I want you to know that we are on a journey together and your difficulties are not an imposition or burden : it is an honor to be your therapist. When we meet, you are handing over your heavy backpack. We process through situations and at the end, I hand the back pack to you, but it is a little lighter.
Working on ourselves is seldom an individual effort; it involves those around us being supportive. I see people for individual services and the invitation is always open for people to involve their families, significant others, friends. I practice an evidence based multimodal treatment approach because sometimes the square peg does fit in a round hole. We fill in the empty spaces with therapies that best suit your individual goals and specific needs.
If you are struggling with substance abuse, mood disorder, schizophrenia, internet or gaming addictions, or you’re just sort of stuck, then you’ve come to the right place. I have targeted training in treating self-harm behavior, personality disorders, working with family systems, ADHD, depression, and anxiety. My office is a safe space where we can discuss everything from sexuality to determining that the chicken did come before the egg. Or did the egg come first…? Let’s talk about it!
