My goal is to ensure that each person I meet with will understand their behavioral health condition and identify techniques to be successful in overcoming any impairments. Often times when facing challenges with our emotional health, we become convinced that we are hopeless. While no amount of therapy can change someone’s lived experiences, in therapy we work to understand the meaning of these events and provide you with tools to determine the direction you want your life to take. Our sessions will include theoretical techniques and literature, while including practical solutions that can be used in everyday situations. I would love to assist you in taking the first step in a journey to improve the quality of your life and/or relationships.
