New Light Counseling
Compassionate Insight, Effective Strategies
Hello and welcome to my website. Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, major life changes or just need someone to talk to? There comes a time when we need guidance from a professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to begin a partnership with you. I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the Northern Nevada area, practicing for over 10 years and I’d love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery. My goal is to help you gain a better understanding of yourself while providing insight and effective strategies. You do not have to do this alone.
" Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light."
A Bit About Therapy
Supportive Services to Live Your Best Life ...
I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. New perspective, new light...
What to expect at our first meeting-
I will provide you with a questionnaire previous to our initial session. We will go over your expectations and hopes and I will then put together a treatment plan that we agree upon as we work together.
It is essential to keep in mind that therapy can take some time: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike, but making even small changes can bring life-altering results.
Services I Offer
A Happier, Healthier You
In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. Depending on your needs through an informational assessment I will determine what I believe would be the best approach through a holistic base. The theoretical approaches I like to mainly use with individuals are Person-Centered, Narrative, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), SFBT (Solution-Focused Brief Therapy).
I offer Couples Therapy sessions to help connect, facilitate and harmonize the relationship through guided therapuetic techniques. The model of approach I most often use with couples is EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy). Find out more about this theory below.
Here For You
I have been trained in family systems theories and offer solution-finding techniques to help navigate issues related to families from the youngest family members to the oldest. I work from a systems approach to family therapy. I will assess the family system and make use of a genogram and usually work within a Bowen, Structural Therapy, and/or CBT perspective.
