Critical Incident Stress Debriefing
Employee Assistance Counseling
I am an experienced therapist who uses psychotherapy as a means to address and resolve issues such as anxiety, fear, depression, loss, anger, and relationship difficulties. I understand how dealing with these issues are painful and difficult. In a relaxed, supportive environment, you will identify, address and work through the issues contributing to your current struggle. During therapy, I will help you explore and process through 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 ways of being.
I specialize in long-term insight oriented therapy as well as brief-solution focused therapy. In both modalities I integrates cognitive-behavioral approaches that provide skills you can readily use. I also emphasize the importance of 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 Sedgewick 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.
