Dealing with Fear and Stress within your life.
I believe that we are responsible for our lives, which can be both empowering and frightening. Life is complex and unpredictable, constantly offering chances to grow and to learn. We always have choices in life, and therapy is an opportunity to become more intentional and thoughtful in the choices that we make.
HELP WITH YOUR UNIQUE ISSUES
Feeling out of Sorts. Sadness, Hopelessness and Anxious?
Painful emotional experiences can create distorted and damaging self-perceptions. I see therapy as an opportunity to modify these messages and establish healthier life patterns. Current distress offers the chance to develop healthier coping skills and a more accurate self-understanding that enhance future experiences and relationships.
EXPLORE YOUR FEELINGS AND MOODS
I'm here to help and listen in a safe environment.
My goal as a Therapist is to create a warm, supportive environment in which my clients can begin to understand their feelings while discovering what barriers may exist that limit their full potential. I take an integrative approach to client wellness.
My approach is integrative, which means I bring knowledge from various modalities in which I’ve been trained such as family systems, existential, experiential, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral; but most of all, I am humanistic and relationship-oriented. I think that the counseling relationship is most important in which one person is connecting to another. It’s important to establish a genuine relationship, and you should feel supported and understood, as well as challenged in a safe environment.
Dr. Black has a capacity for understanding that is greater than anyone I have ever known. She's professional and still down to earth, incredibly knowledgeable, and so genuinely caring. It's clear that she is very passionate about her work.
The therapy is creative, open, post modern, challenging, growth-full and has changed my life in many ways. The biggest thing I've learned is that to identify ourselves with our own thoughts and feelings is a large obstacle to growth and awareness.
Dr. Black is one of the most sincere, caring and professional people I've ever had the chance to meet. I think anyone who needed someone to talk to would be in very good hands.
Good as it gets? Yea, I'd say so, she's fantastic. When in need, just do it.
I visited Dr.Black for counseling after my brother passed away. She is very caring, an excellent listener, and very understanding. She always made me feel like I was her only patient. I'd highly recommend her for people like me who aren't really sure whether or not they need help finding their way.
I went to see Dr. Black for couples counseling and highly recommended her. From the first phone contact I felt her warmth and professionalism.
As a therapist, Dr. Black has an innate capacity to be present with me wherever I am at emotionally or cognitively. She allows me time to explore and process my thoughts/feelings.
