“...many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little.” --Plutarch
In my approach to therapy, I work with you and your family to solve the daunting problems you encounter in life. We work together to create step-by-step solutions that you can feel confident in incorporating into your everyday life. I make use of my training as a social worker and family therapist. I utilize family, school and other community supports as often as possible to help my clients become as self reliant as they can be. My purpose is to help you solve your own problems so that you can go on and enjoy your life.
I view therapy as assembling a puzzle: You bring the pieces to me and I help you to rearrange them and put your puzzle together so that you can see the big picture and leave with a completed puzzle. I feel it is crucial to the therapeutic process to have a comfortable, trusting relationship with your therapist. I provide a free half hour phone consultation so that you and I both can determine if that relationship will be possible.
I look forward to working with you.
