PSYCHOTHERAPY
 
Life presents challenges to everyone.  When the road is difficult a helping hand can provide much needed support.  Working with a licensed therapist can help people to meet life challenges as well as provide a positive experience for personal growth.  The therapeutic journey is an opportunity to enhance self- understanding and satisfaction and lead to a fuller, more enjoyable life.  Feeling more self assured, improving self-esteem, enhancing communication, relationship and social skills, reducing depression and anxiety are goals that individuals often realize through psychotherapy, as well as a deeper satisfaction with body, mind and spirit.
 
I provide support, insight, and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  I integrate complementary methods and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person.  With respect and understanding, I work with individuals, families, and couples to help build strengths and attain personal growth.
Treatment modalities include focused short- term intervention, insight oriented therapy, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral approaches.
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues and have experience providing help with the following:
