Individual sessions are 50-minute sessions with the client and therapist. During individual sessions, we discuss topics/situations of your choice. I apply a client-centered approach during individual therapy and various therapeutic techniques (CBT, DBT, Solution Focused, etc.) to delve deeper into the issues you are experiencing. In an individual session you will be equipped with the tools needed to navigate life situations.
Couple sessions are 75-minute sessions where couples and therapist have the opportunity to discuss common and reoccurring themes in relationships such as: communications, expectations, previous emotional “baggage” and infidelity. Couples therapy is designed to help strengthen relationships and repair some of the emotional damage that couples often experience. Often times, people assume that couples’ therapy is for married couples only, however this couldn’t be any further from the truth. Couples therapy is a safe space for those who are in a committed relationship, those who are figuring out if they should “take the next step” and those who are seeking the opportunity to “tune up” a few things in their relationship. I have experience working with married couples, couples that are dating and/or engaged and LGBTQ relationships.

EAP services are 6-8 individual/family/couple sessions aimed to address issues that are impacting your social or occupational functioning. I use a solution-focused approached wit EAP services as they are a limited amount of sessions provided. Each session is 50 minutes in length.
Current Group: The ACT Raising Safe Kids Program (developed by the APA Violence Prevention Office)
This educational group teaches positive parenting skills to parents and caregivers of children from birth to age 10. The program is based on three foundational pieces of evidence from research: (1) The early years are a critical time in development when children are learning basic skills that have long-term effects on their lives. (2) Exposure to adverse experiences early in life, such as maltreatment, can have serious and long-lasting impacts on emotional, cognitive, behavioral development and on health. (3) Parents and caregivers are teachers, protectors and advocates for their children. The ACT parenting classes are offered on a quarterly basis. This is a closed group and consists of 4-6 participants. The program curriculum is delivered by trained professionals (ACT Facilitators) to groups of parents/caregivers in nine 2 hr sessions. *This service is not offered online.
