In your therapy sessions with me we will focus on helping you learn new ways of coping and expanding your perspective to live a good life.

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative and innovative. As a humanistic psychologist, I use evidence-based treatment to offer what I needed most when I was struggling with my son's addiction and suicide . . . compassionate, non-judgmental support and strategies. I am skilled in crisis intervention and work with high-risk/high-conflict individuals and families. I refer to a vast network of addiction and psychiatric treatment facilities throughout the U.S. I am often the last hope when other approaches have failed.

Psychotherapy is just a fancy word for the process of healing that goes on in a Counseling office. When clients come to my office, I show hospitality and offer something to drink. We have soft music playing and just begin to talk about the areas of interest that have brought them in. From that first session, I determine what is wrong and what needs to happen in order to facilitate the change my clients are hoping for. As a matter of fact, I write out two goals for each client from what they've talked about, each with 3 or 4 objectives to reach those goals! I guide you and hold you accountable as needed until you reach these goals. Come on in and let me help you do the same!!!

How does Psychodynamic Psychotherapy differ from other kinds of therapy? Otherwise known as Insight Therapy, we will explore the different ways that your mind (conscious, pre-conscious, unconscious) is thinking, and causing you to feel, and therefore behave (inside and outside the self), and how / why that may be problematic for you. We may look at early developmental stages and struggles, and how they may have formed patterns in you life. We will look at how your experiences have shaped your values, wants, needs, and boundaries (weak or rigid). We will explore your pain, but also your hopes and dreams, and help you to learn new skills, identify goals and take the steps to achieve them!

My approach is eclectic, taking what is effective from various approaches of psychology to help the client to heal. My approah is candid and direct which often helps cutting through dysfunction. Dysfunction stops the flow of love between individuals; to be functional again means restoring a relationship back to what it's main purpose was in the first place - to love, support and to to embrace so growth can occur. Therapy doesn't begin until an individual takes responsibility for what they may be doing that is unhealthy without blaming shifting. Discovering what is co-dependency may also be an excellent tool. I also help client to learn about Old Brain/ New Brain concepts.

Many compare our emotions and/or history to an onion that needs to be peeled away layer by layer. There's some merit to that, and both involve tears at times. Fortunately, for people who delve in to gain a deeper understanding of how they've gotten to where they are, eventually the tears fade away and the new understanding and insights lead to a more satisfying life.

We employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve couple and family relationships. This is done through exploring feelings, motivation and conflicts to help the client improve conscious understanding. We also help the client to increase self esteem and move life and relationships in a positive direction.

My work as a therapist is based in a Cognitive Behavioral approach to treatment and is supported with strategies and ideas from Dialectical Behavioral theory. Both forms of intervention are based in the idea that change is created as a result of looking at your thinking processes and behaviors and identify how they influence your current state and symptoms. Strategies are developed in treatment to help the client to reduce their symptoms. I believe that therapy is effective when one utilizes the strategies outside of the therapy office. In my opinion, 75% of the work is done outside of therapy and only 25% is done in the session. My role in therapy is to educate and support the client.

My goal is to help you gain insight into how the problems developed and then learn problem-solving skills and coping techniques. I help you learn to grow from your experience and lead a more pleasurable life.

The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung wrote, "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are." This might not be the same as becoming, for example, the one our parents expect us to be. To build a life on the expectations of others is to play a role. We can try so hard to play it well that we neglect caring for ourselves. Indeed, we may take pride in always thinking of others, never of ourselves. At some point we may realize that this is not working out, but alternatives are not clear. Life feels burdensome. Working with clients in therapy, I help to identify and embrace personal strengths. Doing so sets a strong foundation for choices that reflect authentic values.
