If you've come to this website, I imagine that something is bothering you. There is either something you don't want (like anxiety, depression, an unhappy relationships) that you haven't figured out how to fix, or there is something you do want (such as a new career, peace, good relationships) that that you haven't achieved on your own. If this is true, and you have the desire to change - you are ready for therapy.
The work starts simply - what is going on now that's troubling you? How did it start? What do you want to have happen instead? And from that place, I serve to guide and help you make the change you want. The change I speak of is in you - your thoughts, beliefs, choices and actions. We can and will talk about others in relationship to you, but the only place you really have leverage is in yourself.
In our work in my Red Bank counseling office, I may challenge you on your old beliefs about yourself, relationships, life, and what we can expect out of it. People tend to be especially frustrated that they haven't been able to think or work their way to peace, love, or fulfillment. Sometimes, you need someone on the outside (think of me as a consultant) to see things more clearly. We all have blind spots, and that's a big part of therapy.
People seek me out when they feel they need help coping with a change or some coaching in order to make a change. I use a variety of approaches and techniques in my work with individuals. My core philosophy is family systems theory, and I use a variety of tools and approaches. If you are not sure if I can help, feel free to contact me and we can chat.
