My Approach to Helping
** I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**
My approach to therapy is a mixture of Humanistic, Solution focused and CBT. I utilize my 20 years of leadership and counseling experience to help achieving women build equity in their personal lives. Your time is valuable, so I work with my clients to rapidly reach goals and find the root of the problems.
Feel free to call, email, or text me for an appointment. I work Monday through Fridays and offer same day appointments if available.
Thank you, and I look forward to working with you!

What I Usually Need to Know to Help
When you come in you fill out a history form so that I can learn a little more about their family and their history. In the first session we will talk about what brought them into therapy and what they expect out of therapy. I also will ask if they have had experience in the past with therapists, and if so what was the experience and reason they went.
I like to make the therapy process as much about the client as possible, and I want them to have the input and see what they expect and wish to gain.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
I believe that therapy does not have that stigma that it did have for so long, years ago. Therapy has evolved over the years as the school of thought about going to see a therapist. People don't hesitate to go to a medical doctor to help them if they have a cold or another illness, but if they are stressed or other ailment they sometimes hesitate going to a therapist. Going to see a therapist could be one of the best things that you do for your over all health, and self care. It is nice to talk to a neutral party that will have advice and knowledge on the issues that may be troubling you that you may not be able to seek from family or friends.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
I believe it is important for the client to call and talk to different therapists before choosing the therapist they want. I offer a free 30 minute phone consultation as I feel that is a good way to get to know the therapist before you make the appointment. The client should also look at the different profiles to see if they have experience working with the issues they are coming in to therapy for.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Depending on the reason someone may be coming in to therapy will dictate the duration of frequency for appointments. Typically I see people weekly when they first come in and then if they are not experiencing too many distressing symptoms we may go to every other week. My sessions are 60 minutes, as I feel less than that makes it difficult to work on the issues that brought you in to the session that week.
