I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from trauma therapy to stress management, and beyond. I utilize a solution-focused/cognitive behavioral approach, meaning together in a safe, supportive and confidential environment we will talk about your struggles and your strengths, identify your goals and develop a plan to eliminate whatever is getting in the way of you living the life you want.
Sometimes when we experience trauma, whether it be cumulative or the result of a specific traumatic event or events, we have trouble moving past the trauma because of the way that we perceive the trauma. In therapy we will work together to identfy the misperceptions that might be getting in the way of your processing the trauma in a realistic/healthy way. In our work together these misperceptions or "cognitve distortions" will be identified, examined and corrected to allow you to have a more realistic interpretation of the event or situation which will allow you to move forward in a more healthy way.
Strength Based Approach
I also utilize a strength based approach. Although you may currently be struggling, I am sure that there have been times in your life where you have been successful, felt strong, and contributed in a positive way. In an authentic, comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I will help you recall those times and highlight your strengths in order to provide an opportunity for you to access the feelings associated with those successes and positive attributes to help you through more difficult times.
If you are injured, disabled or have other circumstances that make it difficult to travel to an in-office appointment, I offer mobile therapeutic services, when deemed appropriate. If you have questions about mobile services or any of the services I provide, please contact me and I can answer any questions you may have.
