Individual counseling is helpful in many circumstances. You may be facing an ongoing mental health concern such as depression or anxiety, or you may have experienced trauma in the past. Perhaps you feel disorganized and chronically struggling to stay focused. You may want to find more meaning in your relationships with partners, your career, or your family.
Individual counseling provides a space for you to address your concerns with professional support. My approach to counseling maintains that you are the expert in your own life, and that you may benefit from someone pointing out patterns, highlighting strengths, and posing questions for reflection.
Couples & Family Counseling
Families face many challenges in today's world. Family counseling provides a supportive space to address issues such as communication problems, parenting, the addition or loss of family members, honesty, stress from transitions or financial burdens. In addition to helping families work through problems, family counseling enhances relationships and opens up lines of communication.
When working with parents and children, I rely heavily on Collaborative Problem Solving. This research-based model supports the social, emotional, and behavioral development of children. When working with couples, I utilize an eclectic approach, incorporating attachment theory, somatic experiencing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and foundations from the Gottman Method.
