We all have mechanisms we use to cope. Do you know yours? Humans have the capacity to develop sophisticated versions of the animal world’s Fight/Flight/Freeze response to threats in the environment. Often these coping mechanisms were developed when we were children. While they worked for us in the past they may not be the best fit for today’s problems. They may create new problems for us or those around us. Therapy is a one way to discover, review, add to your toolbox of “ways to cope” with the world and the people in it.

I’m trained to work with individuals, couples, and families dealing with relationship challenges. I most often use an educational approach sometimes called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This approach examines the interactions between Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors. Each person’s journey in therapy is unique and other treatment options may be used. Regardless of the style of therapy, studies consistently show the biggest factor in successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client.
