If you've come to this page, we imagine that something is bothering you. There is either something you don't want (like anxiety, depression, 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, we serve to guide and help you make the change you want. The change we 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 our Red Bank Psychological Services, we may challenge you on your old beliefs about yourself, relationships, life, and what one 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 us as consultants) to see things more clearly. We all have blind spots, and that's a big part of therapy.
People seek us out when they feel they need help coping with a change or some coaching in order to make a change. We use a variety of approaches and techniques in our work with individuals. We invite you to contact us for a free 15-minute phone consultation to ensure that working together is the best fit to meet your therapy needs.
