WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
I have been working in the therapeutic field for over 20 years providing an array of inpatient, home-based and outpatient services. I have experience treating children, adolescents and adults struggling with dysfunctional behavioral issues, substance abuse, depression, anxiety and emotional regulation, as well as mental health and trauma-related issues, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar. I am adept at customizing and integrating various therapeutic techniques and tools for my clients to aid them in being successful during their life journey. I am passionate about helping others reach their goals of living their best life possible.
My approach to counseling is using is primarily Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT); however, I use expressive therapy as well. CBT will help you become aware of your self-talk and how it impacts your thoughts and feelings. Once you become aware of those two things you are able to reframe from using those negative thoughts.
Expressive/play/art therapy allows people to become aware of what is going on with them through a different technique which at times can feel "safer" and is one of the best ways to work with children (though I use it with many of my adult clients as well).
