Because I did the work myself, I understand that you need to decide for yourself what we focus on. I will give you invitations to work on things but this is your journey. We can work on perfectionism, anxiety, grief, depression, trauma, drug/alcohol problems, problem family dynamics, and relationship problems. I have worked in many different roles including as an individual, family and couples therapist for the last 10 years in a variety of environments including agencies, jails, law enforcement and county based mental health services, so odds are I have some experience that will allow me to relate to yours. I am trained in several therapy approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt, and Brainspotting, but I have found that a blend of these approaches seems to work best. When working with couples, I use the Gottman Method and am mentored by Nancy Ryan, LMFT and Certified Gottman Therapist. Our work will be collaborative and if you can see it through, you will have what you need without me as a coach to help guide you and I will carry the wisdom you shared with me to help others. The first step is deciding when you are ready……I hope to see you soon.
