My Approach to Helping

If you're hurting and need to heal, or feeling stagnant and would like to grow I'd love the chance to help you! I believe therapy is a partnership between the therapist and you, the client. I want to guide you, help organize your thoughts and feelings, and aid you in finding solutions to your problems.

I believe that humans are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings. A typical treatment approach, as an example, for a person of faith with depression might include professional counseling to address the mental and emotional aspects, diet and exercise andor medication to facilitate physical healing and growth, and pastoral discipleship or study if spiritual health is important to you. You are so much more than just your body or just your thoughts; you are a complex individual!

I love to explore not just your problems and needs, but also your strengths and support. I believe that every individual and family possesses strengths as well as a certain amount of dysfunction. Because of this, I love to use a strengths-based approach in our sessions to give you a more realistic picture of yourself.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

What does "normal" actually mean? This was one of the first questions we were asked in our Abnormal Psychology course in graduate school. Many people define "normal" mental health as the ability to function in day-to-day living, without harming the self or others. Some people have the misconception that to be "abnormal" means one is crazy; that is simply not the case! I believe this is why some people are opposed to seeking mental health services. While the stigma is beginning to slowly melt away it does still exist. One of my goals as your counselor is to help you see that you're not crazy! Rather, you are hurting or having some difficulty functioning in your daily life.
