My Approach to Helping

Many people struggle with issues that come & go over long periods of time. Sometimes, brief changes or improvements can be made; but the issues keep reoccurring or shifting - the details change but the process remains the same. A majority of Counseling professionals & "treatment" methods follow a "labeling," single focus, approach. In contrast to this approach, I view people's lives, challenges, issues, and options, in a more holistic comprehensive manner. A healthy person needs balance in all areas of their life - mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. Restoring balance, control, and a sense of personal clarity is essential.

A blend of client centered treatment approaches that are flexible and solution focused help us achieve relatively quick outcomes for individuals or couples. Cognitive and dialectical behavior techniques, optionally augmented with clinical hypnosis options are very effective for a wide range of couples & individual issues; even if long standing or trauma based.

My work with clients is unique because of the eclectic & holistic approach. If you check out my education & training background on my web page; you can probably tell that I've spent a lot of time learning a variety of techniques, concepts, and methods - things that work based on real life results & valid research. I'm non-judgemental and want to help.
