Psychotherapy and Counseling Services

My approach is primarily Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). However, I integrate other approaches such as Psychodynamic theory and Family Systems. At times, therapy will be directed towards learning to cope and successfully manage chronic conditions such as depressive disorders and anxiety disorders. Other times therapy may be to gain personal growth, healthier relationships, and/or self-awareness. Many times clients are in need of support and guidance during various life transitions/stressors such as dating, marriage, divorce, or pregnancy.
