"Building New Skills to Last a Lifetime"
Talk-therapy is not just about describing your pain. Through compassionate listening, my clients and I decide on the outcomes we wish to achieve, while I provide the necessary education, skills training, and self-management skills to last a lifetime.
I have over 20 years of private practice success, working with a diverse population of clientele with problems ranging from life dissatisfaction to chronic mental illness. I also create trainings and seminars to meet various business needs.
I specialize in helping people identify the patterns of discontent in their lives - Those elusive roadblocks that deprive people of their birthright to live a full, happy life. Then, once comprehended, my clients and I work to develop exclusive strategies to quickly and effectively make changes in any or every aspect of life.
OUR PROCESS may include:
- Skills Training: communication, assertiveness, managing emotions (i.e., anger, anxiety, depression, grief, shyness, social fears); cognitive restructuring; increasing self-awareness, self- esteem, compassion, and more.
- Journaling: free-flow consciousness, inner-child healing, dialogues, the 'unsent' letter, and ‘The Work’.
- Clarifying Life Values: including identifying, action planning, and monitoring progress as well as setbacks.
