I am committed to providing clients excellent therapeutic services. I will assist in defining the goals you would like to achieve and to identify barriers in your life that may make success more difficult. I will help you to find solutions to problems and to develop peaceful resolutions to conflicted situations. Drawing upon my experience, education and training, I will help you better understand yourself; to recognize and accentuate your gifts, talents and abilities, and to work on those issues that create barriers to your success.
I am skilled in Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and use this model to help clients define what their goals for counseling are. Within this context, I also use Cognitive Behavioral interventions (CBT) and Family Systems theory to guide my work.
"Parent Coaching" is another way of fostering healthy family interactions. I guide parents in creating therapeutic changes within their own family. This technique works particularly well with teens who are resistant to participating in therapy, or with very young children who wouldn't benefit from traditional psychotherapy.
