My Approach to Helping
Are life stressors getting you down? Do you need someone with a listening ear to hear and help you? Let me assist you with counseling services that will provide care, compassion, and encouragement.
I provide a safe environment whereby you can express true feelings, and go right to the problematic areas that brought you to counseling. Instead of tiptoeing around the major issues merely treating symptoms of the bigger problem(s), we can examine the root causes. The intent of this environment is to promote healing, strength, and courage to move forward in your life.
The counseling approaches I use are designed to help you acquire hope and facilitate the healing process. My specialties include marriage, couples, relationships, and family issues. I also provide counseling for individual life enhancement. These areas include depression/anxiety issues; self-esteem/self-confidence challenges; career/vocational situations; and other psychological problems. Populations served include pre-teens, teens, adults, and the elderly.
Primarily, an Existential, relationship-based approach is my philosophical foundation. To aid in comprehensive therapeutic strength, I employ methods from Reality Therapy, Cognitive/Behavior Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy as integrative enhancements to facilitate change most effectively.
Payment methods include cash, checks, and insurance. Although I am not a provider for ALL insurance companies, I can file other insurance claims, of which I am not an in-network provider, for your reimbursement or furnish you a bill that you can file to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Allow me to partner with you. My endeavor is to align myself with you in helping to discover culprits that tend to hinder your progress and to show you how to best alleviate their control over your life. I desire to travel this road of change with you, not ahead or behind you. The way I choose to achieve this goal is by being non-judgmental, using a variety of therapeutic approaches to counseling, and listening with unconditional positive regard as you share with me your stories and future endeavors.
