My Approach to Helping
The primary approach to therapy, in my view is an egalitarian and empowerment model in which the client is given the opportunity to expand and process presenting issues within the context of their world view, experience, and through their relationship to self and others. I incorporate an eclectic approach to treatment based on client's needs. Everyone is different and experiences the world in a unique way. Assisting a client find their authenticity and happiness for an improved life experience is key to my practice.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love being a therapist because I am offered the opportunity to assist those who are experiencing emotional and coping difficulties. Creating that safe space and developing a working relationship in which unconditional positive regard is offered, promotes healing and self reflection. The passion I have revolving around mental health stems from promoting increased understanding of the importance of mental health as part of overall health and well being. The value of therapy and the de-stigmatization of mental illness will improve overall attitudes and feelings about persons experiencing mental health issues. It works!
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Overall, I feel that the length of treatment varies depending on the presenting issue, possible underlying issues and client participation in treatment. I usually recommend at least 12 sessions to begin with on a weekly basis. Treatment consists of setting goals, developing a treatment plan, and evaluation mid way through. I believe that a client who has been active in treatment and has met his/her goals will determine level of readiness for termination of treatment.
