Many years of working with people has taught me that there is no one way to 'do therapy'. Individuals interact with their world in very unique ways based on how they have experienced life. I feel it is my job to understand how individuals perceive themselves and their worlds before I can offer to help them through a difficult situation. Together, we identify and clarify strengths and skills that exist in each individual to be used as building blocks. Through a process of looking at how thoughts, emotions and behaviors interact and influence each other, we can challenge and adapt those thoughts or behaviors that are damaging and replace them with more effective ones. These tools can then be used on a daily basis to help maneuver through the everyday situations that can sometimes be so overwhelming and often destructive.
