Therapy can help tremendously to reduce feelings of isolation and aloneness that often accompany personal struggle, and helps provide the strength and clarity needed when life becomes seemingly overwhelming.
Sometimes life’s challenges can feel overwhelming. In an environment of understanding and acceptance, psychologists can help you better identify those strengths that have served you well in the past, while at the same time assist you in learning new ways of solving problems and coping with life’s difficulties.
As Dr. Stringer listens and understands her client’s story, she works collaboratively in identifying helpful goals and means of attaining them.

Dr. Stringer will work with you to minimize your symptoms, lessen your emotional distress, and improve your overall functioning and life satisfaction. She uses techniques and strategies shown consistently to be effective by scientific research and clinical practice. See the Treatment Techniques page for more information.
