Therapy That Makes a Difference
In modern working society, it’s easy to look around and find much to be frustrated with, despite how hard you’ve worked and how much you’ve sacrificed. It may seem as though it would be a bit easier to appreciate what you have if you had a better perspective on things, or a bit more to appreciate… or maybe perhaps a bit more guidance on how to appreciate it altogether.
The truth is that at whatever stage, most of us can use a little help in understanding ourselves and one another. This understanding leads to more control, confidence and happiness in our lives. I can guide you through depression, anxiety, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, acculturation, adjustment disorder and other conditions.
Problems naturally come up in most relationships and we can often feel misunderstood, or even betrayed. This period of conflict, disguised as strife, is actually an opportunity for growth- for both the individuals and for the relationship. Whether you’re very experienced or new to therapy, I can help you on your journey in life. I offer therapy for individuals, couples and families of all ages and backgrounds, bringing more than 25 years of experience with expertise in modalities such as Bioenergetics, Imago and Art Therapy. As a developmental psychologist, I have worked with countless families and children, successfully employing Play Therapy. I look forward to guiding you as an individual or family. I will help you learn to accept yourself, grow, relate, and communicate in a gratifying and connected way.
