While a person can feel better after a good talk with a friend or relative, for moderate or severe emotional distress, this relief is only temporary. Talking with a trained listener helps alleviate emotional distress for good.
As a Licensed Psychologist, I use my clinical training, professional experience, empathy and knowledge to assist you in developing an increased understanding of your concerns. I provide a supportve and non-judgmental environment to focus on solutions that will help address your concerns and lead you to improved functioning.
-Dr Mark Anderson
While a friend or family member can help alleviate emotional stress in the short-term, a therapist can help by providing knowledge and clinical experience to help increase your knowledge and understanding of problems or concerns that keep you stuck. As a solution-focused therapist, I look forward to working collaboratively in a non-judgmental and empathetic environment to help you find the tools necessary to reduce problems, enhance your life, feel better about yourself and reach goals once thought unattainable.
Therapy is also about fulfilling one's potential and discovering possibilities in life. I would be honored to join you on your journey of self-discovery.
