Providing individual, couples and family counseling.
Treatment specialization includes:
My clinical background is very diverse. It includes work with individuals, families and groups who have experienced communication problems, or divorce and separation and/or chemical addictions as well as survival of sexual abuse. My background is broad yet my focus is singular enough to give each client(s) the special attention required to meet their needs.
I am a Solution Focused Brief Therapist (SFBT). Using SFBT allows me to enter into a unique therapeutic relationship with my clients that avoids diagnosing and assigning labels. Instead, I work with my clients to rediscover (or discover for the first time) their special gifts that have sustained them and kept them going, up until the very moment that they enter my office. Together, we learn of their desired hopes for the future. My clients learn that their past is only to be used as a reference not as a residence to help them to stay present and in touch with their abilities to be a change agent for their own futures. The beauty of SFBT is that it is a tool that reaches any person(s) with any issue because it is solely focused on what the client wants to see different in their lives. This is done as briefly as is possible, not because of time constraints from insurance other outside forces but rather it comes from the fact that solution-focused therapy is brief. When the focus is on the solution rather than the problem, there is remarkable acceleration in the positive change desired.
