My Approach to Helping

At Belove Counseling we understand that we all have basic needs that we are trying to fulfill. At times, the methods we choose to get those needs met are no longer useful or can have detrimental outcomes to ourselves and our relationships. My approach to therapy begins with focusing on choices. The basic needs that provide the foundation for motivation include the ability to be loving and connected to others, to achieve a sense of competence and personal power, and to act with freedom and autonomy. Ultimately, we all strive to be happy and self-fulfilled. We must determine if the current behavior is the best available choice to take you in the direction you want to go. We will focus on learning to self-evaluate so that the behaviors you choose have the best chance of helping you achieve what you want out of life.

More Info About My Practice

The initial consultation is free. Individual, couples and family therapy offered. Each session is 45-50 minutes with longer sessions scheduled as needed. I do not bill insurance. However, a sliding scale is available for those in need.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am skilled at helping clients think in terms of total behaviors. When people think in terms of total behaviors, they can see that they choose their behaviors and also have the option to change those behaviors. I am very skilled at helping clients recognize how what they think affects what they do. While we have control over the doing component of behavior, we don't have as much control over the thinking component. Behavior ultimately gives us control over all components. My expertise with choice theory can help you recognize that when we change what we are doing, we will notice that our thoughts, feelings, and physiological responses change as well.
