Life is a “process”…not a “product.” It is ever evolving and changing. Some say life is essentially a series of momentary decisions that we make every day – one after the other.
Good decisions are self-promoting and result in personal validation, a feeling of well-being and accomplishment, and encourage us to move forward. Not so good decisions tend to be self-defeating, can be hurtful to ourselves and those we love, and leave us feeling unfulfilled and hopeless. Also, there are those forces acting on us that we have little or no control over including childhood and family experiences and unconscious influences that helped shape our lives and our outlook on life.
My training is in primarily marriage and family therapy which include sex therapy and relational enhancement therapy. I have extensive experience with treating adolescents with emotional and behavioral issues and their families. I also work with substance use disorders and addictions including sex addiction, anxiety and panic disorder, depression, bipolar disorder; adjustment disorders; career counseling and general phase of life problems.
My approach to working with clients is based in a developmental and systems perspective focusing on the environmental, social and relational circumstances impacting the client's difficulties. All problems occur within a social context and a person's relationship to the various people in their lives including partners; family members; friendships; and work relationships.
My approach to therapy is solution-focused and emphasizes the existing strengths that people have and identifying and developing additional strengths and new coping skills that help people to make better personal, interpersonal and professional decisions.
It's our range of experience that helps our clients benefit from treatment that's as unique as they are.
