Talking Therapies for Adults
You are capable of continued growth and change throughout your life time. My work is based on a growth model which emphasizes engaging the inner self while examining a person’s situation and choices. Therapy must work with your internal reality and the outside systems in which you live.
The internal system includes:
1. Emotions, perceptions, expectations, & yearnings.
The outside systems include your:
2. Family, relationships, work & communities.
The two systems interact with each other all the time, and a change in one impacts the other. Working from this stance, I help people understand emotion & thoughts, reframe old beliefs & perceptions while generating new possibilities.
Individual Therapy for Adults:
Get clear about your situation
Deepen self acceptance
Improve your relationship with others
Expand your interpersonal skills
Enhance piece of mind
Take reasonable steps towards change
You don’t have to be going through a traumatic event or change to benefit from regular therapy.
Some of the people with whom I work with are highly accomplished and insightful but feel they could benefit from further self-reflection. Having a ‘third ear’ and a confidential place for complicated thoughts and emotions can feel just right and add a deep sense of well-being.
*I am delighted to practice with a diverse racial, ethnic population of different religious & secular persuasions and lifestyles. I work with adults of all ages and stages in life. I welcome individuals who identify as straight, gay, lesbian and bi-sexual. I am an open and non-judgmental clinician and I love what I do.*
