More Info About My Practice

Thank you for reviewing my information. I have over fifteen years of counseling experience. I believe in using a strengths based approach utilizing Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Pragmatic Experiential Couples Therapy, or other empirically validated orientations.

I believe counseling role is an active participant and guide in the counselor-client team who together investigates cycles of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that dynamically influence life experiences. My goal is to identify and change ineffective patterns that lead to the discomfort you are feeling. Usually we can create relief quickly if we work together in a dedicated manner.

In higher education, I have taught eighteen different family studies, counseling, and human services university courses over 100 times. I believe counselors must work actively to continue learning in order to remain effective and cutting edge clinicians.

My strengths include creating a comfortable, non-intimidating, and rewarding experience for you. My clinical and instructional experience involving extensive work with clientele have provided me with unprecedented experience. My personality is genuine, kind, and encouraging, which seems to please clients and augment relief from stressors.

My Therapy Focus

Services are provided for difficulties and issues including:
*Individual Counseling

*Social skills and Peer Relationships

In a comfortable, supportive, and warm atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client to help attain the relief from stress, increased life satisfaction, and better relationships.

Services include counseling and therapy, group counseling, parent education, and educational interventions and tutoring, and workshops. Our practice is focused on the emotional, social, behavioral, and educational needs of all persons from early childhood to aging adults.

At-home, digital (online), and in-office services are available.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

What's the difference between talking to you than my best friend or family?

Good question. There is a big difference. The difference is between someone who is subjectively involved in your life, and a professional who has objectivity, training, expert knowledge, and experience. Family and friends have the potential to offer support, yet not in the same method or type.

Professionals can help you approach your situation in a new way:

*Listen without judgment or expectations
*Ensure confidentiality
*Provide helpful perspectives
*Offer genuine support and help
*Listen with no ulterior motives
*Teach new information or skills

What do I have to do during sessions?

In general, you can expect to discuss or learn about the current events happening in your life, history relevant to your issue, and talk about progress (or any new insights gained). Sessions are not 'all talk', however, many times therapeutic activities are completed, if you're interested, as related to the particular issues at hand. Suggestions may be provided for you to consider incorporating outside of our meetings, to support your progress simply as a way to help achieve quicker and more thorough achievement of your satisfaction.

How long will this take?

You are probably very busy, so we will work around your schedule to fit this in while keeping up a regular pace to maintain progress.
