My Approach to Helping
My approach to treatment is based on the idea that â€œitâ€™s the relationship that heals.â€ I believe that the relationship between the counselor and client is the catalyst for insight and empowerment. I believe that all individuals have the ability to heal and change. My role as a counselor is to support my client through their journey while creating a safe, non-judgmental space for them to share their feelings and experiences. As each client is unique and has their own individual needs, my approach is eclectic, evolving to fit my clientâ€™s personal goals.
When Iâ€™m not in session, I enjoy taking exercise classes, reading, spending times with friends and family, as well as trying new restaurants.
