Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
There are times in everyone's life where a little help can go a long way. Brief counseling is an approach to therapy that is focused on symptom reduction and problem solving. It can help you manage stress, negotiate transitions, increase resilience, help you develop new coping skills, and build insight and awareness. On a deeper level, effective therapy can help you increase life satisfaction and create substantive and lasting change. It can deepen and broaden relationships and minimize struggle and suffering. Whether your experience is of frustration in problem-solving, persisting sadness, feeling overwhelmed, excessive anxiety or worry, difficulty regulating anger, or any other pattern that causes you distress, psychotherapy is an excellent way for you to gain understanding, insight and control over your life. I provide a comfortable, nonjudgmental, supportive and collaborative environment. We work together to understand your circumstances, clearly articulate your values and develop goals that speak to your values and passions. With goals in place, I bring my expertise in counseling psychology to help you develop insight and understanding into your patterned behaviors and habits, then help you negotiate the challenges you face, and develop skills to create meaning and positive change in your life. I work with adults, children, and couples. I use several evidence-based and research-supported approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and existential therapy. In addition to general psychotherapy, I also have advanced training and experience in trauma-focused therapy protocols including EMDR and prolonged-exposure therapy. Trauma-focused therapy is used to integrate trauma that has occurred in your life including acute and single-incident trauma (combat, an accident, a diagnosis, a rape, a death) and chronic and historic trauma (domestic violence, childhood abuse, ritual abuse).

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
