Life is inherently complex and challenging. Sometimes these challenges feel overwhelming and this is where psychology can help. 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.
Here is a list of issues Dr. Stringer provides therapy for:

As Dr. Stringer listens and understands her client’s story, she works collaboratively in identifying helpful goals and means of attaining them. Sometimes this includes changing a perspective or a behavior. At other times, it might mean learning new ways to overcome challenges, problem solve, or develop new coping strategies. 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.
Furthermore, if Dr. Stringer is not the right professional to meet your needs or is not the best fit for you, she will do her best to help you find someone in the community who is.
