Welcome to Beyond The Matter Counseling!
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. My clinical orientations are client-centered and cognitive behavioral therapies, and my intent is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
We each have a job in this process. Your job is to create your own individual objectives for being in therapy. Like a good coach, my job is to help you reach them. I have many tools to help you become more effective in dealing with your issue, whether it be emotions, relationships, or events. My goal is to help you make better adjustments and responses related to your area of difficulty without violating your core values or deeply held principles. All significant growth comes from dissatisfaction with the current status, or a striving to make things better.
Everything you do that takes a sustained effort is driven by two motivations: 1) to avoid pain 2) for the benefits gained. The major aim of therapy is increasing your knowledge about yourself and the patterns of interaction between you and others. Therapy becomes effective as you apply new knowledge to break ineffective patterns and develop better ones.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Ready to make life changes, but feel limited by scheduling, commitments, or transportation? I also offer HIPAA compliant video counseling services. Removing some common obstacles that may interfere with scheduling or keeping appointments is one more step towards creating a positive counseling experience.
