I. Psychotherapy for Adults, Young Adults, Adolescents, Families, and Groups

Life Transition and Enhancement
In addition to the above specializations, I facilitate a psychotherapy group for Young Adults (18 to 25).
The Therapy Support Group (TSG) is an insight oriented, "depth" psychotherapy group, and is appropriate for Young Adults who:
1) Are 18 to 28 years of age;
2) Possess the necessary maturity and willingness to engage in an ongoing, weekly psychotherapy group which, at times, may bring up significant feelings, memories, and issues;
3) Are willing to commit to an investigation and exploration of their relationship with substance use and it's association with their past and current relationships, work endeavors, academic achievement, goals, and personal growth; and,
4) While they may not always agree with their fellow Group members all participants must be respectful, courteous, and supportive of their peers in the TSG and agree to abide by all of the TSG Group rules.
The TSG is aimed at facilitating a deeper, emotional exploration of the issues, patterns, and concerns which often underlie substance use, addiction, and patterns of relapse. Additionally, the group process assists group members in their efforts to aquire and practice various relapse prevention tools and strategies. Often times, an empathetic observation or "confrontation" of one member to another results in understanding and growth that might not have been achieved in individual therapy alone.
