In office counseling services provided for adolescents and adults; individuals, families, and couples. My office is located on the corner of North Church Street and NC Highway 150 West in Greensboro between Browns Summit and Summerfield.
Counseling services for adolescents are based in the techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. With the use of these methods adolescents discover solutions to the problems they face and powerful reasons to change. When clients collaborate with the therapist to find solutions they become invested in the change process, making change more meaningful.
Counseling services for adults, couples, and families are based in a systems perspective. Techniques and concepts from a variety of system theories are interwoven into the therapeutic process based on the unique needs of the client/family. Counseling provides guidance on ways to build positive connections, a greater understanding of your partner, and enhance emotional intimacy. The therapeutic setting creates a safe environment in which individual needs can be explored. Strategies for communication and asking for behavior change are developed from research materials and other published works.
The focus of therapy might include:
- Adjustment and transition issues
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Communication skills
- Co-parenting/single parenting
- Parent-child conflict
- Relationship building/repair
- Weight management
