Individual, Couples, Group Therapies
I believe human beings have many high functioning complexities but are still run by our primal needs. When things are thrown off we experience reactions and patterns that do are meant to help us but often throw us off balance. It is important for us to discover how we work, why we work that way, our unmet needs, and personalized solutions; to help us be resolved with ourselves and our experiences so we can work towards balancing our lives, both mind and body. Move away from cookie cutter treatment and closer towards something that works for you, in a language that you can ground yourself in. Therapy needs to be relaxed, personalized, informative, and at times, laughter provoking. I do my best to keep things easy flowing, thorough, and geared towards your specific goals. We will work together, towards helping you learn to resolve conflict [past or present], learn more about yourself and your needs, build your self-esteem, help you to create and utilize specific personalized self-care, future oriented plans, resolution of trauma or addiction, and more. Dialogue would involve an honest non-biased ear to listen and provide support, along with mental health education aimed at personal growth and change. There may even be what some of my more colorful clients have lovingly deemed, “calling you on your crap," chats. Do not worry! I am not a bully, just salt-of-the-earth and direct as needed. I will do my best to keep things lighthearted and informative, but real; anything less would most likely not serve you.
