Therapy Style

Asking for help can be difficult. Realizing you need to make a change or “unlearn” some habits and ideas that are not serving you well can be a bold, brave move. I teach individual and couples skills to help them through overwhelming feelings and make lifestyle changes to interrupt those destructive cycles. Whether you need to process traumatic thoughts or knock down those mental barriers that have been holding you back from your own personal goals and relationships, I would like to help you explore those needs.

My specialties include working with young adults, children, women’s issues, couples counseling, family planning, premarital counseling, prenatal support, postpartum, parenting strategies, juvenile delinquency, social anxiety, self-esteem issues, communication/ relationships issues, family related changes, and conflict, transitions in life, and crisis.

It’s often the small habits we are less aware of that affect our overall discomfort on a regular basis eventually leading to a spectrum of symptoms related to depression and anxiety.
