Overcoming Problems

In the past, "therapy" typically meant going to an office, lying on a couch, and talking. It was assumed that just being able to talk through things would help. The therapist might give some interpretation or assessment, or might ask how things made the client feel. Today, there are many options and approaches to doing counseling.

My approach is to help people identify the "problem"-- what needs to change for them to feel happier, to reach their goals, to overcome difficulties and bad experiences in their past. We then work together to envision and take steps toward solutions--the things they would prefer to experience and do--by uncovering and building on their strengths and resources.

Some of the things people consult with me about include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety or Worry
  • Grief and loss
  • Body image
  • Women's life cycle changes
  • Post-partum depression
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Male survivors
  • Cross-cultural therapy
  • Identity issues
  • Integrating spirituality
  • Parents of children with disabilities
  • Parenting
  • Wanting more confidence
  • Wanting to feel more content or happy
  • Living a more meaningful life
  • Improving relationships
  • Goal setting/career planning
  • Personal growth
