Individual Counseling

Are you wondering if some additional support is needed right now?

Life is complicated and we all feel overwhelmed at times. At certain points in our life we find that we can easily juggle work, family, self-care, friends, social networking, the news and our relationships. But there are other times when it all feels like too much – like were are failing and falling apart. It is at these times when some additional support can help. I help individuals when they are going through a life transition such as: getting married, having babies, moving, divorcing or a medical issue. My work focuses on processing the normal feelings associated with grief, loss and change that occurs with all transitions.

Therapy can help.

Therapy offers a calm, quiet space to sort out all that life is throwing at you. My work focuses on mindfulness and understanding the logic of emotion. I help bring perspective and encourage the big-picture goal setting to take place.

Training is important.

I am a trained Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and my focus is on Relational Psychology, Self Psychology as well as Attachment Theory.

I received my MSW from Catholic University and did my post-graduate training in both psychodynamic psychotherapy and couples work with the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, DC.

“What is Relational Psychotherapy?”

The focus of Relational Therapy is to bring insight and understand to the role that your relationships have in your life and how these shape your daily experiences, your self-esteem and your mental and physical wellbeing. One important aspect of Relational Psychotherapy is that the therapist is considered a co-creator of the therapy. This means that together we will look at what happens in your life, with your relationships outside the room as well as what takes place within the therapy room.

One way that clients describe the difference from other therapies is that they say that it feels like I am more present in the therapy and in the room. I realize this is a difficult and strange concept. I find that the most helpful way to find out if I am the right therapist for you is to call so we can schedule a time to meet for a free consultation. I can be reached at 720-551-8084.

“Will therapy help me?”

Therapy is not the answer to everyone’s problems. It can’t solve everything. But I believe strongly that connecting with another person and finding a safe place to gain an understanding of what has its grip on you can open up a path forward. Once a path is revealed – even if it is just the first step – you have forward momentum that begins the process of healing.

“How do I schedule an appointment? Can we talk before we schedule?”

I offer a free 20-minute consultation so we can see if this is a good fit for what you need – I am happy to meet in person or we can talk over the phone. Please contact me here and we can plan a time to meet at my sunny 28th Street office.

You can also call me at 720-551-8084. I look forward to speaking with you.
