My Approach to Helping

I grew up in a loving and nurturing environment, observing my mother advocate on behalf of others and providing a listening ear to those who were distressed and brokenhearted. She was an ordained minister and a social work therapist and caring for and helping others were not only her passions but also her ways of life. While I was in high school, several students said they felt better after sharing their problems with me because I was easy to talk to, non-judging, and a good listener. Those listening skills evolved through the years and, after an introductory course in college psychology, I immediately realized I was about to walk in my mother’s footsteps as a therapist. So, what can I say? Caring for and helping others is in my DNA.

I believe that we are to treat people as we want to be treated; therefore, my focus is on what’s important to my client. I utilize a client-centered approach where you will always be respected and your values, preferences, and concerns will guide the clinical decisions. I use motivational interviewing, strengths-based approaches, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Our thoughts govern how we feel; if we can identify our thoughts and manage them, we can become happier, whole, and free. Change your mind and you will change your life.
