Counseling & Therapy Services Offered
Individual counseling is a form of treatment in which the client is treated on a one-on-one basis with a therapist. It may encompass many different treatment styles including psychoanalysis and cognitive behavior therapy. We can work on ways to explore and clarify your feelings, in addition to how you communicate, understand others, and explore options to make changes in your life.
With children I primarily engage then in play-therapy allowing a relationship to build and allowing the child to express themselves in a manner that is non-intrusive and supportive.
Adolescents are often difficult to approach however I create a safe and supportive environment for them to express themselves freely in order to explore behavioral, academic and social concerns.
I address changes to the family system, grief and loss, behavioral difficulties and academic concerns.
Family therapy is based on the belief that the family is a unique system with its own structure, values and patterns of communication. We explore your families norms and focus on improving communication, self expression and understanding in order to overcome the many stressors a family can face.
Couple & Marriage Counseling
Couples can often find themselves in conflict and dedicating time in therapy to one another to resolve differences that commonly exist in a relationship can be beneficial. Together we explore values, gender roles, cultural issues, differences and establish ways in communicating and fighting fairly in order to find a compromise that can strengthen the couple to move forward.
We explore how substances affect your personal life as well as those around you. We establish behavioral changes and develop strategies to overcome dependency. SMART Recovery and the 12 steps are also incorporated in treatment.
