Confidentiality is more than just a part of the field of psychotherapy, it is embedded in its core values. This is the standard for minors as well and it is my role as a psychotherapist to advocate for you. Information shared during sessions will not be shared with others without written consent. Exceptions to confidentiality will be discussed in detail to ensure you make an informed decision when deciding what information you want to share.
Clients often speak of wanting to develop a "pause" button when intense/overwhelming emotions (anger, sadness, fear, helplessness, anxiety) appear. The goal of therapy is thus to help clients respond, rather than react, to their emotions. This service may be particularly helpful for clients seeking help with anger management, PTSD, emotional regulation, intrusive thoughts/feelings, being overly productive, perfectionism, overthinking, fear, anxiety, depression, and other emotion-based symptoms.
The Gottman Method is based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. Therapy works to increase empathy, intimacy, and positive affect between couples, while giving clients tools that promote conflict resolution, effective repairs, and de-escalation.
