Monday through Friday including evening
We believe in the importance of both Science and Spirituality in our work.
We practice a model of therapy, coaching and counseling which is collaborative, open and holistic in nature. Our therapeutic relationship should feel warm, safe and connecting. This model is different than many counseling models which have a less collaborative flavor. In these models typically the therapist is the “expert” in the room and should not be challenged.
In a collaborative model, we want to foster empowerment and teach you to listen and trust your inner self and to foster independence. I will challenge you to think and to argue points with me. This helps to foster critical thinking and is a great skill to take you through life. Our goal is that you will be able to leave with tools to help yourself with confidence during life’s challenges.
Remember that therapy is designed to open your eyes to new experiences, options and ideas. It also is helpful in redefining your idea of self and help you to gain insight into the behaviors which may be interfering with your ability to find peace and happiness.

Each client’s challenges are different and their needs unique. You and I will carefully examine your current needs, short term objectives and long term goals in order to carefully develop the most efficient and effective personalized treatment plan.
