For many years, therapy has been one of those forbidden topics, because of the various stigmas and the assumptions created over the years. Many times, people have been afraid or embarrassed to seek therapy, because of concerns about what others think of us. From my perspective, it is a sign of resilience to reach out for assistance as needed so as to better manage our emotions and behaviors and to acquire new skills. We all have strengths, and we all have areas in which we can improve. It is just a matter of learning new, more effective ways of doing things to reach our goals and get our needs met. Our feelings can be constant reminders of our negative circumstances. We can change the way we are relating to our feelings and thus change our circumstances. The decision to pursue therapy is a step towards change and creating the life you want. I take pride in helping families reach their goals, while maintaining an empathic therapeutic environment and a non-judgmental stance. We are all unique in our own way, it is just a matter of understanding how to have healthy relationships with others around us. We will work together as a team to reduce your conflicts, alleviate your anxiety, and create more desirable patterns of interactions in your life. I truly look forward to working with you and your family to help you overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.
