My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping my clients is to quickly lessen their worries, and immediately engage them emotionally, and intellectually utilizing solutions-oriented and strengths-based models. Trust, rapport-building and establishing safety, allows my clients to feel comfortable exploring deep-seeded issues. My clients are provided a nurturing and confidence-building environment, where practical, and insightful counseling interventions are implemented. My clients are prepared to conquer and overcome, complicated issues and circumstances.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
The thing I love the most about being a therapist is being able to quickly connect with my clients, and help them explore their strengths, weaknesses and unique states and traits,that truly making them tick. Every day, I utilize my nearly 16 years of counseling experience, to help my clients process and overcome traumatic circumstances. My passion includes breaking down all of the over-the-top psychiatric labels and jargon, while providing my clients with realistic, insightful guidance in a nurturing environment. The feeling I get when my clients reduce their anxiety, depression, mood swings, and other negativity, is like the feeling you get when you wrap hot towels around your body, when you first pull them out of the dryer. For real, I absolutely love providing my clients young and the not as young, with counseling techniques that allow them to think from a totally different perspective.
