  • About Therapy

    The word “therapy” can conjure up a lot of misinformation and stereotypes. Psychotherapy is a treatment process based on the collaborative relationship between an individual and a psychologist. The psychologist, or therapist, provides a safe, supportive environment where you can talk openly without fear of judgement. You won’t be lying on a couch like in the movies, rather, you’ll meet in a comfortable office with a therapist who cares about you and your individual progress. Most therapy is one-on-one, although some therapists do work with couples, families, and groups. 

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy, sometimes called psychotherapy or individual counseling, is a collaborative process that facilitates positive change and helps people lead happier, more fulfilling lives. Therapy can help you to work through issues that have been bothering you and keeping you from emotional well being and health. I provide an open and non-judgmental environment where you are free to be yourself and speak openly.

    One of my goals in therapy is to help you explore problems so that together we can find ways to overcome them. I will help you learn skills and ways to cope that can help you be happier and feel more connected in your relationships. Individual therapy is effective with adults, teens, and children for a wide variety of issues. Please contact me today to see how I can help you achieve your goals.

    Couples Therapy

    Relationship counseling is a process that helps couples work together to improve emotional closeness, intimacy, and communication. One goal in relationship counseling is for us to work as a team to help you and your partner overcome the problems that may have come up in your relationship. Relationships provide great potential for happiness love and closeness, but when things are not functioning well they also can be the source of heartache, grief, and anger.

    I can help your relationship by teaching communication skills, helping you understand your relationship styles, and providing training on healthy conflict resolution. This type of counseling is effective for a wide array of partnerships including married couples, individuals who are living together or are engaged, people in LGBTQ partnerships, or people dating who are thinking of taking their relationship to the next level.

    Relationship counseling is also effective for non-romantic relationships such as parents and children, roommates, siblings, and adults who wish to repair or improve their relationship with their parents. It’s never too late to improve a relationship, but the sooner you get into couples counseling the better. Please contact me today to see how I can help.

    Career Counseling

    Career development is a lifelong process that has a major impact on individual health and relationships. Many people spend a great deal of time at work or school, so having a enjoyable work/school life can be an important part of leading a happy and fulfilling life. Career counseling can help you with career transitions, deciding on a career path, or picking a major for study.

    Many factors influence career decisions including values, interests, personality style, financial circumstances, relationships, abilities, and background. Whether you are trying to decide on a career path or are dealing with a difficult career transition I can give you the knowledge and skills you need to make a good decision.

    As your career counselor, I will:

    • Help you figure out who you are and what you want out of your education, your career, and your life.

    • Be someone for you to talk to about your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and concerns about your career and educational choices, who will help you sort out, organize, and make sense of your thoughts and feelings.

    • Help you identify the factors influencing your career development, and help you assess your interests, abilities, and values.

    • Help you locate resources and sources of career information.

    • Help you to determine next steps and develop a plan to achieve your goals.
