For Adults

For Adults

Are you wishing for change but don’t know how to get there?

In seeking a therapist I expect that you have acknowledged to yourself that you are unhappy either with how this challenging world has treated you, or with some of the ways that you have responded to it. You’re wishing that something could be different, but you’re not sure how to get there.

How I work 

As an adult client, you can expect that I will start by listening carefully. I first want to understand your fears, joys, triumphs, challenges, and most importantly, your core values. 

Once I have a sense of both who you are and who you want to be, I listen for the coping strategies or life lessons that you have relied on to get you where you are. Our pain can often be located in the gap between who we aspire to be and the choices we make that are in conflict with these core values. 

I use my 25 plus years experience and advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Child Psych., and Family Systems Theory to help my clients develop new life skills. We identify and celebrate the existing skills that are working for you, and let go of those that are not really helping you meet your life goals. 

What to expect in treatment

  • I will listen carefully and craft a therapeutic response that is unique to your needs. 
  • I will be challenging and directive but will always support your work with honesty, humor, and warmth. 
  • If you work hard and commit to the process you will experience growth and change. My greatest joy as a therapist is to see my clients experience progress towards their life goals.
