When emotional issues, immediate crisis or psychiatric disorders interfere with your life, therapy can be an invaluable resource.  My goal is to provide you with specific ways to develop self-understanding and increase the resiliency and strengths you already possess.  Life requires us to take meaningful action.  Acquiring the skill to do so begins with focusing your attention on the present moment rather than ruminating on the past or making negative predictions about the future.  By balancing change strategies with acceptance skills you will find it easier to live in the here and now.
