Welcome : Taking A Step Towards Counseling Can Be Difficult
Reaching out can be a difficult task. We can question ourselves and struggle to get professional help we may need. However, once you do you will likely find you feel better about yourself for the courage it took to reach out. Most clients feel relief when they cross that bridge and make the call.
As a Marriage, Family and Child/Adolescent Therapist with over 25 years of counseling experience, I can confidentially say that crossing the bridge for help might be the most challenging for most people. Life is difficult, and each day we seem to get more challenges in work, home and relationships we are in. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life and find solid ground in the process, so you have more peace of mind. My approach to therapy is both a systemic (in relationships and interactional patterns with others) and cognitive-behavioral in nature to help you navigate a more peaceful place in life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Children and Teens have their help as well, tailoring to how they best learn through play techniques, art/sand and other forms that help them engage to grow both non-directive and directive play techniques. Self-Esteem can improve with therapy and goal oriented help.
For those who are struggling with relationship issues, marriage counseling can help you identify areas that are creating negative patterns and help you with improvements in communication, intimacy and open new paths to dialogue in key areas. Even marital affairs can potentially see repair through your hard work to achieve a new goals and build trust. All new clients seeking marriage counseling are encouraged to assess personal commitment to regular sessions and work required to improve relationship healing.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging life situation , personal anxiety or depression or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Congratulations on taking your first step for help. You will be glad you did.
