There are many different approaches to psychotherapy (or "therapy") and everyone has their own reasons for seeking it out. Psychotherapy provides a space to explore your thoughts, feelings and may help you gain a better understanding to your situation. I provide a safe, neutral, non-judgmental place for you to share aspects of yourself that you might not be comfortable doing with even those closest to you. I will go at your pace and address goals that you'd like to achieve.

Therapy can seem like an esoteric phenomenon in juxtaposition to different cultural mores, family practices, religious beliefs and world-views. It can also be approached as a purposeful conversation intended to shed light on previously unexamined areas of the client's life with the potential of revealing a new way of looking at one's relationship to the world.

Psychotherapy offers an individually tailored approach to clients' lives, families, relationships. Client(s) and therapist can decide together what approaches may be most helpful. Therapy can also involve referrals to other professionals and/or activities that can support our work. Most importantly, psychotherapy offers a safe haven within which to explore what difficulties clients experience and within which to have opportunities to grow in mindfulness, self-care, relationship skills, boundary-setting, emotional healing etc.

As a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience, the focus of my work is PASSION. My work with individuals and couples is to create a deeper relationship first with ourselves and then within the relationship to have a more fulfilled and passionate life. In my experience, passion comes when our inner life matches our outer life, when we live authentically and in integrity with our values. My work with individuals begins there, identifying our values and what excites us and removing the blocks to living that inner truth more fully in our lives.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

I believe in showing my clients empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. There is no script to follow. It is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating the incredibly healing message of, "You are not alone." My approach to helping is to show up authentically, without judgment and provide unconditional acceptance and guidance in the therapy room. My philosophy regarding psychotherapy is that healing happens in a warm and safe therapeutic relationship. What I find most important is creating a space between the therapist and client that is sacred, unique, very honest, and above all, compassionate. I use down to earth examples and exercises as a way to approach the healing process...(view profile to read more)

Psychotherapy is the use of verbal or other therapeutic-based modalities to create a positive change for the person seeking it. Psychotherapy is a unique process for each person who participates in it and the time that one spends in this process varies from case to case. Over time, one of the essential goals of psychotherapy is for our clients to obtain the necessary tools to work through issues on their own as they arise. It is essential that clients remember that psychotherapy is a process, and if done correctly, a beneficial one. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Psychological interventions are useful tools that can help bring about awareness and produce changes in people lives. There is a lot of research that supports how psychotherapy can be beneficial for mental health problems. Cognitive Behavioral therapy, which is the therapeutic model I primarily utilize, is especially recognized as helping to reduce depression and anxiety. I believe that what is considered “talk therapy” can be useful to improve a person’s psychological well-being. My desire is for people to be able to accomplish their goals during their time in therapy and maintain their progress thereafter.

Many people think about starting psychotherapy for a long time before working up the courage to follow through. It is a scary thing to open up to a stranger about your deepest thoughts, fears, and insecurities; but it is also an incredibly brave thing to do! You have chosen to take a step towards improving your life and that takes effort and courage! It is always a privilege for me to help guide a client to a healthier and more balanced life. I'm not going to lie and say I can make you happy, I can't, but I can help you learn how to create your own happiness, and learn how to become your own therapist so that you can continue making positive changes long after our time together is over.

Psychotherapy can also be called, 'talk therapy', with the ultimate goal towards bringing relief from problematic symptoms that may stem from emotional and/or psychological turmoil. I have worked with clients in psychotherapy in a number of ways, but namely creating an open space during a therapeutic session in which an individual can discover new insights into their problem areas in order to create healthy choices for improved relationships. During psychotherapy, we will look at conflicts and problem areas that create continued roadblocks & conjointly examine how someone's past experiences may be reflective towards making changes today; we will unpack this impasse to open new roads ahead!

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.
