Individual Counseling & Psychotherapy

Individual counseling provides a safe, compassionate, and confidential environment to address one on one the issues that are concerning you.  While some concerns can be resolved with brief therapy, there is often a need to do deeper work in order to address the root issues that affect many areas of our lives.

 

This type of work usually requires a commitment of at least one session per week and could last several weeks, months, or longer based on the individual goals for therapy.  

Some common issues I work with include:

 

  • Anxiety or Fears

  • Depression

  • Grief and Loss

  • Spirituality / Spiritual Crisis

  • Cross-Cultural Issue

  • Relational Issues

  • Life Transitions

  • Trauma and PTSD

Couples Counseling

I am specialized in working with intercultural couples and helping them navigate personality & cultural differences which could be placing extra stress on the relationship.

 

My approach to couples counseling provides a safe and neutral environment, where each individual can express their thoughts and feelings. As we engage together we explore the relationship history, communication styles, differences, and similarities in family backgrounds, cultures, as well as personalities.

When conducting couples counseling, I utilize a variety of methods based on the needs and goals of each couple, drawing primarily from the following therapeutic models: Imago Relationship Therapy

and Gottman Couples Therapy.

I am also a certified Prepare and Enrich Facilitator, which is an evidence-based pre-marital and marital assessment that helps identify strengths as well as areas for growth in the relationship.
