Working with me, you will be able to freely process thoughts and feelings you have sealed deep inside of you. I will listen attentively and with respect and empathy. You will be heard. Together we will identify the sources and meanings of your thoughts and feelings. We will define your current values, needs, and wants, strengths, and weaknesses. I will share tools that will enable you to accept your authentic self and confidently go forward in life with a new perspective. Our work together will greatly increase your awareness of your authentic self and the sources of relational issues. You will gain a high self worth and appreciate new realizations and behavioral tools that will bring happiness and peace.
My approach is to first identify who you are; your strengths, weaknesses, values, needs, wants, and desires. We then identify the problem you want to address and your goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to increase awareness of your thought process because your thoughts affect your feelings and behaviors. CBT has proven effective for most problems with individuals, couples, and families. We will discuss tools to use to take control of your thoughts and learn new behaviors. I also utilize Solution Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy in certain circumstances. We will spend time working on communication and anger management skills for better relationships. We will discuss proven, effective parenting skills and best parenting practices for children of all ages.
