My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping is in assisting individuals, couples and family relationships, in emotional distress, finding coping strategies, solutions to triggers of emotional confusion and its symptoms. We will discuss what some of initial desired goals in your process. Our initial sessions will concentrate on the present situation and finding clarity in a positive direction. You will be guided in letting go of negative thinking. You will address a deeper pathway to disengaging from unresolved emotional injury to recovery. Managing emotional health and freedom is finding balance and understanding between the thought and the emotion attached.
I will ask you what you about your emotional struggles. I will introduce you to the success and the passion of Psychology and the Art of therapy, helping to improve communication in marriage couples/ individuals to a positive emotional path, discovering an improved life, re-evaluating the negative thoughts, with positive coping strategies and the will create positive change. You will self reflect expression with a narrative, painting, drawing, a quote or a song,
