Psychotherapy varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Psychotherapy is a bit like a medical doctor visit in which it calls for a very active effort on your part. You will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions as well as on your own between sessions. Psychotherapy has benefits and risks. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. However, research shows psychotherapy benefits people who go through it. It leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reduction in distress.

Psychotherapy is an in-depth review of where your life has been and where your life is going. Understanding how your history affects your emotions and current relationships gives you the chance to change long-standing patterns. Desired outcomes will be compared to actual outcomes to determine a change in thinking patterns. Steps are identified toward behavior change that otherwise has been elusive.

My approach to psychotherapy starts with a careful assessment of the problem and your attempts to solve them. We will look at your whole life, your health, your relationships with loved ones, your relationship with God. Sometimes, we are living life out of balance or we are going through difficult transitions and we just need some coaching on how to get ourselves unstuck. Other times solutions seem much more difficult to find. I can help with both but I am especially committed to finding creative solutions for those times when that problem just doesn't seem to go away no matter how hard you try.

Choices! Research shows that we are more likely to change when we have choices. Together we will identify research-based interventions that can help you cope more effectively with the problems you are experiencing and help you feel better. Psychiatrist Irving Yalom said "It's the relationship that heals!" I firmly believe this and will work with you to form a relationship that feels safe - one that helps you tap into your own wisdom and strengths. You will become more familiar with who you are and will allow yourself to live your life more freely and more fully.

I strongly believe in psychotherapy, because I have counseled hundreds of people in group and individual therapy in this way. Many people have the belief that they often just "need to manage my medications" and that meeting just to talk with a counselor is a waste of time. People need to talk and to process their 'story', that is, where they've been, where they are now, and where they want to go in their life. Medication only helps with physiological issues and brain chemistry; psychotherapy gives a person context, and helps them make better, more informed decisions about their life and gives them information (not medication) to make wise life decisions.

I believe our current struggles often have a link to past struggles. I work with clients to understand the both/and. What are the current challenges and struggles that you want to improve or change and in doing that how is it link to the past. In other words what previous distortions or hurts are causing the person current struggles and how to they build current health to grow and heal from previous hurts.

Psychotherapy in Greek means "healing of the human spirit". Sometimes people just need a little support and they find their way. Other times therapy can help individuals work towards facilitating a positive change and improve ones quality of life. Many individuals report that they are able to increase their self awareness and self understanding. This leads them to self growth and an improved way to manage their particular situation. Therapy can help individuals who struggle with a wide range of symptoms and conditions such as depression, anxiety, relationships issues and problems, stressful life events and internalized trauma.

Psychotherapy?! What a funny word. I am a psychotherapist, NOT a psycho therapist! :) Others call me a counselor or "the talk lady." People who find me tend to be parents who are looking for support for their children. I use research based therapies that bring empowerment, positive behavior changes, and less frustration and stress. I specialize in youth aged 3-25 who have experienced some level of stress like a divorce, bullying, self-harm, sexting or abuse. Youth nowadays have a different mentality, and I also support parents in understanding and connecting with their children. If you call for a free phone consult and I don't think we are a good match, I will give you multiple referrals.
