I feel that structured, directive sessions, and implementing a variety of techniques have produced positive results and have opened lines of communication between me and my client. In our work together, we will explore your thinking/beliefs/emotional-behavioral responses and discover obstacles. We will use them to understand what life experiences have caused you to stay stuck in cycles that have brought you to therapy. Our work together includes addressing your core issues, depending on what your needs or desires are. We will focus on the present and past, to help you get to a better place emotionally and mentally. I empower and help people to adapt a flexible, healthy, balanced, rational approach and perspective leading to healthier behavioral/emotional responses.
