Here are a few examples of what we achieve in therapy:

  • Gain insight into yourself and the problems you are facing. You will learn what is preventing you from handling these problems effectively.
  • Discover your own strengths and identify what techniques have helped you successfully resolve problems in the past. 
  • Identify and change unproductive behavior patterns and emotional responses.
  • Learn effective ways to solve problems in your personal life, professional life, family or marriage.
  • Enhance your communication skills to improve your interpersonal relationships.
  • Develop coping strategies to deal with anxieties, from everyday stress to panic attacks or phobias.
  • Learn to manage illness, a clinical diagnosis, grief, or anger.
  • Establish goals for change and tackle any barriers to change as they arise.
  • Each session, you will learn new skills to implement at home.

Family Therapy can be used to strengthen families by providing a neutral environment to discuss difficult issues, improve communication, develop discipline strategies, foster mutual respect and more.

How Can Counseling Help You?

Whether you engage in individual, family or marriage counseling, you will leave with a deeper understanding of the issues you are facing and how you can create change. The insight you gain and the skills you acquire in therapy can be taken home with you. They can be used to improve your current situation,  as well as help you handle difficult situations in the future.  

Couples Therapy can be utilized to improve communication, address trust and intimacy issues, identify triggers to anger and fighting , resolve parenting conflicts and much more.

Counseling provides a safe, confidential, and supportive environment that enables you to identify what is preventing you from leading a more meaningful life. We will work together to understand and resolve the challenges you face. Your treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs. Some people just need short-term support while others are facing major life transitions that require a longer course of treatment. Because my treatment approach is solution-focused,  we will work on getting you the results you want without wasting your time. Your life can be different. You don't have to be filled with frustration, anxiety or anger. You can leave counseling with the tools and skills you need to make your life one that you enjoy living.
