Therapy is a journey. You should choose a therapist carefully. It is important to feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. Therapy is beneficial to those seeking personal growth or having difficulty with a stage or area in their life.
My approach is mostly based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I choose from other approaches as needed. Your thoughts influence your feelings which determines your behavior. I hope to offer you different perspectives, techniques, and tools to face difficult challenges. I also believe unresolved issues contribute to most challenges faced in life. I look forward to working with individuals to achieve measurable goals that will move you in a positive direction toward the life you desire.
