What is Situational Therapy?

I created Situational Therapy through collaboration with individuals, couples, and families.  It is a brief-therapy modeled after cognitive behavioral therapy and is explicitly focused on helping patients ease their symptoms as quickly as possible. We define your symptoms as a response to certain situations.  

How is it different?

There are two situations in life that everyone will encounter. Situations that you can change and Situations that you cannot. Situational Therapy is where I instruct you, explicitly, on how to change an undesirable situation and how to cope with situations that cannot be changed. This approach applies to individual mental health concerns or problems with communication in a relationship. I provide a roadmap and framework to assist you in making and tracking change.

Who is Situational Therapy made for?

SItuational Therapy is for anyone who finds themselves in a Situation where they are doing the best they can and desperately wants to do something different. Here are some examples:
