You want things to change, but you've tried without much success. I will explore your problems with a new mindset and lend my skills in observation and asking specific questions to help you find other options to address your situation. Together we can uncover your strengths and push through obstacles that have kept you from learning and growing. Come ready to do some work. My aim is to provide skills for improved coping, while you find strength to move your life forward.
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. Healthier decisions are possible 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.
