Critical Incident Stress Debriefing
Employee Assistance Counseling
For over 20 years, I have practiced psychotherapy in order to help others address and work through issues such as anxiety, depression, loss, anger, and relationship difficulties, to name a few mental health issues many have struggled with. I understand how dealing with these matters is painful and difficult. In a relaxed, supportive environment, together we will identify, address and work through the issues that are troubling you. During therapy, I will help you explore and process difficult feelings and challenge underlying counterproductive thoughts and behaviors. Following this process, you will achieve a great sense of relief and awareness, and develop the tools that foster healthier living.
My work is insight-oriented as well as solution focused. In both modalities, I integrate cognitive-behavioral approaches that provide skills you can readily use. I also emphasize the importance of a balanced lifestyle achieved through exercise, diet, sleep hygiene, work/life balance and maintaining healthy relationships. My ideal clients are individuals and couples who are interested in personal growth and meeting their emotional potential.
My office is conveniently located in a vintage Old Town 3 Flat. The "L" Brown line Sedgwick stop is a half block from our front door. There's always free or metered parking available or it's a quick cab ride for appointments before/after work or during your lunch hour.
