Good news is you're in the right place.
However, 1st an Important Step! In my many years of doing this work, I know that counseling is a professional relationship where if we don't "click," it doesn't work. It matters to connect and be sure. Having a chance to see if that's there means a lot.
That's why I offer a free 15-30 minute Intro-Consultation. You can tell me what has you stuck. I can assess whether my skill base is right for your issue and answer any questions you have about my counseling process. Feeling safe and informed before you begin counseling is important. Only then can you best determine whether working together makes good sense. If yes, then we will schedule a time to meet and begin. Begin to get you back on track fast. On track to survive and thrive!
Well-known around NOVA, I am a clear-talking, solution-focused but still empathetic therapist. TOGETHER with my nearly 20+ years of training and experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Relational Life Therapy (RLT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS)/Gottman Theory approaches in my work with singles, couples, families and teens --- we'll kick up the dirt around your camp and see what works and get rid of what doesn’t.
Together we'll help you find your best self. Help you unearth and change habits and patterns that aren’t cutting it --- ones that ultimately hold either you, your family/child relationships, marriage, parents, and/or work relationships back from experiencing a life that feels right and keeps you excited about waking up and jumping into your day!
[Important Note: Please be advised that the Initial Consultation is not an official psychotherapy or counseling session per HIPPA Regulations. Diagnostic assessment, guidance, or counseling treatment will not be part of this discussion.]
I AM HERE TO HELP! Many of the counseling approaches used over the past decades are out-dated. Only listening, nodding, and affirming doesn’t cut it anymore. By the time you come into my office you’ve had it --- you’re stuck and need new! Self-reflective redirecting to help YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES identify and break old dysfunctional patterns is what works. I use effective data driven hands on psycho-educational tools that have impact not only in session, but more importantly back at home where it really counts.
Counts so you can find success. Success so you can give (and GET) the kind of peace and love that you want and deserve! My professional mission over my many years of training and working with lots of the awesome people whom I have met and helped is to stay connected. To stay connected and current with what's going on in today’s family-focused, but career-competitive, consumer-culture and tech-driven world. To help you, your family, and loved ones Join with the Truth to....
CARING BUT HARD-CHARGING THERAPY THAT MEANS YOU CAN SAY...
