Therapy Approach

I believe that therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery and that you are an active participant in this process. I also believe it is my job to create a safe relational environment to help you gain self-awareness and develop coping skills for the issues that you bring to therapy. I use a variety of insight-oriented therapeutic approaches including relational, psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive behavioral to determine what treatment is most effective to meet your unique needs.

 

I have a variety of areas of specialty including: 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationships 

  • Family Concerns

  • Grief and Loss

  • Work-Life Balance

  • Coping Skills

  • Behavioral Issues

  • Life Transitions

  • LGBTQ 

  • Health Concerns

  • Self-Esteem

  • Stress Management

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Work and Career 

  • Wellness and Self Care

During your initial session we will go over your intake forms and I will ask background questions to help me understand your current needs. The intake session will last between 45 and 60 minutes. A treatment plan will be developed after this session to address the issues your are presenting and create goals for your therapy.

Therapy typically occurs once a week until you feel you have made progress toward your goals. At any time we can discuss frequency of therapy and whether to meet more or less than once a week based on need, time, and finances.
