My Approach to Therapy

My style of therapy creates a warm, supportive, and collaborative environment where individuals can enhance self-understanding, maximize strengths, and learn to achieve greater satisfaction in their personal and professional lives.

My approach resembles life coaching. I will work with you to improve self-esteem and coping skills. My special interest areas include managing life transitions, balancing multiple roles, reducing stress and anxiety, coping with depression, strengthening relationships, counseling for academic/work concerns, and living with loss.

When behavior change is the goal, we will develop ways to reframe your concerns and to implement more effective responses. For life-altering events, such as illness and loss, the emphasis will be on understanding your reactions, adjusting over time, and moving forward with your life.
