My goal as a psychologist is to work with individual's, couple's, and families to live more functional lives. Whether the identified issues are communication problems, behavior problems, emotional instability, and/or maldaptive modes of thinking and behaving, my goal is to help client's develop more effective problem solving skills to live healthier lives. With individual's suffering from learning problems, depression, anxiety, eating disorder, substance abuse disorders, victims of trauma, and other issues/conditions a negative sense of self, feelings of personal inadequacy, and excessive guilt and shame are often present. Therefore, a frequent goal of therapy is to aid individual's in the development of a healthier self concept, with a greater sense of personal responsibility and awareness, and improved competence in their ability to manage their own lives and emotions in the present, which aids in influencing positive change in their relationships and environment.
