My Approach to Helping
I have always been interested in the rehabilitation field with a focus on assisting individuals with difficulties overcome their cognitive, physical and mental health impediments, find new meaning in life, and navigate their way in the current society.
My experience in the field involves sessions with patients with mental health issues, cognitive rehabilitation of individuals who have sustained TBIs and strokes, patients with MS, brain tumors and iNHS and participation in the psychosocial rehabilitation of a self-help interactive group of patients with aphasia.
My goals for counseling with my clients are to provide a safe and accepting environment for individuals to share their struggles and go together through the transition process of recovery that will improve their health and well-being, accept their limitations and embrace the experience in order to lead a self-directed and satisfying life while striving to reach full potential. Quality of life is a subjective and unique concept for each individual and the outcome of therapy is to help individuals create new meaning in their life, reformation of self and acceptance of their identity
