By improving the ways in which you handle feelings, behaviors, and interact with others, your professional and personal life also will improve. In therapy, a psychologist can help you learn new coping strategies, develop greater confidence, improve habits, strengthen communication skills and solidify a sense of purpose and meaning. I can also help you address any issues that have been preventing you from reaching your goals. We figure out what it is you want, what is stopping you from getting it and how to get what you want. I use a collaborative approach and highly value the therapeutic relationship that paves the way for progress in therapy.
