I know that people are confused by the lack of control
they have over their emotions and relationships. I will give you the tools to strongly
influence the way you feel and act. This will make a difference in your self esteem and
your important relationships. My strength is helping people accomplish this as quickly as
possible. Individuals, couples and families that I work with often feel a great deal is
accomplished in the first session or first few weeks.
People can and do make significant
progress after the first session in therapy.
Clients often remark how surprised they are at feeling relaxed and hopeful on the first
session. I work with each person, couple and family as unique individuals. I consider our
work together collaborative as I learn how to help you from your experience and your
goals, not a pre-conceived idea or judgment.
I am a licensed professional with 19 years experience but also a parent, jazz pianist, and
practice meditation. What do these things have to do with therapy?
They have taught me that you move faster by slowing down. It has aided my ability to help
people get in touch with themselves and reach solutions to their problems. Life and
professional experience has taught me patience, and the ability to guide people in a
caring, yet efficient manner. Therefore, I will not misuse your valuable time helping you
with anxiety, family, marriage and substance abuse problems. My approach is solution
focused, letting go of the past and not fearing the future. I also utilize clinical
hypnosis when applicable, finding it a valuable tool for anxiety and other disorders.
I will help you accept yourself; identify your abilities and reasonable goals to start
moving forward from the first session. Call or email me for an appointment.
