How Therapy Can Help
Communication Skills, group therapy
I focus on helping you to: relieve the stress and depression that often accompany relationship problems become aware of how you undermine what you want for your life and those who share it with you learn more successful and satisfying ways of relating to others. There is no reason to continue suffering when help is available.
The therapy that I provide is tailored to individual needs and concerns. Since every person is different, therapy will also be unique to the person. My style as a therapist tends to be more interactive than neutral, and I work hard to help my clients to progress toward their goals as quickly as possible. I employ a variety of tools and techniques to help my clients attain their therapeutic goals, and actively tailor the treatment approach to suit the needs of my clients. I also emphasize treatment methods that are supported by the latest research findings, as appropriate. With regard to technique, I most commonly operate from Cognitive-Behavioral and Psychodynamic perspectives. I utilize these approaches to help you understand how you got to where you are, and help you make desired changes.
