Specializing in Anxiety Treatment, Depression and Couples Therapy
Anxiety can present itself in many forms such as obsessions, compulsions, body problems, generalized fear, and/ or specific phobias. Therapy focused on alleviating anxiety can be highly relieving and life changing.
Depression can present as vague symptom of lethargy, fatigue, anger, or loss of vitality. I find it incredibly rewarding for people to explore the earliest suggestions of depression in their lives.
Growth & Wellbeing
Not all inquiries into therapy are clinical in nature. Often, people need a partnering therapist to explore life’s meaning and connect more deeply to personal values.
I specialize in couples therapy and have enjoyed holding safe space for couples for over ten years. Based largely on the influence of John and Julie Gottman, we will safely explore the critical dilemmas in your marriage and/or relationship.
I like to think about resiliency as the amount of emotional space one has to hold all the difficult things life will bring.
Coaching at EPR is centered by stressing confidential professionalism in all matters regarding our clients. We are a very small firm which privately caters to the needs of professionals.
