Psychotherapy

In therapy, we work together to understand problems and make plans for fixing them. My focus is helping you build a life worth living, a life that allows you to meet your goals and enjoy the highest possible quality of life at work, in relationships, and within yourself.

I believe in psychotherapy that is informed by the latest scientific research and targets the way you think, the way you feel, and the actions you take. The focus of our work together is on building skills and gaining mastery while taking immediate steps to improve how you feel and put an end to suffering.


Treatment Overview

People seek treatment to get help. According to the American Psychological Association, nearly one-third of all American adults have received mental health treatment in the past two years. The inspiration for starting therapy is as unique as the individuals who seek therapy, but commonly include:

>Support and Coping: Loss is a common reason for seeking treatment. Therapy provides a safe, supportive place for you to talk about grief, adjustment to physical illness, the end of a relationship, job loss and transition, or any change in life circumstances that can cause distress.


>Growth and Self-Exploration: Many people come to therapy to gain a deeper and richer understanding of self. You may want to better understand your past, learn more about your pattern of behavior or examine your choices. Therapy can provide compassionate, effective guidance as you explore issues related to career, relationship, and personal goals.

>Emotional Difficulties: Many people struggle with balancing emotions. Therapy is an outstanding venue for learning the critical emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that are required to build a life worth living and ending chronic, out of control emotions that lead to problem behaviors such as substance abuse, eating problems, or self-harming.

>Communication: Many people come to therapy seeking help with relationships. Individual, couples, or family therapy can help you address a common issue: communication problems and difficulty resolving conflicts. A psychologist highly trained in interpersonal effectiveness can help you to communicate your needs and feelings constructively and resolve conflicts with your loved ones.

>Psychological disorders: People struggling with diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, PTSD, etc. can benefit from therapy. A psychologist can help you target a disorder and plan robust treatment for improving your quality of life and decreasing the symptoms can bring suffering.
