My Approach

 

My approach is best summed up by my personal motto regarding therapy:

DON’T SPEND MORE TIME IN THERAPY DISCUSSING YOUR CHILDHOOD THAN IT TOOK TO LIVE IT!

I believe that therapy should not take years to overcome your pain, nor do I think you should spend years in therapy reliving past trauma.  Of course, the sooner you get help, the easier it will be to achieve positive results.  If you’re struggling with symptoms of depression, anxiety, binge eating or food addiction, please reach out for professional help and support.  Perhaps you need marriage counseling or family therapy.  You do not have to suffer, and there is effective treatment available. You may find relief from symptoms of depression or anxiety and a renewed sense of hope even after a few sessions.  If you are seeking help for parenting, divorce, or ADD/ADHD, therapy or coaching can be very efficient and effective and provide new coping skills and resources for your solution toolbox.

THE EMPHASIS IS ON RESULTS

My unique approach uses a combination of techniques and strategies to promote mental health and well-being.  We collaborate to find the solutions that best address the issues you face, whether it is depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, relationship issues, divorce, parenting concerns or eating disorders.  If you’re looking for an interactive and proactive approach with an emphasis on results, then this type of therapy may be a good fit for you.  If it’s not a good fit, I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, SOLUTION FOCUSED, LIFE COACHING, POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY

Sometimes potential clients ask specifically what type of approach I use.  My approach to therapy combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Life Coaching and Positive Psychology to help you achieve your goals.   As a team, we decide what to focus on and how long it will take, depending on your own needs and expectations.

I’ll help you regain control over your life, even if you’ve been struggling for years.  People often wait to seek help for issues relating to eating disorders, parenting problems or relationship issues, but these problems may get worse and sometimes result in crisis situations.  Please know that there is help available, and you don’t have to lie awake at night feeling alone and worrying about what will happen.

We work together to help you feel better, make healthier choices and move forward with your life.  We create a toolbox filled with handouts, strategies, resources, and problem solving solutions.  I will guide you step by step until you feel empowered and ready to “graduate.” You are always welcome to return for a “tune up” in the future if needed.
