I offer therapy to individuals, couples, and families, for difficulties ranging from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, to life events such as relationship conflict and career decisions. I provide short-term counseling for straightforward problems as well as in-depth therapy for longstanding struggles, and some of the issues I work with are detailed below.
Coming to therapy gives you a place where someone will listen without judging you and offer new ways of thinking about yourself and your problems. A therapist’s empathy and perspective can give you an opportunity to make real changes in your life, changes that help you become the person you want to be and accomplish the things you want to accomplish.
Individual therapy can help with most mood and relationship problems. It gives you the freedom to express your feelings and think about your life without worrying about being judged or disappointing someone. A therapist can support you while you make changes in the way you deal with other people in your life or how you react to situations.
Couples therapy is helpful for enhancing relationships as well as for resolving problems. Some couples have been together for many years when they seek counseling, while others have been together only a short while. Some couples need to focus primarily on communication, while others need to work most on too little intimacy or too much fighting. In couples therapy, both partners work on their contributions to difficulties in the relationship and they grow together.
