In the United States, almost half of adults (46.4 percent) will experience a mental illness during their lifetime with half of all mental disorders are believed to begin by age 14 and three-quarters by age 24. Therapy can be a great way to reclaim balance and better control in your life.
Through the therapeutic process, you will begin to identify, assess, and explore difficulties that are negatively impacting your life. In this one-on-one format, therapy will work to support you in gaining a better understanding of your experienced emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. As the therapeutic relationship develops, we will utilize this relationship integrating psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral techniques and interventions to facilitate your path towards interpersonal growth and change. In this interpersonal process approach, I believe that by improving ones interpersonal functioning in either identified problem area it will work to reduce psychopathology and foster improved interpersonal communication, functioning, and social support within significant relationships.
I treat individual’s age five and older dealing with a wide array of issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, parenting support, life transitions, video game & social media addiction, attention & concentration and much more. Each client will identify their difficulties, needs, and goals they wish to address in therapy. Treatment will be uniquely designed around these areas but fixed as the treatment process is both collaborative and ever-changing.
