Psychotherapist - LPC, LCAS
We are all content, fulfilled and happy at our core; however, years of conditioning and habitual behaviors can obscure this fact. Areas where we experience significant distress may offer the greatest opportunities for growth. My approach to psychotherapy is grounded in my belief that the key to improving our mental health lies in better integrating the mind and the body or the cognitive with our emotional / intuitive self. By creating a safe, compassionate and productive setting and drawing on your inherent strengths and motivation, I can guide you through this process.
I utilize a variety of experiential techniques drawn from Family Systems Theory and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In addition, my works with clients draws heavily on my own meditation practice and my understanding of the need for relaxation and mindfulness skills to break through our patterns of ego-centered thinking.
My training as a financial planner, makes me uniquely qualified to provide “financial therapy.” Historically therapy and financial planning have been provided by two entities. Integrating these services ensures that ingrained belief systems, childhood messages, and communication issues do not interfere with achieving your personal and financial goals.
