Individual Psychotherapy

During our first session of individual therapy we will get to know each other and talk about what to expect throughout our time together.  You will get to tell me about what is going on and the two of us together will establish goals.  You will learn about yourself and how to move toward your goals with my support along the way. 

Some of the issues I address in Individual Therapy are

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Academic Success
  • Young Professional Matters
  • Self Esteem Issues
  • Adolescent Issues
  • Career Counseling

Couples' Counseling

Couples come to therapy for many reasons.  I have the training and experience to work with all types of couples with a range of problems.  When meeting for the first time, we will talk about what brought the two of you to therapy.  From this, I will provide some insight about the issues underlying the problems you are having and we work together to create a new relationship. 

Some of the issues I address in Couples' Counseling are

  • Communication
  • Domestic Issues
  • Fighting Fair

Group Therapy

Group therapy can be a great way to work through problems with the support of those who have similar issues.  I will guide the group and the other group members will provide insight, understanding, feedback, suggestions, and advice.  People are sometimes hesitant to try group therapy, but honestly sometimes someone who has gone through something similar, is better than seeing a therapist in individual therapy. 

Currently I am getting people together to start groups focusing on

  • Anger Management
  • Young Professional Issues

Assessments

Sometimes people ask "Is there something wrong with me?" or "What is wrong with me?"  Or they need to be evaluated by a mental health professional by court order.  Honestly, I stick to short, simple, and effective assessment tools and any needed assessments would be covered within the first couple of sessions.  But, if you only want to do these assessments, you're more than welcome!

The exception is Life Style Assessments. 

A Life Style is much more than how it is know colloquially. Life Style is a person’s unique way of moving through life. In fact, it is the only way someone knows of moving through life as they learned their style early on, and continue to cling to that same style. It is who you are. It is how you perceive yourself, others, your relationships, your community, the world, your significant other, and your work. It is your perception of how things are, your ideas of how things should be, and your method of moving from how things are to how they should be.

A Life Style Assessment is an Adlerian subjective assessment that gathers information about a your family constellation, social development, parental information, early recollections, and other traits which contribute to one’s Life Style. I will use this information to provide you with a summary, interfering attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors and assets and strengths you posses and can use to move forward despite those things that interfere.

The assessment first provides insight. With this insight you gain knowledge about assumptions you have and your habits. If you wish, you can continue work to challenge these assumptions and replace them with new healthier behaviors.

The assessment itself can take a little as couple hours, done in one extended or two traditional length sessions. I will need some time to review the assessment and draft a summary for you to keep. You will then meet with me for a session to discuss this summary. If you would like, you may continue work to further address or build on what you learn about yourself.


Seminars and Workshops

I am an expert in a few fields and love to share my knowledge with an audience.  So, I provide a seminars and workshops. 

Seminars are usually shorter and focus more on providing information.  Workshops take longer and get everyone involved.  This is not only more fun, but people leave with more and remember more. 

I can provide seminars and workshops on

  • Fighting Fair
  • Time Management
  • Academic Success
  • Anger Management
  • Young Professional Issues
  • Outcome Frame
  • And Other Topics

Consulting

I approach consulting in a different way.  There are plenty of executive coaches out there who will focus on efficiency and effectiveness, even at a personal cost to those involved.  I know it's important to do what you do well, but people are also important.  I focus on teamwork and and creating productive relationships within your group.
