My Approach to Helping
I think of myself as a compassionate and non-judgmental counselor. I look at counseling and the therapeutic relationship as a collaboration and an opportunity to facilitate a growth experience emphasizing greater self awareness on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels. I enjoy being able to combine my spiritual background with my strong sense of personal integrity and professionalism in my work helping others. I have a strong background in helping people who are experiencing depression, trauma, anxiety, relationship conflict, and confusion about their identity, general direction and purpose in life.
I have always cherished the chance to be a facilitator of a growth experience with individuals and couples, and to help these same people obtain some greater inner peace and wholeness out of the conflict they experience. I have training and experience in several modalities including clinical and spiritual hypnotherapy.
As a therapist I focus on helping people find their own answers and help release blocks to greater self worth including tapping in and trusting their own inner wisdom. And to assist in this I am qualified to incorporate several holistic healing modalities including Gestalt, hypnotherapy and emotional freedom technique.
