My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping is extremely eclectic. I will access where the client is and where they want to be in a month. Because I have over 30 years of experience i can pull from a variety of modalities to treat the presenting issue. Using Hypnosis, Neurolinguistic Programming, or traditional talk therapy I will provide a safe and compassionate arena for you to explore the issues of your life whether its anxiety, grief, or how to get through every day with a better attitude. I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship and a journey that we will take together but always in a respectful and peaceful environment. I enjoy working with couple and families as they journey through their day to struggles and helping them to learn more successful ways of communication.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I enjoy the therapeutic relationship because I am always amazed at the resilence and strength that t people possess. Its always a blessing that people allow me into their lives to help them achieve what ever goals they think are important. I always walk away learning something new about life and myself. I take this responsibility very seriously that people allow me to often see them at their most vulnerable and then get the distinct pleasure from watching them walk away stronger and more confident .
