I offer psychotherapy and counseling for individuals of all ages (children, teens, and adults) experiencing a host of different issues. I work with people that have mental health disorders (i.e. major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.) as well as people who are healthy but are looking to improve their lives in some way. I believe that every person can benefit from psychotherapy, no matter how small or large their issues may be.
In addition to individual work, I also work with couples who are looking to improve their relationships. From couples who are just dating and thinking of marriage, to couples who have been married for years and are on the brink of divorce, I aim to help them learn better communication styles and practices to either develop trusting and loving relationships or revive their once healthy and intimate relationships.
Sometimes the entire family needs to be involved in the therapy process in order for real change to occur. I work with families of all different makeups to help them understand how their relationship patterns may be detrimental to their well-being and teach them healthier and more adaptive ways to relate to each other.
