Psychotherapy Services

Life experiences can be distressing and disorientating, and may disrupt our sense of ourselves and our lives.  Other life experiences may be simultaneously joyful and quite stressful.  Psychotherapy can offer a safe, warm and nonjudgmental environment for growth and healing, fostering a greater depth of understanding and meaning, developing new perspectives and skills, solving problems, finding hope, reclaiming a sense of empowerment, embracing emotions, revealing compassion and wisdom in suffering, improving relationships, moving toward wellness and sometimes, simply just being.

Christen Scozzafave, LCSW, primarily works from a relational framework, utilizing psychodynamic theories, cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices and strengths based approaches.  Services are tailored to individual needs.

Therapy services are offered to adults and couples.
