My Approach to Helping
Life has a way of forcing us to confront things which we believed we already overcame. Sometimes we look at ourselves and think, "how did I get here?". We can become so complacent and comfortable with discomfort that it becomes our new normal, forming our views and behaviors without our knowledge it's even happening. Sometimes we all just need an accepting and neutral person to process life with in order to regain control and understanding. We will work together to build respect and trust. I believe that counseling is not giving a hand to a person sitting in the mud, it's sitting in the mud with them and getting out together.
My greatest strength as a counselor is my genuine acceptance of every client in a truly non-judgemental manner. I have successfully worked with many clients with a plethora of presenting concerns. I build trusting, open, and honest relationships with clients first, in order to facilitate growth and change.
I know how difficult it can be to share a struggle with someone, I have been there myself, but know that each step taken is progress in the right direction. Give yourself credit for getting this far! I would love to chat to see if we are a good fit or if there's anything I could do to help find your best fit with your journey in counseling.
