It is normal to experience difficult times in our lives. But when worry and suffering become overpowering, it makes sense to seek the help of a professional. It is important to ascertain what kind of assistance would best suit your needs.
I have been working with individuals, couples and families for more than twenty years. And I have helped clients work through issues of anxiety, relationship difficulties, separation/divorce, grief, depression, addictions and many others.
Every client, couples, and family unit enters the therapeutic relationship with their own unique challenges. Because of this, I match the therapeutic approach that I feel will most likely result in practical and sustainable solutions. My approach to therapy blends psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness based principles and practices.
It is important to choose a therapist who has experience and expertise relating to your particular concerns. References can be useful.
