My Approach to Helping
I foster a warm, supportive, and productive therapeutic environment for my clients. The choice to attend counseling can be a very vulnerable and difficult decision for people. I help my clients feel comfortable with the therapeutic process by treating them with respect, compassion, and honesty in a judgement free environment. I have experience working in the community with adults and geriatrics that have severe and persistent mental illness. I have an integrative approach to counseling, meaning that I draw from each theoretical orientation, but I primarily work from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach.
