Above all, I am committed to your well being.
Hi, assisting you out of your personal or work related challenges has been my specialty for twenty five years.
While I draw from a whole range of theoretical approaches to address your specific needs,
the essential element of the success rate of my treatment approach has been my ability to provide you with a safe and understanding relationship.
Here is a partial list of benefits you can expect from therapy
- experience relief from depression, anxiety and stress,
-Identify and improve the ways you communicate your emotions,
-Improve your ability to cope with the of loss of a job, a loved one, divorce, sickness and or aging etc,
- Be aware of the triggers & learn to modify your impulsive behaviors, like rage outbursts,eating disorders, gambling & other addictions,
-Resolve conflicts in all areas your life, such as family, love, friends & work. Improve your social skills.
For COUPLES in distress I provide a no shame or blame attitude to help them step out of their conflict creating old habits , develop more empathy for the other and learn to
communicate their understandings & feelings.
Enhanced understanding & communication builds and maintains better connections.
No doubt it takes time & practice.
I have witnessed hope awakening in the words "this works"
