“My therapeutic approach is down-to-earth, direct, and whole-hearted. While I am a straightforward and actively engaged therapist, remaining humble and authentic with my clients are cornerstones to my philosophy. From individual to couple or family concerns, my goal is to help separate out the symptoms from the underlying issue. It is here deep change can begin to occur.”
Adult Individual Therapy: We start with the here and now. Then we begin looking to our relationships, beliefs, feelings, dreams, as well as other, sometimes unknown parts of our psyche to examine and begin to redefine ourselves; constructing happier, healthier, balanced lives. While many times a mixture of collaborative problem-solving and therapeutic techniques are used, this process of truly getting to “know yourself” not only helps to create change in the present, but also creates lasting change for the future.
Couples Therapy: Like a fingerprint, every relationship has its own unique print or balance. So many issues can disrupt our relationship’s balance: affairs, addictions, ex-partners, blended families, grief/loss, and major life transitions just to name a few. These, and many other stresses, can then create secondary issues that can further push us off balance. Sometimes we need to reconstruct the very foundation of our relationship to find our balance, while other times minor tune-ups are needed. Together we will help your relationship communicate more effectively, clarify and express needs, learn to hear, accept and accommodate each other, build trust, and recover intimacy; bringing balance to your relationship.
