If you plan on being anything less than what you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life – Abraham Maslow
Therapy is less a destination and more a direction, a mutual navigation of life’s challenges. Frustrations, disappointments, and diminished motivation can occur on each person’s journey, yet sometimes these transient obstacles can become neurologically engrained and habituated. Taking the necessary time to realign needs and aspirations can assist in overcoming barriers and symptoms affecting your daily life, and your relationships with friends and family. My approach to therapy is person-centered, taking into consideration the uniqueness of you, your cultural identity, race, gender, sexual orientation, related experiences, values, and self-reflective factors vital to achieving your goals. Together we will develop a plan to help you function more effectively in life and work through situations hindering forward momentum.
I have an extensive background in the Cognitive-Behavioral modality, which focuses on the constructivist aspects of your thought processes to achieve lasting cognitive, emotional, and behavioral change. I have experience working with individuals, pre-teen to senior, with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, anger and stress management, grief and loss, compassion fatigue, and cognitive/executive decline attributable to neurodegenerative maladies such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injuries. It is my profound privilege to build a therapeutic relationship that ensures your concerns are heard and understood, a partnership in your healing and fulfillment.
