Why do I need therapy?
Just like the body needs exercise and nutrition to perform optimally, the mind needs healthy outlets for expression, too. People seek therapy for different reasons. One thing that all clients have in common is that they have taken the first steps necessary in facilitating change in their lives.
If you’re ready to take accountability for your life and choices, therapy is right for you!

Better listening skills and communication

What disorders do you treat?

A one-fits-all approach to therapy doesn’t exist. I take into account your unique needs and come up with a solution that feels right for you and your situation.
I take medication, do I still need therapy?
Yes, you may very well need both. Your medical doctor makes this determination based on what benefits you. Rather than slap a bandage on a wound, it’s important to know how you acquired it, how you’ll treat it, and how to avoid injuring yourself in the future. Medication treats symptoms of pain but it never addresses the cause of it. Therapy gets to the bottom of issues by requiring a person to make a commitment to themselves and the process.
