Why does one person suffer from stress-related headaches, while another individual is able to navigate life challenges with no ill health affects? Insight certainly satisfies curiosity; however, science informs us that insight is just the beginning. Learning to take yourself off auto-pilot and taking command of the driver's seat affect multiple variables from feelings of well being to cell aging. Psychological hardiness is impacted by mood, personality traits, attitude, thinking patterns, self-awareness, and problem-solving skills, just to name a few areas that are addressed in counseling.
I can say with confidence that you are not alone in your challenges. Clients often want to alleviate feelings of anxiety, depression, grief, and desperation. That's important. However, people committed to change, can go further than symptom relief to lead meaningful, healthier lives.
My methods are eclectic and evidence based. Therefore, therapy is tailored to the individual client using techniques that have been proven effective in the research setting. I have a special interest in couples counseling and am trained in the Gottman method. The majority of my relationship clients chose to also attend individual sessions.
