My Approach to Helping
"My goal is to help others and encourage them to strive to be the best they can be. You maybe struggling with uncertain obstacles that knock you off guard. But there are skills to help you focus and get back up again that allow you to express your feelings, needs for empowerment, building self-esteem and strengthen the person you want to be. "Change is essential to reach your goals and getting the blessings deserved". It is ok to reach out for help and talk about whatever is causing problems within you. Therapy is for anyone that needs extra support, an empathetic ear, ability to stay focused, direction to develop the knowledge and positive outcome to be independent."

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
"I am straight forward and build a genuine rapport with my clients. I am open, confident, consistent, set ethical and appropriate boundaries. Clients are provide the opportunity in a person-center treatment allowing you (the client) to be the" foreman" of his or her experiences because clients knows their life story the best. Therefore, as the Therapist, you will be guided through the obstacle, road blocks, anger, tears, and even starting all over again to obtain the goals for a promising outcome."
