I work with people facing multiple life issues. Specific among these are: Anger Management, Addictions, Anxiety, Depression, Marital/Couples, Adolescents, Trauma, Parenting/Family Dynamics. While these are specific problems, counseling frequently focuses on more general difficulties interfering with our ability to thrive and be content. Therapy can, and should, be as much about reaching your potential as solving specific problems. Therapy is difficult! My initial goal in treatment is to provide a positive, comfortable and non-judgmental atmosphere where clients can face difficult issues. While my focus is on current struggles and behaviors, the roots of our current problems sometimes lay in past hurts. Exchanging past ineffective behaviors for new, productive skills; healing and learning from past hurts; and developing strength and skill to be the person you want to be is always the goal.
