Psychotherapy is designed to improve your functioning in life. You may focus on alleviating symptoms like anxiety or depression, changing dysfunctional behaviors or coping better with specific problems. I work with adults on problems of daily life and issues related to relationships, including parenting. My orientation involves examining patterns of thinking, feeling and behavior with a strong emphasis on the present. I have found cultivating mindfulness skills and positive health and wellness behaviors to be important in achieving optimal results.
