Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Tired of knowing what the problem is, but not knowing how to solve it? I have helped many people recognize their true potential while helping them overcome their emotional difficulties. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy which has a strong science and evidence base with over 375 studies demonstrating effectiveness for depression, anxiety and a wide range of problems. With this technique, we address changing thought processes in order to change behaviors. I look forward to helping you explore practical methods to help you through difficult times. In addition, I help my clients delve into understanding how their past experiences may be directly connected to some of their current emotional roadblocks. As we discover the correlation of how their past may be effecting their present state of mind, we can work on healing deeper emotional wounds.”
