Good therapy is the pursuit of meaningful and lasting change. It is the identification of patterns of thought and behavior which are either no longer effective or downright destructive. It is the creation and development of reliable skills which lead us in the direction of health, confidence, and increased acceptance of self.
Good therapy is always a collaboration between client and therapist. It requires creativity, energy and most importantly the development of trust. It appreciates the unique perspectives of each individual and measures progress by how closely it mirrors the personal values and aspirations of the client.
My approach is influenced by training and experience in strengths based, cognitive-behavioral, solution focused and positive psychology. I offer help with issues related to anxiety, depression, phase of life, addictions, interpersonal, occupational and marital.
I have worked in the mental health field for over fifteen years.
