Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My “style” of therapy is one of being very genuine. I offer psychotherapy in a warm and friendly environment and often mix in humor with the work that I do. People’s needs are as varied and unique as are the different ways therapy can be approached. I tailor my approach to fit your specific requirements. However, there are certain basic beliefs that I hold. I believe that people come to me with something that they’ve been struggling with and they can’t see the solution because they’re in the middle of it. They get “stuck” in a story that defines them or something about them and they need help moving beyond that. I am very practical in the work that I do – I believe that therapy should address the issue(s) that has you “stuck” and you need to learn how to move forward; we all need to live and function in this world and we want to be happy! I help you move forward through a combination of education, cognitive behavioral interventions, active listening mixed with relaxation and respect for your personal goals.

About My Practice

Office Hours
My offices hours are typically Tuesday 12 - 8 Thursday 12 - 8 Saturday 1:30 - 5:30 Special appointments are available
Services
I provide a wide range of therapy and counseling to a diverse population. I work with people of all ages and from all walks of life. I work with individuals on a wide range of topics from life-transitions to more severe mental health issues. I work with couples who are struggling with their current relationship and also couples who have yet to make the commitment to marriage. I also work with families: new families that are just forming and long-standing families that are facing issues that they are not able to address in isolation. I offer Anger Management, in group or individual sessions and will be offering a Mens' group soon.
