What is therapy?
Psychotherapy is often defined as a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. A psychologist provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with an objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental professional that can help you untangle problems and find solutions for moving forward.
This relationship can take many different forms. With me, you will find I am dedicated to working with you to provide a safe and collaborative space to address the challenges and issues you face. Whether you are overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, anxious, or would just like some support in managing life, relationships, or work-life balance, I am here to help. My approach to therapy is flexible combining cognitive, behavioral, developmental, and interpersonal therapies, as well as a little humor when appropriate, to help meet and address your unique needs.
Over the course of our work together, we will have a wide range of experiences in our sessions. At times, we will leave our session feeling great and ready to tackle any problem we face. Other times will be more somber, with reflection and deep thinking the best integration for our work. Sometimes, experiments and theories will be developed and implemented to collect data and provide input as we move toward goals. Regardless of the individuality of each session, the safe space we create to work through each problem, the process of moving forward in finding solutions, and the satisfaction of making progress and developing the skills and abilities to face greater and greater challenges can prove to be the most important part of our time together.
