Feeling stuck? Indecisive? Challenged by making changes? Unsure how to proceed but want your life to get better? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this might be a good opportunity to make changes in your life and to help you feel more empowered. The goal being to help you create lasting, positive changes in your life and get the clarity that you need in those situations that prove challenging and make you feel overwhelmed emotionally.
In my 11 years of practice, as a marriage and couples therapist, I have helped numerous couples overcome their relationship challenges, rekindle the romance, and get their relationship back on track. Whether you are experiencing struggles with addictions, infidelity (emotional, physical, financial), parenting, sexual, or communication challenges, I am here to help. My work as a therapist also addresses issues such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, addictions, or emotional eating.
Working together, we formulate and goals to help you become healthy and back doing what you love doing the most - living your life on your terms!
How to figure all of this out? First, ask yourself what type of therapist would be a good fit for you? The fit and therapeutic alliance is the key to successful therapy. My approach to therapy is creating an open, direct, honest, empathetic, and engaging environment. Creating the necessary dialogue and a therapeutic relationship that will help you get to where you are to where you want to be - a primary goal. Working collaboratively, we find solutions to your problems and work through the emotions that you are struggling with. Though I recognize this is no easy task, this is achievable!
My approach includes techniques inherent in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. We address underlying issues and work towards "connecting the dots" in your life to implement necessary changes, help make sense of the past and the present, and learn new strategies for leading a more fulfilling and healthier life.
I often find that people feel they are the only ones going through a particular experience, but they are not. Our experiences and feelings are predominately universal.
Remember: This is your experience, your story, your life. Make it count.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I wasn't one that took a traditional path to becoming a psychologist - a path that started off in psychology and remained in that field, pursuing advanced degrees. My path was much more eclectic and it wasn't until I was in my late 30's that I truly recognized that becoming a psychologist was what to I wanted to do with my life. Not just a job, but a vocation, an opportunity to learn, educate others, but most importantly give back and help people become healthier. It has been an interesting and invaluable journey. The one defining piece that has been pivotal in my evolution to becoming a psychologist is a deeper understanding of the human condition and how I can help people become understand where they are and where they want to be. In essence, becoming their best version of themselves.It is my hope that my life experiences, both good and bad, because we all have them, will provide benefit to others.
