Individual therapy is offered in-office or via video or telephone session. Some concerns which may be addressed individual therapy are:
- Relational Concerns
- Life Transitions
- Physical or Verbal Abuse
- History of Sexual Abuse
- Sexual Harassment
- Cancer or Life-Threatening Illness
- Adult child of an alcoholic or addict
- Adult children of a narcissist
- Interracial Relationship Stresses
- GLBTQ concerns
- Stress due to other cultural biases
After participation in counseling, many clients report:
- A greater sense of wholeness, confidence, and balance.
- Improvement in the quality of relationships.
- Having developed new skills which enhance coping with stress, change and challenge.
- Moving away from old dysfunctional patterns of thinking, feeling or behaving.
- Healing from loss or old hurts.
- An increase in creative endeavors.
Also, recent research seems to indicate that psychotherapeutic work can actually support “rewiring” the brain to newer more productive ways of feeling and thinking. This may occur as a result of traditional talk therapy. However, I am also trained in “Brainspotting”, a therapeutic technique found especially helpful with trauma or “stuckness”.
I believe that most of us have within us the ability to make the changes we desire, but can really benefit from having an advocate to the process of (emotional, behavioral or cognitive) change and new skills acquisition. Together, my clients and I identify obstacles to growth, and walk the journey of removing them. Sometimes this involves working in some ‘tender’ areas. Because I believe that each of our genetics, personalities and histories are different, I try to treat each client as a unique individual and to work from a diverse, integrated, theoretical framework. All clients are treated with the utmost respect and compassion. All races, religions, sexual orientations, sizes, etc. are welcomed into my work. There is no greater satisfaction in my life than seeing my clients become more whole and joyful!
