My Approach to Helping

Let's face it. We aren't necessarily looking for counselors at a high point of our lives. Quite the opposite, it's generally when life feels out of our control that we start to look for answers. Maybe it's a personal relationship, maybe it's our current work circumstances, or maybe it's just that we need some guidance. Whatever the reason, speaking with someone is a great way to get ourselves back on track. I believe that you are the expert on your own life. You just might need some work to find yourself again. You already have everything you need to succeed, it just might take some work to get there.

I use solution focused, action-based interventions to help find what it is you are looking for. While it is important to delve into the past to answer why we make the decisions we do, it is also important to address the current life circumstances that help us to change the way we approach the world. In finding smaller, more achievable goals, we can address the larger concerns within your life that can render us powerless. This is something you have within you to do, you just might need some help bringing it out.
