Psychotherapist, Clinical Social Worker, Supervision, and Consultation
You Are the Expert of Your Own Life
I also believe you play the most important role in your own treatment. There may be times during treatment that you will be asked to "do homework"–such as keep track of certain behaviors or reading a relevant book. For therapy to be most successful, you must be willing to take responsibility for your therapeutic experience, and willing to work toward awareness and change.
What You Can Expect
Every therapy session is unique and customized to you and your specific needs. Therapy can be short term and concentrate on a specific issue, or longer term to address more complex issues or to deal with ongoing growth or education.
It is common to have a series of weekly sessions, with each session lasting approximately 55 minutes for individuals and approximately 90 minutes for couples or complex issues.
Here are some things you can expect from working with me:
- Compassion, Respect, and Understanding
- Feedback and perspectives that will help illuminate persistent patterns and negative core beliefs
- Real, pratical strategies for enacting positive change
- Effective, research-proven techniques and tools, along with practical life guidance
