You want things to change, yet you've tried without much improvement. I wish to explore your problems with interest and lend my skills in observation, asking questions and providing feedback to help you find better options to address your situation, or make specific changes. We can uncover your strengths and push through obstacles that have kept you from learning and growing. I will help you by using a blend of various theoretical approaches. Come ready to do some work. My goal is to identify effective coping skills while you create the changes that will work best for you.
My approach to psychotherapy stems from the belief that individuals need to be recognized and heard, and that people can positively change. I believe that self awareness and acceptance are imperative to growth and maturity. Making healthier decisions come more instinctively with someone guiding you through the first important steps.
"At times, the only thing you can change is your perspective." If that statement resonates with you, then I might be a good fit for you. I enjoy counseling creatives (artists, writers and musicians) and those who live with, and love them.
