My Approach to Helping
My focus is to provide a safe, empathetic atmosphere where you can process your feelings and use problem solving skills to overcome obstacles holding you back in life. In this safe atmosphere, we can explore challenges together to find the solution that best meets your needs. I am happy to share my professional insight with you. Feel free to reach out anytime to schedule an initial session.
More Info About My Practice
I believe that healing occurs when we become aware of our issues, increase our insight and learn to put alternative coping strategies into practice. I use traditional methodology as well as creative activities, such as guided meditation, relaxation techniques and humor. My approach is strength-based, using a person's natural skills, talents and abilities in the service of their own healing. It is a respectful, positive approach designed to support an individual's journey toward balance.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
This varies largely from person to person. It may depend on the nature of or the severity of emotional distress. Some prefer to come on a weekly basis and others prefer to schedule as needed. I use a collaborative approach to help individuals determine how often they wish to attend therapy. It may be helpful to know that even after people feel better and decide to end their sessions, it is fairly common to check back in for maintenance sessions. Ultimately, you have flexibility and the final say when it comes to your therapy.
