your life is powerful. In addition, I use techniques that help you move through stuck places more quickly. We all have had negative events in our lives that have affected us and have caused stuck patterns and beliefs. There is a way out with the techniques I use such as EMDR and EFT. You can let go of the past and move on. I am here to help.

As human beings, we are wired for healing and growth. In the context of a safe, warm, attuned therapeutic relationship we can face emotions and situations that seem too overwhelming to face alone. My style is collaborative, respectful, and works in the 'here and now' with a belief in the human capacity for transforming difficult situations into opportunities for growth. Psychotherapy can help you connect with yourself and others, develop resilience to handle life's challenges, and assist you in navigating life's transitions.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.
