My Approach to Helping
Therapy isn't a mystery and it doesn't need to be 'scary'. The process can actually help us live more productively and feel better about ourselves and others. It CAN also help us build healthier relationships. We can't change our history but we CAN reduce the power it has over our lives. We also can't change other people, but we can change who we are and how we interact with others. I would love to help empower you to believe that you CAN build more fulfilling relationships,improve communication, repair broken relationships,increase intimacy, heal past trauma, and reduce stress by listening and equipping you with information and, more importantly, the necessary skills to get where you want to be.
I utilize a brief therapy model focusing on empowering others to make better choices and take control of their lives. My goal is to empower individuals, couples, and families. I am an active therapist, who listens, but also provides an environment where actual behavioral change can take place.
I have extensive knowledge and experience working in a number of mental, social, and emotional health related areas. I have been trained as an educator and have taught in elementary, high school, and college. Currently, I also work at a university which helps me stay current regarding new research and best practices.
