Individual Counseling

I am glad you are here.

 

Choosing to seek counseling is not an easy decision - but often necessary to help avoid serious problems that could impact your quality of life and/or the lives of those you love. Together, we will explore the issues you are facing and identify methods and tools to resolve them.

I encourage my clients to understand their concerns, and how to negate the negative thought process and behavior patterns, aiding in their ability to access a more balanced, peaceful, productive, and authentic life.

I provide therapy based on the developmental level and needs of the individual.  The ability to express oneself is directly correlated to this.  Children express themselves in much different ways than adults and require different therapeutic interventions (such as Play Therapy and Sandtray Therapy) than the traditional "talk therapy". 

 

Sandtray Therapy can offer another medium for reluctant teens and young adults to express themselves, allowing the client to experience an emotional release through the symbolism and projections of feelings into sand miniatures.    

 

I use a variety of proven techniques, including Solution Focused Therapy, Child Centered Therapy, Strength Based Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Narrative Therapy and  Expressive Arts therapies.
