My approach is heartfelt, direct, genuine, and above all down-to-earth. My theoretical foundations are largely drawn from the perspectives of Jungian and Relational Psychologies . While theory is important, remaining humble and authentic with my clients are the cornerstones of my philosophy in therapy.
Adult Individual Therapy: We start with the here and now. Then we begin looking to our relationships, personal beliefs, feelings, and behaviors to redefine ourselves and construct happier, healthier, balanced lives and futures. While many times a mixture of coaching and collaborative problem-solving techniques are used in individual therapy, this process of truly getting to �know yourself� not only helps to create change in the present, but also creating 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.
Child Therapy: Working with children who are struggling with issues related to divorce, blended-families, grief/loss, low self-esteem, anxiety, parentification, and codependency. A few techniques I use with children are expressive, art, and other types of play therapy. Play Therapy provides a way for children to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, non-intrusive, healing process. This same technique can help a child learn new ways of seeing themselves and others.
Adolescent Therapy: Building rapport and gaining trust are very important elements to my approach to therapy in general and even more crucial to my approach with teens. Whether the issues are related to depression, trauma, stress, or major transitions, helping a teen uncover his/her sense of self, find their voice, and a means of effectively communicating this voice can offer relief not only for teens, but for the entire family as well.
