Psychotherapy or individual counseling is generally conducted in individual sessions for people over the age of approximately 18. Psychotherapy is the generic term counselors use when they want to help people overcome symptoms such as anxiety, anger, depression, general unhappiness, unfulfillment, stress, worry, fear, etc. Some of the counselors at the Mars & Venus Counseling Center are psychotherapists who are well-versed in the many forms and techniques of counseling for the treatment of a myriad of presenting issues. We, as well as most psychotherapists, consider ourselves eclectic.

I individualize therapy to each client, and will look for your strengths- not just your weaknesses. I believe in a comprehensive approach to therapy, and mix aspects of many different therapy styles. I especially enjoy working with mothers, children and adolescents, and combine my "clinical" knowledge with real life experience. I never suggest medication as a first stop, as I would rather really give you something- by helping you adopt new thought processes and coping skills.

Psychotherapy When people enter therapy they want to make changes and I take that striving very seriously. My approach depends on the patient with whom I am working, but a belief I always hold is that people heal and change when they cultivate a healthy internal voice that can guide them through the challenges of their past, present, and future. Some very personal things are talked about in therapy and I feel it is important that a patient feel safe to talk about such things. Therefore, a patient should talk about personal material only when they decide they are ready and that patient and therapist should work together to make the space safe for such conversations.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Worrying excessively or having difficulty concentrating? Are you adjusting to a major life change (becoming a parent, loss of a job, a death or divorce) and speaking with friends and family is not enough? Do you find that you are held back by negative behavior patterns or did you have a traumatic experience that is impacting your ability to enjoy life and achieve your goals? Psychotherapy can help you to work through your problems, develop new coping strategies and feel better about yourself and your life. I provide a safe and non-judgemental setting to speak about whatever is on your mind. I tailor my approach to the unique needs of each individual I treat.
