My Approach to Helping

My approach is to assist individuals, couples and family relationships who are in emotional distress. Developing personalized coping strategies and solutions reducing emotional confusion and its symptoms. We will discuss desired goals in your process. Our initial sessions will concentrate on the present situation and developing clarity with positive directives. You will be guided at how to let go of negative thoughts. We will address a deeper pathway to disengaging from unresolved emotional injury reaching recovery. Managing emotional health and the wisdom is in finding balance and understanding between thought and the emotion freedom.
I will introduce you to the success and the passion of Psychology and the Art of Therapy, helping improve communication in marriage, couples, and the individual to a positive emotional path, discovering an improved life, re-evaluating negative thinking to positivity and the will create change.

What Makes up a Problem?

Confusion make a problem. Clarity and acknowledgment of diversity of view points in thinking reduces emotionality.
Acknowledging and honoring one?s past is honoring one?s self. We have learned. Take the problem and learn from it, while moving forward, present and future
