“Often it’s the deepest pain which empowers you to grow into your highest self”
I work with individuals in a safe, collaborative, and mutual environment. I view therapy as a means of addressing the challenges of life. Therapy is especially helpful in working with the kinds of challenges that keep surfacing throughout life or have no clear origin and means of resolution.
I work with couples with several goals in mind: To increase understanding of the origin of conflicts; to develop insight into emotional needs and wants; to develop the critically important skill of communicating about needs, wants, and feelings; and to develop a relationship that can foster a meaningful life together.
Assessment & Diagnostic Services
I provide assessment services to provide diagnostic clarity and to supplement treatment planning.
I provide online therapy, otherwise known as telemental health. This service is provided for those who are unable to leave their home, who work unconventional hours, or who live in remote areas.
To arrange for a telemental health appointment, please email me.
New Collaborative Services
I provide individual and group clinical supervision. It’s my pleasure to supervise and support new counselors getting started on this exciting path! We’ll work together to go over in-depth the points of competence required of new mental health professionals. These include: case conceptualization, therapeutic framework, modalities, boundaries, forms, record keeping, payment, ethics, getting established, difficult situations, and other professional counseling issues as they arise.
What Issues Can Depth Therapy Help With?
Individuals with deep rooted emotional concerns, trauma, or issues they do not fully understand may find depth therapy to be a beneficial mode of therapy. Those who experience depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship issues, sexual concerns, compulsions, or a variety of life challenges may be able to explore and understand the roots of these difficulties through depth therapy. Generally, depth therapy doesn’t focus on a specific problem or issue, instead seeks to address the entire scope of an individual’s conscious and unconscious emotions.
It’s typically a lengthier approach than solution-focused therapies, and individuals wishing to spend more time deeply exploring the things that led them to seek treatment may find depth therapy a useful approach. One outcome that may result from depth therapy is an increase in self-awareness and a deeper understanding of self. An individual may feel a greater sense of authentic self and increased sense of liberation from concerns affecting them. This may lead to an increased capacity to maintain strong, healthy inter-and interpersonal relationships.
This approach typically involves intense emotional work, and a high level of motivation on the part of the individual participating in treatment. Depth therapy requires people to confront feelings and memories that may be painful, and those participating in depth therapy may want to understand that the approach will likely elicit strong, potentially negative emotions and may feel worse before they begin to feel better, but, this is the healing journey and path to restored wholeness and balance in life.
