I focus on individual strengths and needs while building and working towards collaborative treatment goals. It is my belief that positive change can occur through encouragement, honesty, commitment, and setting realistic expectations of self and others. I offer you a safe and nurturing environment in which to process life's challenges using best practices.
My relational and down-to-earth approach to counseling combined with my training, knowledge, and experience allows me to provide effective outpatient, individualized, psychological services. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.
Modes of therapy are important but my relationship with you, understanding your issues within the context of your life and learning what you need is crucial. If you feel validated and heard, you are more likely to make positive and healthy change! The focus of treatment is helping you become healthy! The path to getting there will be different for you from others and my experience with incorporating the right therapeutic techniques increase positive outcomes.
I know it can be scary or nerve-racking to share your story with others especially if you feel embarrassed, ashamed, humiliated or any other uncomfortable emotion. You are not alone! I want you to know Therapy In The Garden is A Safe Place! My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life and becoming emotionally healthy. I am committed to providing you the best care possible.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, you can recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Through counseling and treatment you can overcome these symptoms and be guided through the process of grief and healing.
Counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both individuals and is a supportive, judgement free place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship. I use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my practice.
