Individual Counseling

It's about YOU!

Therapists are trained in a variety of ways and through different schools of thought. Although I am sensitive to a variety of perspectives, with individual counseling,
I primarily offer services as a Rational Emotive Behavior Therapist (REBT).  I strive to learn about and understand how you think about things (e.g., your values, upbringing, family structure, schooling, and religious influences, including what you've learned from friends, teachers, pastors, coaches, and key mentors).  I also explore how these cognitive influences have impacted your behavior and your mood as part of cognitive behavioral therapy. In order to serve your needs, I provide individual and couple's counseling for adolescents, teens, and adults of all ages. Although I am trained to offer a broad range of services, I have particular interest in helping patients with issues such as (but not limited to):
