My intention is to help you become more engaged, effective and satisfied with your life.
If you find it difficult to come into the office, you might want to explore Distance Counseling.
I do not participate in Managed Care through insurance companies. I can provide a receipt to you should you wish to seek reimbursement. If you want to understand why, read my recent blog.
Here are a few core beliefs about the work I do:
You have the innate ability to live a wonder-full and satisfying life.
Sometimes life experiences can throw you off balance, disturbing your relationships and distorting the way you experience life. I am here to support you as you find your way and create the life you desire. We can work together to find clarity and new perspectives. The result can be greater calmness, peace of mind and more satisfaction in moving towards what you truly want.
Your concerns are affecting you now and you want to stop suffering.
My primary focus is on the present and providing you practical tools that will reduce your suffering and promote positive and healthy change. You will learn to focus your energy on what is most important to you. You can access your power to take charge of the direction and content of your life.
One size doesn’t fit all.
The therapeutic process we’ll use to address your concerns will be tailored to your uniqueness – your specific goals and needs, personality, situation, relationships, background and comfort level. Therapy is about exploration and discovery of yourself as well as resolving issues and creating a satisfying life.
You have the power to create lasting and meaningful change.
You will be able to put the skills and strategies that you learn into action, positively impacting your relationships, work and outlook. As much as we’d sometimes like for someone else to do it for us, truly lasting change comes when we discover and do for ourselves. You can manage change and conflict with greater ease and clarity, with less stress and more confidence.
