About Therapy

Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” is an intentional interpersonal relationship used by trained psychotherapists to aid clients in the problems of daily living and increase an individual’s sense of well-being. Psychotherapists employ a variety of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change designed to improve mental health.

I offer two approaches to therapy. One approach is Solution-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy where we work with your current symptoms, management of these symptoms, and/or a mental health diagnosis. I provide this type of therapy in a 45-minute session typically covered by your insurance. The following are some common concerns addressed in Solution-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy:

Sleep problems
Panic attacks
Obsessive thoughts
Conflict resolution
Assertiveness skills
Parenting issues
Stress management
Concentration and focus

The second type of therapy I offer is based on a Jungian Oriented Approach. I am currently pursuing training to become a Jungian Analyst. Because of this in-depth training, I am able to work with clients who seek relief from symptoms and suffering as well as to integrate their emotional, psychological, creative, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of their personality. Due to the investigational nature of this process, which does not focus on a mental health diagnosis, managed care insurance does not cover these 60-minute sessions. The following are some common concerns addressed in a Jungian Oriented Approach to therapy:

Life and mid-life transitions
Trauma and abuse
Dissatisfaction with life
Struggles with creative processing
Dysfunctional patterns and habits
Personality development
Meaning, purpose in life

You do not have to struggle with quality of life issues and experience uncomfortable symptoms that keep you feeling stuck and unhappy. By focusing on healing, personal growth and development, individual therapy can help you make the changes you have been hoping to make in yourself and your relationships.
