Adult Therapy Services

Even though my primary area of specialty is teens and families, I also enjoy working with adults and continue to work with adults of many ages on a number of issues. Some adults assume that I work only with teenagers but if you are an adult and you are in need of some quality one on one counseling services, I hope you will give me a call for a consultation. Adults can often be notorious for putting their needs behind the needs of others, such as children but I believe that it’s important for them to understand that their children are likely to be happier and healthier when their parents engage in their own self-care. Healthy adults raise healthy children. I focus on being a “rubber meets the road” kind of therapist. I focus on tools and skills. My goal is for my clients to learn strategies so that when they leave they have some positive alternatives to explore. I work with my clients to build on the principle that if you want a different result in life you must change what you do first.

I have experience working with adults on some of the following issues and problems:

  • Addiction and Substance Abuse
  • Phase of Life Issues/Mid-life Crisis Issues/Personal Identity Issues
  • Depression/Self-esteem
  • Suicide
  • Anxiety/Panic/Excessive Worry
  • High conflict Divorce and Custody Issues
  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss

I utilize tools and skills from various therapy modalities including:

  • Cognitive Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Person Centered Therapy
  • Life Span Integration
  • Socratic Questioning
