My Approach to Helping
At this moment, you are perfect exactly how you are. I believe in strength-based therapy. I believe in maximizing the positive and minimizing the negative. The client decides what they want to work on, and I work deep inside the client's conscious and sometimes the unconscious to discover strengths and wisdom they never knew they possess. I also am a Certified EMDR Therapist which my client dig deep into dark areas of their life.
