People will do anything no matter how absurd to avoid facing their own souls. - Carl Jung
We human beings are creatures of habit and our negative experiences are more potent and reinforcing than our positive experiences. Thus, our lives can or have become disrupted, and we squander our energy in old patterns of feelings and behaviors. This leaves us depleted, disconnected and devoid of our abilities to be creative, feel connected to others and most importantly connected to ourselves. It does not have to continue! I can help you reverse the negative spiral of stress, past memories, recent disappointments that have lead to feelings of depression, anxiety and/or created relationship dysfunction or job dysfunction?
My goal is to help you increase your understanding of yourself and your struggles, alleviate emotional pain, and help you lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
My approach to therapy values your unique needs and abilities and I'll work with you to establish goals that are attainable. My style has been described as warm, authentic, thoughtful and dedicated. I am practical and results oriented, while remaining grounded in evidenced based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology and Motivation Interviewing Therapy to name a few. I have been in practice 20+ years working with a wide variety of individuals, couples and families.
It's easier than you think to start living in the direction of more positive energy, fulfilling life experiences, and full-on creativity.
Therapy is an investment in yourself, and you are worth it!
