Providing individual psychotherapy for adolescents, young adults, and adults for a wide range of issues, including:
- Depression, Anxiety, Stress, and Low Self-Esteem
- Social or Interpersonal Concerns
Developmental Life Changes, such as:
- high school transition to college
- adjustment to college
- adjustment to young adulthood, relationships, parenthood, retirement, etc.
I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is vitally connected to the success of the treatment. I provide a supportive, yet interactive environment that promotes trust and safety and encourages self-exploration. My understanding of a client’s history of events and relationships provides a backdrop to help clarify current means of coping and relating to others. I provide education, not only about the process of psychotherapy, but also regarding self-regulation of emotions and thoughts as a means of skill development. There is an emphasis on identifying strengths and deepening competencies, empowering clients to clarify their own perspectives and pursue what it important to them.
My work with adolescents and young adults includes furthering the development of self-identity, emotional regulation and coping skills, navigating relationships, and making effective transitions to college and/or post high-school graduation plans.
I also provide psychotherapy for adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, loss, the effects of trauma, and their own developmental transitions, be it to college, adulthood, or to mid-life and beyond.
Lastly, I understand the value of collaboration with other relevant professionals involved in the client’s care, and when permitted by the client, may have contact with other therapists, physicians, psychiatrists, or school officials, in order to support treatment progress.
