Blended family issues
Personal Growth: Individual Therapy
Therapy should be about change. Where do you want to see yourself
in the coming months? Years? What would you like to increase? What are you ready to let go? I draw from Cognitive Therapy
(or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) techniques to address issues in people’s lives that are causing confusion, discomfort
or pain. Treatment is focused, often short-term and teaches techniques that you can use now
to get your life back on track.
Twos: Couples Therapy
Couples therapy is about mutual problem-solving. I work with all couples: gay, straight,
unmarried, and married. In addition, I work with any two individuals who are committed to making their bond stronger. Even
business partners or close friends can be good candidates for therapy if communication problems and dysfunctional patterns
are leaving two people less satisfied with their relationship.
All Together Now: Family Therapy
Families are as unique as the individuals who make them
and therefore, so is my family therapy. Rarely will the structure of our sessions look the same week after week. All members
will be asked to participate in the process of meeting concrete goals. I work with families to address a variety of concerns.
Flexible evening and weekend hours are available to accommodate family members’ busy schedules.
I have been in the counseling professions
for over ten years and have been providing individual, couples, and family psychotherapy for the past six years. I received
advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from the Beck Institute in Philadelphia. I am a Certified Cognitive Therapist
and Diplomat Member of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. I have additional experience counseling within an EAP setting, working
with adolescents, as well as individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
I have relationships
with a network of complementing providers such as psychiatrists and therapists of other modalities and specializations. I
can make referrals for medications or other services as needed.
