Are you tired of having the same set of issues and problems occur over and over in your life? Are you ready for change? Is your stress taking a toll on your health? The most effective approach to moving your life forward in a meaningful, more connected way is to strengthen your feelings of competence & self-worth. People successfully achieve this by clearly identifying and then increasing those things that make your life richer, more comfortable and secure, while simultaneously eliminating barriers, such as self-denigration, addictive behavior, impulses and inner stress.
The first step to having the life you want is imagining it. Then, it takes changing how you look at problems to solve them. My patient’s find a place to step outside their problems, weigh their options, take a realistic but hopeful look at how they fit into their world and plan to create the future they want. Resolve today to take steps to learn to prevent the difficulties of the past and present from being carried into the future. I base my work with people I see on the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy combined with biofeedback therapy.
This approach has been shown to be very successful in treating anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, pain, phobias and many other individual and relationship issues. Like most experienced therapists, I also integrate ideas from other approaches whenever appropriate.
