Welcome to my practice! I am passionate about working with individuals and couples who are working towards gaining more insight and awareness to improve their well being.
My specialties include:
Mental Health (depression, anxiety, panic, mood disorders)
Relationship Wellness (dating, break-ups, family dynamics)
Couples Counseling (general and pre-marital)
Vicarious Trauma/Burnout/Compassion Fatigue
Psychotherapy can be provided in a variety of different modalities. I offer the following therapeutic services:
Couples : Couples counseling is a way to address relationship stress and/or challenges. Instead of the individuals who make up the couple ,it is the actual couple dynamic that is the client. One of the methods I utilize is the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 1)
Pre-Marital (8-10 sessions): Pre-marital counseling is a proactive approach to learning more about your partner and your relationship. It is a way to discuss some of the typical topics that create stress on a relationship and to develop a healthy foundation for the marriage. Sessions include the following topics: Family, Finances, Love, Sex & Intimacy, Communication
Co-Parenting (7 sessions): Co-Parenting sessions provide a way to develop tools to provide a consistent level of support for children when the parents are no longer in a couple relationship. The focus is on how to raise the child/children in a healthy and loving way. Topics include: Education, Health, Holidays & Traditions, Finances and Communication.
Groups (5-10 weeks): Groups are centered around various topics and offer the opportunity to process, build support and gain new skills in a small group format. The average group consists of 6 - 8 participants. Examples of topics include: break-ups, creative minds and relationship wellness.
What to Expect
Therapy is a proactive step towards enhancing your relationship with yourself and others. Your first appointment is a time to share where you are at and what you would like to work on. We will discuss the nature of the therapeutic process and create goals/markers of growth. Subsequent sessions will focus on the process of reaching these goals/markers.
