The purpose of therapy is goal directed conversation in the service of change. The goal is rapid recovery from painful emotions, destructive relationship patterns, habits or addictions, and troublesome history all of which keep you from living your life fully and effectively.
Most individuals coming to therapy welcome an approach that targets rapid recovery from what is troubling them. To accomplish this, I integrate several well researched therapeutic models including
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology, and Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) among others. Research consistently shows that people who participate in psychotherapy improve.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM ME?
My role is to help each client feel completely safe, understand and clarify concerns, provide confidence in my ability to help, and provide information that is easy to digest and put into action.
My passion is the practice and art of psychotherapy, and seeing the wonderful changes in mood and behavior that my clients experience. Many of my clients are referrals from previous clients. This
suggests that they feel confident in referring their friends and families knowing that I can help them. Every client can expect a place of compassion where each individual is listened to with respect and empathy, kindness, acceptance, and occasional humor as the ability to laugh promotes healing. I am a consumer of current research in the field, so clients can expect up-to-date treatment strategies that have been shown to get results.
