We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

We tend to think about change when we are struggling with emotional pain or with situational concerns. Counseling provides a time, a place and a process for reflection. Self-understanding and change become more conscious and certain. I create a confidential and safe space for reflection. The work may lead to a reevaluation of old patterns and decisions, to an opening to new possibilities, and to the resolution of emotions and doubts.

The focus often begins with one of the following.

DEPRESSION Are you silently experiencing depression? Do you have concerns about taking antidepressants? Depression can have numerous causes and influences. Talking can help. While it is a common part of life, you do not want to become stuck. Let us try to figure out what is weighing you down and what can be done about it.

STRESS, ANXIETY, TRAUMA Anxiety is always unpleasant; it can be debilitating and can block problem solving and creative thinking. It is both a physical reality and an emotional, psychological symptom. It can involve the past and its influences, and/or the present and its challenges. Greater clarity can help resolve issues and identify options.

TRANSITIONS e.g., mid-life changes, divorce, job changes, the loss of someone important. We know that change is part of life; it can also be painful and disorienting. Transitions can be experienced as small deaths; one way of being in the world is gone leaving you with doubts about who you are now or what you are to do with your life now. These questions often cannot be answered easily or quickly. Talking with someone outside your circle of family and friends can be helpful. Talking can make the journey less lonely and, often, two heads can be better than one.

DREAMS Dreams are snap-shots of our current psychological situation. The perspective they provide is generally different from the perspective of our conscious understanding. Just as the conscious mind can be directional in the identification of goals and plans, the unconscious can also be directional in the depiction of unresolved emotions or of future possibilities. Dreams are not always a part of counseling, but they are an option.

ADD / ADHD ADD is not a single entity.  Attention problems can be a reflection of a number of different issues.  For example, they may reflect a problem in sensory processing, physical problems (e.g., epigenetic problems, gut/gluten problems), an information processing style that has clear strengths as well as weaknesses, etc..  Treatment and problem solving require a specific and clear understanding of the problem. Come in and let's explore your or your child's options.

In order to use insurance, a client must meet the criteria for a psychiatric diagnosis. When the client no longer meets the criteria, insurance can no longer be used. The psychiatric diagnosis becomes part of the client's permanent medical record. Organizations that have access ...
