I founded SelfWorks, a group private therapy practice, in large part due to my belief that all of us have innate strengths and resiliency that often go untapped. The name SelfWorks was created to share our belief that in the right environment, with the right guidance, the self… works. Therapy can be like an aspirin, a treatment for the relief of your pain and symptoms. Therapy can also be approached like a vitamin, to promote continued health, while helping your mind flourish and thrive. Since it can be used in these ways, we strongly believe there is never a bad time to start therapy. Our licensed psychologists and social workers are sensitive and passionate about their therapeutic responsibility to you and want to help individuals from all backgrounds achieve their best self. At SelfWorks, you have the benefit of a private, confidential therapy with the added advantage of an interdisciplinary consult team that comes together weekly to learn, grow and expand their expertise.

Psychotherapy is not easily described in broad statements and our approach is tailored to your individual needs. You will talk about your concerns, wishes, needs, and intentions, both now and in the past. There are many reasons why this is important and essential to the therapeutic process. Ordinarily, people don’t talk about lots of things because they are too personal, or because they would hurt other people’s feelings, or for some other similar reasons. You will find that with us, you will be able to talk about anything that comes to your mind. The problem most people have in making decisions is not that they don’t know enough, but that they never have had the opportunity of talking things over with someone who doesn’t try to make their decisions for them. Talking about the past can help shed light on the relationships and experiences that have shaped you. You will draw connections between your past and present experiences that will bring about healthy thoughts, self-worth and a new perspective.
