Beyond "the shrink"
When most people think of "therapy," they imagine the old cliche of going to an office, lying on a couch, and talking. Today, there are many options for those seeking counseling. Our approach is to help you clearly identify the "problem"-- what needs to change for you to feel happier, to reach your goals, to overcome difficulties and bad experiences from the past. We then work together to envision and take steps toward solutions— the things you would prefer to experience and do — by uncovering and building on your own strengths and resources.
You have probably heard the old saying "The only constant in life is change." Change can be good, hard, necessary, painful, or exciting. Whether you are experiencing the hard/necessary/painful sort of change or want to have more of the good/exciting kind of change happen, we are here to help.
Our goal is to explore and build on your strengths and capabilities to help you handle change in ways that are more satisfying and constructive for you. We focus on what people want in their lives as well as the challenges and problems that are getting in the way of those things. We work to help people better manage the problems and challenges they face and make space for more of what they would prefer.
