I provide individual adult (18+) psychotherapy and counseling.
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing therapy for depression, anxiety, grief, anger, stress management, and trauma, among others. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my client's individual needs to help attain the personal growth he/she is striving for.
First, what is psychotherapy?
As defined by the American Psychiatric Association, psychotherapy, "or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing."
That being said, it is important to note that one need not be on the brink of emotional collapse before "qualifying for" or being able to benefit from psychotherapy. For example, an otherwise mentally-healthy individual can benefit from short-term psychotherapy after, say, the loss of a loved one or a difficult relationship failure. Unlike the way some negative stigma of psychotherapy would have us believe, seeking mental health services is not a sign of weakness; rather, it signifies resolve of someone willing to take control of and responsibility for his/her overall quality of life. Anyone can benefit from psychotherapy, regardless of his/her level of mental health.
