My Approach to Helping

I work collaboratively with clients who are seeking support around life's many challenges and who want the reflection offered by a therapist. The therapeutic relationship is the foundation for any change that may be possible and I need to feel comfortable addressing the kinds of concerns raised by my clients and they need to feel comfortable talking about their concerns with me.
As a therapist, I want to understand the unique circumstances each client brings into a session. I begin by asking clients about the events in their lives that brought them into therapy, how long they have been struggling with the issues and what they understand about where and how they began. I would ask about the physical and psychological symptoms that are related to their issues. Most importantly, clients talk about what they hope will change in their lives as a result of therapy.

I am not an expert of anyone else's life but I can provide a fresh perspective that my clients appreciate.
