My Approach to Helping
I have been in the mental health field for over 10 years while earning a masters degree in mental health counseling and am currently working toward a doctorate degree in Psychology. I am easily approachable, friendly, and respectful to all which creates a comfortable, trustworthy, and non-judgmental environment.
I believe building a relationship with a client is most important prior to commencing formal therapy. My sense of humor and genuine care for others allows for such rapport. I am hands-on with solution-focused approaches which provide tools for accomplishing people's goals. I utilize various therapies depending upon which is most appropriate for people's needs since every person's situation is unique. I am sensitive to understanding different fears and anxieties that can be present during the therapeutic process and work to alleviate these as soon as possible. I enjoy being a positive aspect in people's lives to assist in facing challenges and guiding people on how to enjoy a better quality of life.
