Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
“Life is hard! Are you having trouble coping? Wondering about your direction and purpose in life? I am a psychotherapist who believes that during times of adversity there is incredible potential for personal growth. I provide a warm and caring environment where you can gain support and understanding regarding the issue/s you are facing. I can help you articulate YOUR goals and develop a plan for reaching them.

I work from a psychodynamic/humanistic perspective (What does this mean? Feel free to ask me). I have extensive experience in working with depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief. Areas of specialization include: couples counseling, eating disorders, career crisis, addiction/recovery and chronic/life threatening illnesses.

I focus on helping you reconnect with a sense of purpose and passion in living. I guide you to regain a sense of control and self confidence in your life.”

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. I focus on the particular circumstances presented, and help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented.
