We implement effective and evidence based psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations.
If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, have interpersonal difficulties, low self esteem or just feeling stuck then you've come to the right place. We take a collaborative and active approach and will implement various methods to help you replace maladaptive patterns and coping skills and help you develop new attitudes towards your life’s most complex matters.
In our couples therapy sessions, we work to solve the current problems that you come in with, while uncovering the underlying themes and patterns that have been at play sometimes all along. We'll help you identify your needs both inside and outside the relationship and where you may have a blindspot about how you can be a better partner and improve positive thinking and behavior. We will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to improve communication.
Substance Use & Sobriety
Feeling like you can't stop using a substance that you know doesn't serve you, or you're in recovery and feeling stuck? Whether you're unsure about abstinence or curious about sobriety, it might be time to seek help. In our practice we work together to better understand the meaning behind your substance use and develop coping skills and alternative positive attitudes towards life’s most complex and challenging circumstances.
Anxiety & Depression
Whether it's your constant worry about the future, or ruminating about the past, your hopelessness or lack of motivation and interest, anxiety and depression can interfere with living a fulfilling life if left untreated. We use Cognitive Behavioral therapy which is an evidence based treatment for both anxiety and depression to help you understand the cycle and identify the symptoms as well as the thinking patterns and behaviors that reinforce it. We will explore the benefits of physical exercise and mindfulness practices such as breathing and relaxation techniques to cope with the anxiety and calm down in the moment.
Grief & Loss
There is no one way to grieve. We all go through different stages of the process at different times and it's important to know that it's ok to feel a wide range of emotions including deep sadness, anger, resentment, guilt, and anxiety. Losing someone you love is often the most difficult thing in life to face and can feel unbearable. We can hold space for you to relive memories and mourn, help you identify and process your emotions, and take action-oriented steps to feel like yourself again and get back on track.
