Individuals

Life tends to proceed more or less smoothly for most of us, much of the time. Periodically, however, all of us suffer with painful, troubling, or disorienting challenges, during which our normal coping mechanisms, and our own insights and efforts don’t seem to be enough to lead us to clarity and peace. It is especially at such times that counseling or therapy can be a healthy and supportive resource in dealing more effectively with present challenges, developing insight and learning skills for creating a better future, and even for healing the wounds of the past. In my practice, I see individuals for various reasons, including:
  • Anxiety, Stress, Worry
  • Panic Attacks
  • Depression, Sadness
  • Social Anxiety
  • Relationship issues to figure out
  • Grieving, Loss
  • Handling Change
  • Sexual Issues
  • Self-Esteem Issues
  • Personal Growth, Existential Issues, Spiritual Struggles
  • Mid-Life Transitions
  • Healing Past Abuse

For counseling or therapy to be especially helpful, it’s important that there be a good match between the two people involved. Each counselor has his or her own personality, thinking style, and clinical approach, and this combination will be helpful to some, but not to everyone. Although the only way to truly know whether a particular professional’s services are compatible with your needs is to experience working with him or her, you can begin forming helpful impressions even before scheduling a meeting if you understand something about his or her approach. Here are some important elements of my approach:
  • Respect
  • Empathy
  • Insight & Intelligence
  • Non-Judgmental attitude
  • Flexibility and Open-Mindedness
  • Research-Based Techniques
  • Solution-Oriented focus
  • Cognitive Therapy skills are incorporated when relevant.
  • Differences in Personality are respected. Each person is treated as a unique individual. No “cookie cutter” approach. (MBTI/Keirsey personality type system.)
  • No Pressure on Religious Issues. In the context of our work together, I respect all my clients’ belief systems, and help them improve the quality of life, whatever their beliefs. I work effectively with both religious and non-religious clients.
