Psychotherapy is about recovering your resilience, and exploration of the past, present, and contemplations of the future. Although it acknowledges present problems and past causes, it predominantly explores your current resources and future hopes -helping you to look forward and use your own strengths to  develop and achieve your goals. It works by helping you to overcome problems without tackling them directly-using solution building concepts to foster change and helping you to develop a set of clear, concise and realistic goals. We empathize with your struggles and believe you have the capacity and skills to create change in your life, though you may need help refining and identifying  and enhancing those skills. It is also my belief you know, at least on some level, what change is needed in your life. Therefore, I am professionally trained to help you clarify your goals and guide you to see what is working for you, as well as, encourage you to experiment with new approaches to your dilemmas. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with years of experience. My theoretical approach to treatment is “multi-modal” with strong solution focused and Attachment Theory influence to empower you and motivate  your desire to change. The human spirit can overcome anything if it has hope. Addressing your mental health issues will help you find joy and cleave to the reasons for living. Make an appointment with us today and start finding your way back to the resilienceyou once had.
