There are times when life feels overwhelming and causes us to feel stressed, anxious and depressed. This can lead to a feelings of hopelessness and despair. The answers to how to move through and resolve these feelings are often held within ourselves, and with support and guidance we can overcome these feelings and thrive.
In order to facilitate positive results I utilize a variety of approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focused and Mindfulness (to name a few). These techniques will be used to develop long-term strategies that can help meet goals and bring about the desired changes. While the techniques can be very effective, counseling is a collaborative process for best results to be achieved.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working in the human services field for the last 25 years. During my career I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and families who have experienced a variety of life crises including sexual abuse, domestic violence, victimization due to crime, and couples grappling with communication and parenting issues. Providing support and guidance to overcome depression, anxiety, strengthen boundaries, and increase self-esteem have been a significant part of my practice over my career.
