One of the most important principles of therapy is that you should feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to help you achieve your goals. To help you make this first step, I offer free phone consultation prior to making an appointment.
Therapy is a partnership. You define the problems we work on, while I use specialized knowledge and skills to help you achieve your desired changes. It is not like visiting a medical doctor: It requires active involvement and effort to change thoughts, feelings, and actions. I have a lot of experience successfully helping patients with many different problems, including anxiety and phobias, depression and loss, relationship counseling, addictions, abusive childhoods, and many others.
I use a variety of approaches in my work with couples including solution-focused counseling and strategies from the Gottman method (see www.gottman.com.) and Dr Harvey (see www.marriagebuilders.com).
I have successfully used self-hypnosis to treat many problems, including anxiety, stress, and low confidence. I also use hypnosis to address many stress related illnesses, such as migraines, digestive disorders, high blood pressure, psoriasis, and many others.
Mindfulness is a very effect tool for overcoming difficulties with anxiety, concentration, and depression. I have successfully used mindfulness in treaing anxiety, panic disorder, ADD, and ADHD.
