My Approach to Helping
Relationships are a source of sustenance and fulfillment. Sometimes we have to grow and change so that we can improve and deepen our relationships. This can be frightening and confusing, and we may not be sure what to do. Therapy provides guidance to explore your relationship and manage change.
I believe that we all share the same emotions, even though we might express these feelings in different ways. I allow my clients to tell their stories in a way that feels comfortable to them. I tailor my treatment options to meet the needs of each client in a way that is sufficiently challenging, manageable, and useful. I have a respectful, collaborative practice and do not judge my clients on the basis of culture, gender, or sexual orientation.
I use emotion and solution-focused therapies, and integrate these approaches with cognitive and experiential approaches. I work with couples, families, and individuals to explore their feelings and examine how their beliefs affect their behavior. My goal is to help my clients achieve better self-awareness, resolve their conflicts, and build healthier, more satisfying relationships.
More Info About My Practice
Insurance coverage will depend on what complement of services your company has purchased with an insurance company. This means that the same insurance company offers different packages with different companies. This is why it is inaccurate to list all insurance companies as it may not be accurate for all. If your company has purchased coverage for a wider range of services and titles, then you have at your disposal more choices. The best way to know if a practitioner you want to work with is included, call your insurance company and let them know that individual’s specific title.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
“Fit” with your therapist is very important. A good fit means easy communication, feelings of safety, and trust in your therapist. Use our first meeting to evaluate how you feel about the therapist and the session. If things don’t feel right, try a different therapist. Both members of a couple need to feel heard, and need to feel confident that the therapist isn’t biased in favor of one person. If the first experience is a bad one, you deserve the chance to try another therapist.
