My Approach to Helping
I believe when people seek counseling, it is because they want to make a change in their lives. They may want to improve a situation, solve a particular problem, make a decision, or achieve a greater understanding of life or personal circumstances.
Initially, I ask clients to explore feelings and concerns, as well as identify desired areas of change. Once the client and I establish an understanding of the situation, we work together to achieve mutually agreed upon goals.
I believe that effective counseling requires a commitment of time, energy, and active participation by all parties involved. Activities associated with the counseling process may occur during and between scheduled sessions.
More Info About My Practice
I employ counseling techniques from a variety of theoretical orientations, based on the individual needs of my clients. Frequently, I adopt cognitive behavioral, family systems, and solution-focused approaches and strive to incorporate elements of person-centered, humanistic therapies. I also believe in the healing qualities of nature and wilderness; sometimes integrating outdoor experiences into the therapy process.
