I specialize in a Reality Therapy approach to address the emotional and behavioral issues of children (ages 8 to 12), teenagers, and adults. I specialize in helping individuals and families learn the skills of self-monitoring, self-evaluation, and self-control. Whether you are troubled by persistent irritating problems, or have issues that erode the very foundation of your well-being: from anger problems to anxiety, from social skills deficits to depression, from interpersonal relationship conflicts to crises of identity, there are answers to be found. Therapy is about learning to make choices that truly improve lives and increase happiness.
I believe therapy is an exploration of an individual's inner thoughts and feelings. It's a personal adventure, sometimes familiar and comfortable, sometimes alien and scary. The goal is to create a map that guides us to a place of happiness, purpose, and peace, within ourselves, and with others.
Why Reality Therapy? RT is a no nonsense approach to problem-solving. We deal with the way things actually are in life at the moment, and focus on helping people make positive responses - mentally, emotionally, and behaviorally - to the other people and situations in life that they don't control.
